Friday Gladheart is the author of The Practical Witch's Almanac, an annual personal planner and guide that has been in publication for over 22 years. Her articles and DIY projects have appeared in major Pagan, Wiccan, and secular publications. For over 30 years she has worked as a "private pen", creating books and articles for others as a ghostwriter, but has recently come out of the "broom closet" to author her own works.

I have found ways to manage these blocks by staggering deadlines on a variety of projects.

One manuscript may be due in 45 days while another project has 200 days.
When I'm blocked on the closer deadline due to anxiety, I step away from that project for a day. For that day I force myself to relax, meditate, and affirm that I can accomplish my goals. Then I will work on a project with a more distant deadline to give myself a break.

Working on a variety of projects is helpful to switch from linear thinking to creative thinking. When writing is just not falling into place, I spend some time on research, taking classes, gardening, or experimenting in the herbal lab or kitchen.

When I return the next day to the closer deadline project, I am refreshed, motivated and have a more clear perspective.(less)

The Practical Witch's Almanac was born out of necessity, then refined by real-life feedback from practical Witches all over the world.


Growing up in a rural setting meant that a farmer's almanac of some sort or another was always within reach. Prior to the internet, this was some of the only reading material in remote areas and the almanac was a treasure trove of information. I poured over the...

Friday Gladheart Good to meet you Rusty, hope to chat sometime!


message 1: by Rusty

Rusty Nugent Greetings,

Hopefully, we will become great buddies. I am an 42 year old southern gentleman author. I am working on my third novel. It's an paranormal, horror, adventure, magical, romantic, urban, dark fantasy book series, named Moonwarriors: In An Blackened Dawn. Take a look at my second novel Moonwarriors: Guardians of the Night. They are about heroic werewolves waging war against evil supernatural creatures. Come by and we'll chat, leave a comment.

Until Next Time . . .
