How to Chip off the Old Writer’s Block (and free the writer within)

Posted by & filed under funny, talks, fathers.

As an improviser, I know that saying “yes” opens you to new ideas and better ways of getting things done. As a writer and teacher who is over 50,  I know sometimes life brings you choices.

This year, I made a promise to do three things I love:  write, teach, and travel.

That’s why I am taking “Chip off the Old Writer’s Block” on the road. This year I’m heading to Toronto Island, VancouverOakville, and da dah….Peru!

How do you know if “Chip off the Old Writer’s Block” is for you?  Answer the questions below:

  • Do you want to write but never seem to have the time?
  • Do you have a story to tell but don’t know how to get it on the page?
  • Did you used to have good ideas but they seem to have dried up?
  • Is your writer’s block the size of an iceberg? The kind of frozen block that did in the Titanic?

If you answered “yes” to even one of the above questions, attending the “Chip off the Old Writer’s Block” is guaranteed to get the creative juices flowing.

Really? How?

I have more than thirty years of experience writing and teaching writers. I know how to get you writing, or painting, or, for that matter, any other ‘ing you can think of. Using a series of right-brained exercises, I can help you make the shift from a wannabe writer to an “I did it!” writer. Let me show you how to follow the compass to your subconscious. You’ll experience the first success right in the classroom with a group of like-minded people, and you’ll leave with a map for future writing success.
