about the Class

You’ve got a great idea and are working full steam ahead. Suddenly everything grinds to a screeching halt. Commitments are screaming at you from all sides, you’ve got the flu and you just can’t get to your writing commitments. Stop. Don’t let fearful resistance block your success. In this workshop, we’ll look at the ways resistance shows up in our writing life, the causes of resistance and how it blocks our success. But more importantly, we’ll explore ways to fight the fear. Participants will create a plan of action for the next time that sneaky pest resistance shows up.
