Overview

Do you find that as you sit down to write there is a voice inside your head that is criticizing every word as you type? You get a sentence down and the voice is questioning whether it’s good enough or whether it even makes sense or whether you are headed in the right direction…
 
This is the voice of your inner critic. It’s a part of all of us.
 
The voice of your inner critic can be loud, distracting and unhelpful. Your inner critic may be doubtful, questioning, confusing, overanalyzing, perfecting or uncertain. You may find that this can really slow down and block your writing process. And, that makes sense!
 
So, how do we shift our relationship with our inner critic and support ourselves to move forward with our writing with more ease?
 
In this workshop, you will learn how to shift your relationship with your inner critic, recognize that there’s another part of you that has a desire to move forward and share your contributions, and how to take practical steps towards connecting with this helpful part of you to move forward with your writing with more ease.
