Around the Writer's Block
Publisher: Penguin Putnam Inc
A writing and creativity teacher for more than twenty years, Rosanne Bane has given thousands of writers the tools to bust through self-defeating writing behaviour. In AROUND THE WRITER'S BLOCK, Bane helps us understand where writer's resistance comes from: the fight-or-flight responses hardwired into our brains, which can make us desperate to flee the source of our anxiety (writing) by any means possible. Using the most recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and a three-part plan that helps readers develop new, regular writing habits, Bane coaches us on how to rewire our brain's responses to the anxiety produced by writingturning writing from a source of stress and anxiety into a source of joy and personal growth. Do you want to write, but find yourself unable to get started? Edit your first page over and over and feel unable to move on? Keep your schedule so full that you don't have time to write? You're not alone. Many writers are plagued by “writer's resistance,” behaviour that prevents us from being able to get words down on the page. Writer's resistance can make us feel adrift, hopeless, discouraged and ready to give up. The good news is that you can beat writer's resistance.You just need to learn what's going on inside your brainand harness that knowledge to develop a productive writing habit. *Including Writer's Block, Procrastination, Paralysis, Perfectionism, Postponing, Distractions, Self-Sabotage, Excessive Criticism, Over-scheduling and Endlessly Delaying Your Writing.
