Nothing feels worse than being a writer who has lost all inspiration. Every time you sit down to write you feel like the well has run dry. You feel empty, disappointed, disconnected, and like your inspiration will never come back.
Is it possible to recover from this type of situation?
Even though it feels hopeless when you’re going through it, it IS possible to get your inspiration back as a writer. However, it’s not as simple as using good writing prompts or putting yourself on some sort of schedule to enforce discipline. Inspiration tends to shy away from too much structure and too many rules, so using these types of strategies may only compound the problem.
I’m teaching a new, live class this May called “The Joyful Writer” and these are exactly the types of writer problems we’re going to be tackling in the class. Yes, it IS possible to move from bored, uninspired, and upset with yourself as a writer to joyful, curious, and ready to explore your own creativity again.
But…it’s not something you can do alone.
Too many writers try to live out their writing life as a one-person island, and while this feels safe, it ultimately doesn’t work. We need connection, emotional support, and community. And that’s why I’m so excited about this new class.
I talk more about the class and what to expect from it in the video below:
If you’re listening to your heart as you watch these videos and you’re getting a YES, it’s time to pay attention to that. Grab this opportunity and don’t let go. I’ll be opening up registration in just a couple of days and it will only be open for five days. After that, the gates close and I can’t allow anyone else in.
So, if this is for you, make sure you sign up for my email list so you don’t miss the announcement when I open the doors day after tomorrow:
And if you have any last-minute questions, please send them way here.
