“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 it’s hard to find time, and there’s no shortage of reasons to procrastinate: the internet, TV, cooking, cleaning, jobs, family the fact that it’s sometimes really hard.

You’re not alone.

Sometimes, despite the best of intentions (even if you write for a living), it doesn’t quite happen.

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

Not writing, or not being where you want to with your writing, sucks.

It makes you feel terrible, like you’ve failed, and the less you write the stronger the urge to procrastinate becomes.

Even if you’re writing happily it can be a lonely job, and sometimes you just need to get out of the house and be around other writers.

That’s where I come in.

You need time and space away from distraction to focus.

And you need someone who expects you to work. Or a roomful of productive people who expect you to work too.

You’ll be amazed at what you can do when you put your mind to it.
