"Writers are notorious for using any reason to keep from working: over-researching, retyping, going to meetings, waxing the floors-anything."
-Gloria Steinem
Sound familiar? This is what Dr. Karen E. Peterson-who has overcome writer's block herself-calls "the write-or-flight response." In this revolutionary book, psychologist and novelist Karen E. Peterson presents an easy, effective way to beat writer's block in only ten days. Based on new brain research and sound psychological principles, this innovative program shows writers how to conquer writer's block using such methods as:
Exercises to conquer the "write-or-flight" response
Techniques to create that elusive "writing mood"
Parallel monologue and interior dialogue to jump-start the writing process
Checklists to see which side of the brain is blocking you
A template for establishing writing as a part of your daily life
Motivation "to-go"-so that writers can write anywhere, any time
With case examples and a healthy dollop of humor, Write. will help both seasoned and neophyte writers to enjoy the process of sending their creativity-and productivity-soaring to new heights.
