Nine Simple Steps to a Solid Writing Practice

a step-by-step guide to build writing into your life | taught by Lauren Carter

Course description

“This course, visually beautiful and wise, has helped me to re-connect with my writing. I’m back at it again. Next time I stray, I know I’ll have this course in my back pocket to help me return.” – Angie Gallop

Has your writing practice stalled? Have you always wanted to write but things keep getting in the way: too busy, not enough time, that niggling thought that says, why bother?

The bad news: if you need to write, if it’s in your DNA, if it’s how you make meaning, then unless you figure out how to do it, your life won’t ever feel fulfilled.

The good news: I’m here to help you do just that!

By the end of this online video course, you’ll have:

  • made a creative space in your home
  • found the time to write
  • addressed a few of the most common blocks to writing regularly and practiced ways to overcome them
  • reconnected with the desire you feel to write
  • started to feel like a writer either again or for the first time
  • chosen a meaningful project to commit to
  • learned how to purposefully look at your finished draft (without cringing or running away)

All this, in nine (plus one bonus step!) thoughtful and creative video lessons, that you can do at your own pace and that you’ll be able to return to again and again.

So, come, and write with me!

Discover how you can move past the barriers between you and your writing and build and sustain the practice you’ve always wanted.
