The Writer's Block Myth is a grounded and inspirational guide for what every writer and creative person wants - to live their joy in the process and to create. Whether you're a seasoned writer or new to the page, The Writer's Block Myth is like no other book on writer's block or the creative life out there.


Created for people living in the real world and presented like a conversation with a good friend, it offers a framework to shift your thinking and integrate writing as part of your life, whatever your circumstances.
