Writer's Workshop: How To Tame Your Inner Critic
As Sylvia Plath famously said, "The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt."
Has this enemy ever waged war on your mind and stopped you from writing?
Have you experienced writer’s block and later realised it was due to a crisis of confidence?
As writers and as individuals, there will be times when self-doubt creeps into our minds like a filthy vagrant, poisoning our thoughts and spirits as he squats there.
Self-doubt can stop us in our tracks. We freeze in mid-write and our manuscripts never get finished. But we don’t need to let self-doubt paralyse us and keep us from pursuing our writing goals and from fulfilling our dreams.
This workshop will equip you with the framework to use self-doubt as a tool to actually make you a better writer. Say what? Yes, really.
Discover how you can manage and master the beautiful monster that is self-doubt to help you raise your writing game.
