Today’s episode is a replay of the most popular one published here on the Writing Coach Podcast in the past three years.
So chances are, if you've ever listened to the podcast, you’ve heard this one before. I encourage you to listen to it again.
Try to come to it today, with beginner's mind.
You’re not a beginner as a professional writer. But when it comes to better understanding what’s happening in your own mind—especially when you get in your own way—I want you to hear this with fresh ears.
Challenge yourself not to listen in a passive consumption mode. That is the nature of podcasts. This time, take a more active role. Do the exercise with a pen and freelance journal or on your computer—some kind of external written surface. Use this episode to create new understanding for yourself of what’s happening in your writing life.
If you ever say that you’re stuck with any aspect of writing or freelancing, this is an excellent tool for diagnosing the problem.
