“Every writer I know has trouble writing”

Joseph Heller, author of Catch-22


You should be able to just sit down at your desk and write, right?


But even if you write for a living, time is short. There are so many jobs to do or ways to procrastinate, and sometimes writing is just really hard.


You’re not alone.


The biggest problem you’re likely to have as a writer is not actually writing.


And that sucks. It can make you feel terrible, and the less you write the stronger the urge to procrastinate becomes.


Even if you’re writing happily sometimes you just need to get out of the house, away from the to-do list.

You need time and space away from distraction, a place where you can go to concentrate and create.


That’s where I come in.
