Do you have a writing or creative project that you have been avoiding? I have. I am putting it at the top of the list for tackling this week. I started it last April and I hit either a stumbling block or it is just FEAR rearing its ugly head again. I love taking FEAR down to False Evidence Appearing Real. Typically that’s all it is.
What are you avoiding or procrastinating? It is a perfect time for your creative and writing projects that you are avoiding but in your heart really want to do. It can be anything that you are avoiding creatively; writing, gardening, a special recipe to cook, art project, workshop, craft or any other creative project you can think of.
Today I am going to tackle my manuscript, Write to the Finish Line, that I have put on a back burner. I am pulling it forward, taking a good look at it, making some notes, and figure out exactly what I need to do to finish it.
5 Steps to Tackling Your Projects :
- Decide which project has been needling you to work on.
- Name three things you can do to move toward completing it.
- Pick one and begin it.
- Remember to breathe.
- Encourage your inner sweetheart to whisper supportive words to drown out your inner critic.
What are you going to tackle today?
I look forward to hearing what project you tackled this week!
Thank you for sharing and recommending before you leave.

“Sometimes poets write what we wish we could say, and they tell us what we need to know. The poems in Wild Woman Waking lead us to a place where we can proudly refuse to be “bent and broken”; instead, they document a journey to self-acceptance, peace, and understanding – where in a community of women, we celebrate and dance as Mud Women. We become women of spirit and keepers of our own keys.” ~Beth Camp
