When I first read Around the Writer’s Block: Using Brain Science to Solve Writer’s Resistance
by Rosanne Bane I remember thinking setting 15 minutes on an egg timer and forcing myself to write until the buzzer went off – and doing this consistently, every day – sounded like one of the silliest pieces of advice I had ever encountered. You can imagine how sheepish I felt when, after performing this simple ritual and finding such a wonderful sense of satisfaction as I watched the words I managed to get on paper grew each day and each week. Bane’s book is packed with (seemingly) trivial tasks – but the exercises are designed to build upon each other. In time, you find yourself wondering how you could have missed the value the assigned tasks. Bane’s Around the Writer’s Block will help both new and experienced writers to focus and work productively.
Pick up a copy! I promise – it’s well worth having in your personal library. I refer to mine again and again, whenever the urge to procrastinate hits!
