It’s Your Turn to Write About Resistance

If you’re a regular reader, it’s your turn.

If you ever wanted to write, needed to write and struggled to write, you’re qualified.

If you found your way, even just once, around writer’s block, through distractions and past procrastination, we want to know how you did it.

This Is Our Blog

This isn’t a blog for writers who never experience resistance. This blog is written for and by writers who know resistance from the inside out, writers who’ve tried, failed, tried again and again to figure out how to respond to resistance so we can keep writing.

Writers work alone for the most part. And every writer’s process is unique. Yet, we’re all alone in this together. We can learn so much from each other. Please share your pieces of the puzzle.

What’s your experience with writer’s block, resistance, procrastination, perfectionism, distractions, self-sabotage, overscheduling, delaying your writing?

What got in your way?

What worked? What didn’t?

What have you learned that other writers might benefit from?

Please consider going beyond merely thinking about these questions, even beyond freewriting about these questions.

Please check out the Guest Post Guidelines and email your insights and ideas to me at Rosanne@RosanneBane.com.

I look forward to learning from you!

      Thanks for sharing a link to your take on writing resistance! Just an FYI: My Masters degree is not in neuroscience (though I wish it was sometimes).
