Why a course about the creative process?
For a long time, I thought I couldn't be a real writer.
I had stringent ideas about how "real" writers operate.
I thought there was a "right" way to approach the blank page.
I assumed that because my way looked different than other writers I knew (or had heard of), that I must not be the real deal.
And so I despaired.
But somehow, I also kept writing a little bit in the midst of this doubt and fear.
Eventually, I had the most wonderful of epiphanies: The creative process looks different for everyone.
This realization gave me a sense of freedom and confidence about my writing that I needed.
It gave me permission to experiment with my own creative process so I could build sustainable, nourishing, and more prolific writing life.
I know I'm not alone in these kinds of concerns: Questions and misconceptions about the creative process come up all the time with my clients, as well.
So I've created a new course that focuses on building a writing practice that works for you.
