Don’t force the words; the words will come

It’s the end of 2020 and it feels like a momentous occasion, given what a hellish year this has been. But all that pressure to produce something profound bottles up the words instead. Here’s a short piece about another moment like that I had this past summer, when I had promised myself and all of you to write something original every single day for 31 days in a row.

What I’d like you to take from that is that sometimes, if you go with the flow, you might get something different than what you had originally planned, but it might still be good. If you have writer’s block, try to talk it out, take a break, take a walk, or just release yourself from those expectations and go with the flow. (But if you have a deadline, please meet it — that’s the editor in me talking!) And if this frustrated feeling sounds familiar to you; if you, too, have stared at a blank page in frustration because the words just won’t come, and if you’re an entrepreneur who wants to write better for their business, I might have something for you. I’m launching a new digital course on January 25, 2021, called “The Words Will Come.”

In it, I will help you channel your natural speaking voice in written form, and teach you the art of storytelling. You’ll need both to stand out from the crowd and sound inimitably YOU.
