Words are the voice of the heart. - Confucius
hear your voice first
Writing requires a specific and intense energy.
Whether you write for a paycheck, write to market your business, or write just for the hell of it, you understand the kind of energy I’m talking about.
The emotional and thought energy you expend when writing – and if you let yourself get really vulnerable with your words – leaves you feeling either wrung out or exhilarated when you reach your final word count.
Then the editing process begins. You hand your writing off to a trusted friend or a professional editor to help you bring additional clarity to your words. Sometimes the feedback that comes to you is exactly what you’re hoping to hear. Other times the criticism stings. It shakes your confidence. Writer’s block shuts you down.
As a professional writer for more than 25 years, I’ve been on the receiving end of these situations countless times. Gentle feedback and harsh criticism alike – along with my work as a life coach – have taught me some profound things about writing.
One of the most important lessons to learn is that writer’s block doesn’t really exist.
But what does exist in the writing process is this …
… Excuses, resistance, and procrastination
… Lack of vision
… Underlying negative beliefs about your time and your abilities
… Unconscious commitments to something other than laying words down on the page
… Fear that you can’t really write and no one cares what you have to say, anyway
As a writer, I get it. It’s easy to doubt your abilities and instead believe in the opinions of others you perceive to know more than you. But as a coach, I also know how imperative it is to believe in yourself and your words first. With truth and kindness, I’ll support you as you dive deep to understand what stands between you and the written word.
Through five 60-75 minute coaching sessions, tailored for your specific circumstances, I’ll provide you with the space to hear your voice first and to cultivate trust that your words are the right words.
And when you stand in trust and allow your voice to rise above the feedback, criticism, advice, and well-meaning tips, what will come to you in your writing process is the …
… heart of your message
… intention of your words
… feelings you want to emote
… connection you long to forge
… solutions you can provide
I promise you that when you listen to your voice first, you’ll experience a revival – a revival of your adoration of language, of a desire to show your gifts to the world, and of the need to spread truth and love.
WRITE YOUR HEART OUT
contemplative writing circles
Contemplative writing circles are focused around a specific theme. As you put pen to paper, observe the emotions that pour from you, discover the truth of your feelings, and allow your heart’s energy to create both art and change.
Using stillness, writing prompts, sharing, and non-judgmental feedback, these reflective writing experiences are open to writers of all levels.
