The Better-Faster Writer
with Becca Syme

Every writer has roadblocks and freeways. Things that hold us back/slow us down, and places that allow for freer, faster, easier driving along this road of author life. The Standout Writer is meant to address both the blocks (productivity myths) and the freeways (subconscious processes that could ease your path). It is an introduction to the "better-faster" life and an application of systems alignment and decision-making for writers. NOTE: this is a members only presentation.

From Procrastinator to Practitioner
with Roseanne Bane

Procrastinators are not lazy or undisciplined – procrastination is part of the fight-or-flight instinct hard-wired into the brain. Participants find out how habits and routines rewire the brain, then discuss and commit to simple practices to move out of procrastination into high-level performance. NOTE: virtual meeting link will be emailed to members and registered guests.
