Getting Past the Mental Roadblock to Write


Two of the best books I ever read about writing didn't spend much time on writing. And that makes sense to me. I’m (mostly) in the camp that you either know how to do it or you don’t. Sure, you can get better. But I'm convinced the biggest obstacle to writing and publishing isn’t on the page/screen, it’s between the ears.

Both of those books spent a lot of time on the mental part. That resonates with me (and maybe you) because, even after publishing 15 books, I still battle fear and doubt. Every damned time. Then I finish writing a book, it’s printed, and I wonder what all the fuss was about.

I won’t beat you over the head with a sales pitch. But I’ll tell you that my latest book, called The Color of Your Dreams, follows the same path: Fix your head and you’ll likely fix your writing.

The book is not quite a memoir, but more of a bullshit session about the nonsense holding you back from following a dream, a dream you may have carried for years. I can’t swear this book will get you published. But it could get you off your butt, and that’s step one, two, and three.

The Color of Your Dreams (named after a John Lennon lyric) is available in print on my web site, which is where I’d personally prefer you grab it. But if you’re more comfortable with Amazon, they have it in both print and ebook formats.

It would mean a lot to me if you tried it out and then posted an online review. That's so important to writers. And if you find it in your heart, share this with anyone in your world who you think could benefit. Thank you in advance.

(Warning: This is not a book for young eyes. Some language may offend. Hey, that’s how the book spilled out of me, so that’s the way it’s printed.)
