Silencing the inner critic and understanding fear
The inner critic has a way of being everywhere, all the time. Whether we're trying to write or create anything else in the world, it's often our constant companion. At times, the inner critic can be so powerful that it prevents us from creating the work we set out to do in the world. And that simply will not do! In this training we'll explore what we can do about the inner critic so that we're able to get our work out into the world no matter what.
In this audio training we'll look at what confidence is, where it comes from and how you can have more of it more of the time. I've found confidence to be something that's often wildly misunderstood and in this training I hope to shed new light on this topic that will support you not only in your writing, but in all areas of your life.
Accessing your creativity
Ever wondered why the best ideas comes to you just as you're drifting off to sleep, stepping into the shower or out walking the dog? In this training we'll explore the source of creativity and how you might be able to begin to access it more reliably when you're feeling cut off from your creative source.
Owning your story and speaking your truth
If your writing is of a personal nature, sharing your story and speaking your truth can feel hugely vulnerable. Sometimes, before we can share our stories with others, we must go through an internal process of owning our stories for ourselves. In this training we'll look at why speaking your truth matters and how to deal with the fears that arise when we do: What if people laugh? What if people criticise? What if I reveal too much? This training will make sure that those fears that arise don't prevent you from owning your story and speaking your truth.
Finding your voice
"Finding your voice" is something most of us have heard. But what does it really mean and how do we it? Does it even matter? What if your voice feels different at different times? What if you feel as though you're copying someone else's style? We'll explore all these questions and more in this training.
Emotion in writing
You likely already know that we human beings are emotional creatures and our behaviour is driven by emotion over and above logic, no matter what we like to think at times! So no matter what the purpose of your writing, creating an emotional connection with your readers is important and that's what we'll be exploring in this training.
Creating the time and space to write
Over and over again people tell me that one of the hardest things for them about writing is finding the time and space. With any luck, the very act of being in this class will be a great start to creating regular time to write but in this training, let's explore a little how you might go about maintaining that practice on an ongoing basis.
The responsibility of writing
I didn't want to leave this class without exploring what it means to be a writer in our world today, what responsibilities we have (if any) when we put pen to paper and why writing, for me, holds an important place in the evolution of our society and planet.
Remember, in addition to all the trainings listed above, you'll also receive twice weekly writing prompts to support you in your writing if you wish to use them. I'll also be on hand to create extra content for you in the form of Q&A, videos, audios etc. throughout the course according to the common questions that arise in the group.
