WEBINAR: Overcoming Obstacles in your Writing with Kathryn Heyman
Writers are faced with many challenges when it comes to being creative, getting into flow and writing. Obstacles may get in the way, some of which are externally inflicted (think pandemics, bushfires, moving house) and some of which are internal (mindset, stories we tell ourselves, procrastination, excuses). So how can writers overcome the obstacles that life throws at them, whether internal or external, to allow them to continue to write and write well?
Kathryn Heyman will share her experiences and the strategies, exercises and solutions she’s used in her own work and to help hundreds of writers overcome their own obstacles in order to flourish and publish.
In this session you will learn:
how to recognise internal obstacles
exercises to implement to overcome obstacles internal and external
how others have dealt with obstacles and gone on to win awards
how to use and honour conflict in your writing, allowing it to transform your story and your writing life
When: Wednesday 11 May, 10:30am – 11.45am Where: Online via Zoom Cost: Free for members/$30 non-members
