Designing Your Writing Life, with Jacqueline Sheehan

Does prioritizing your writing feel impossible, or at best, like a negative spiral out of control?  Do you long to commit to a regular writing routine but find yourself constantly thrown off course?  Using seven key guidelines, we will spend the morning exploring and strategizing the practical and emotional resistance to writing that gets in our way.  Experimenting with some writing prompts, we’ll air out negative voices and self-sabotaging behaviors, chart practical solutions for prioritizing our goals, and design a plan for a positive and achievable writing practice. Online. 

Saturday, April 13th; 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($75)
