What are your writing habits?

Are you a journaler? Creative writer? Occasional note-taker or scribbler who wants to write more?

This mini-course is an invitation to make writing a more joyful ritual in your life by understanding the habits you already have (whatever they are). Learn, in this simple 4-part course, to LISTEN to the inner writer within and work WITH them, not against them, to create new habits.

Are you a bit stuck with writing?

Out of practice? Want to have more FUN? Watch the video to find out more about creating a joyful writing habit you can really stick to.

A joyful writing habit is as easy and natural as breathing. As reliable as the seasons.

Want to know how I know? Because for years I fought against myself on this. For years I was sure I wasn’t writing enough, writing well enough, writing honestly enough, writing productively enough, writing academically enough... The list went on.

And one day I realised: all this ‘not enoughness’ I was feeling came down to one thing: I’d lost the joy of writing, the ease of writing, the magic of writing.

As a kid, this came so easily. I wrote for fun. I shared with others simply to revel in and celebrate what I had made (a journal or story). I kept up a writing habit not because I ‘had to’ but because I loved to – and loving something makes it easy.

This self-paced online mini-course is designed to get you over your own feelings of ‘not enoughness’ and bring you back to the page with ease: to create a joyful writing habit that will stick.
