All
We’re all time-poor, or so we’re told, and there’s no real, productive time to write, is there? Strange, though, that we can find time for other things when we have to, like work deadlines imposed on us by someone else. In this webinar you will face your excuses, locate the moments that are available, learn strategies for overcoming procrastination, and recognise that you don’t need the perfect moment to be able to write.

You will learn:

  • what lies behind the excuses you can make for not finding the time to write;
  • to identify the moments in the day when you can write, and how to utilise them;
  • strategies to counter procrastination;
  • what we really mean by ‘writer’s block’ and how to abolish it;
  • to let go of the idea that you need to be inspired before you can write – writing creates its own momentum.
