NEW! JUNE 2023

If you’ve ever experienced writer’s block, then you know the excruciating pain of being stuck, discouraged, and ready to quit. Writer’s block happens to all of us. But having helped hundreds of writers to overcome it, I want to assure you it doesn’t have to take weeks or months to return to the flow. With the right tools, it can take just minutes!


I’m offering you my most effective tools that have helped so many of my students. Inside, you will discover:


  • The 15 most common problems behind writer's block

  • A specific solution and strategy to overcome each block right away

  • A variety of creative and practical ideas to experiment with

  • A list of freewriting prompts designed to help you write through the blocks


These tools are simple, yet powerful for jumpstarting your writing. I know it feels impossible when you're the one who is stuck. But if you apply these solutions, it's not only possible, it's easy and fast!


My goal is to get you from reading my words to writing yours in minutes.


I've identified 15 thoughts that cause writer's block and named each chapter after one. So whenever you feel stuck, you can scan through the table of contents, find the culprit thought, flip to that section in the book, and focus on the specific block you're struggling with. 


The whole point is to help you deal with the block right there and then.


Examples of these thoughts are:

  • I’ve been stuck for too long. It will take me forever to get back into my writing flow.

  • I feel too much pressure.

  • I can’t start until I know how it’s all going to fit together.

  • I don’t know where to start.

  • I’m stuck in this section and I can’t move on until I figure it out.

  • Nothing is going to plan! Might as well give up.

  • What I’m undertaking feels impossible. I feel too discouraged to continue.


Do any of these sound familiar? I hope that when you’re overwhelmed by any of these thoughts, you will pick up this book, get inspired, reset, and gather all your strength to jump back into the game!

If you’re ready to say goodbye to writer’s block once and for all, grab your copy and start enjoying your writing again today!

This book grew out of my own struggles while writing my dissertation. I used to believe in these myths too. And I suffered as a result. But you don’t have to. Based on over two decades of my own professional experience coaching university students and faculty, I will show you exactly how to replace these toxic assumptions with a healthy mindset that will get you to the finish line in a matter of months.

Through my coaching, writing groups, and dissertation retreats, I’ve helped thousands of writers complete their projects.

This book is incredible! I wish I had read it at the beginning of my dissertation.

This book offers so many tools and resources for graduate students and is a must read for all doctoral students, as well as their supervisors!
