Interrupting Internal Sabotage
Have you ever sabotaged yourself as a writer? Why do writers get in our own way? Given that there are plenty of external barriers to achieving our aspirations, why would our own actions/inactions ever collude with them? This workshop will unpack these questions, dig into the why’s, and build strategies for getting around roadblocks. Each writer will leave with a personal plan for blowing through barriers, both external and internal, so that we might realize our true aspirations as writers.
