Good morning, my lovelies. I hope the sun is shining on you today, but if rain must fall may it water the flowers to brighten your tomorrows. Look at me being sappy. *sigh* Anyway, it is that bright spot in your day. It is time to scrounge up your copy of Around the Writer’s Block by Rosanne Bane
If you can’t find a group or you find over time it doesn’t fit your needs, then create your own. Please, stick it out with the initial group you visited for a while. It takes time to get to know people. If you choose to create your own group, please do a little research on the best ways to do so. I have attached a pdf of my critique group’s rules. I did the research and found what would and would not work for us. Use whatever works best for your goals. You can also look in the appendix of your copy of the book and find guidelines on creating your own Around the Writer’s Block support group or visit www.Facebook.com/AWBWritersGroups
We all have habits we would like to change, and the best part is- you can. Habits are formed over time and removing that habit works the same way. The human brain is wired to change. Learning just that is probably one of the most landmark shifts in science. It was once believed (not so long ago) that the adult brain was a fixed point. Hard-wired. Thankfully we now know that is not the truth. Even as adults we have the ability to relearn and even change the way we think. We all know that a child’s brain is like a sponge. They can learn at astronomical speeds, but we are just as able to learn. It may take us a bit longer, but if it something we truly want then we will.
So, what am I trying to say? We can learn to break the bad habits that have allowed writer’s block to run rampant in our lives. I heard this once and it made so much sense,
Polish your sparkle and just keep twirling.
Find joy. Be joy. Enjoy.
I’m always looking for new friends!
