Hidden Block #5: You’re Not Willing To Give Up Your Excuses And Try Something Different

Over the past week, I’ve been going over the top 5 Hidden Blocks to writing and/or finishing your novel (or short story, screenplay, etc). We’ve now arrived at the final Hidden Block in our series.

You can check out all of the Hidden Blocks in the series here:

And without further ado, Hidden Block #5: You’re not willing to give up your BS excuses and try something new.

And typically the biggest reason why you’re not writing and/or finishing your novel is because you’re still hanging onto BS excuses or “reasons” that are no longer serving you OR you’re unwilling to push yourself out of your comfort zone and try something different than what you’ve been doing.

I’m the first person who will tell you that you have to do what works best for you. Do You is a motto that I live my life by.

But if you’re doing things right now that aren’t getting you the results that you want, then what you’re doing isn’t working for you #SorryNotSorry

So, how does Hidden Block #5 show up in your life?

  • Allowing every little thing to stop you from writing and/or finishing
  • Your writing isn’t a priority for you
  • Being reactive to life instead of intentional
  • Staying in your comfort zone
  • Being unwilling to invest in something that could help you move forward/make progress

Are you suffering from Hidden Block #5 (hint: most writers who don’t write and/or finish are)? 

Here’s how to deal with it:

  • No longer allow your BS excuses or “reasons” to be valid (and they’re all BS, by the way, even the really good ones)
  • Do the work no matter what 
  • Daily mindset work
  • Join the Storytelling Mastermind and get the craft training, professional feedback, support, guidance AND accountability that you need (and have been needing for far too long now)

I had all of these Hidden Blocks and more in mind when I created The Storytelling Mastermind. It is by far the BEST resource around for writers who want to be authors (and authors who want to go even further in their careers). 

And it’s the FINAL TWO DAYS to join as an annual member and get access to a FREE Developmental Edit on your manuscript (up to 85k words; a $1,600 value) and have an entire year to use the service. 

Isn’t it time for you to DECIDE and make your decision non-negotiable? 

Isn’t it time you let go of the BS excuses and just freaking do the thing you’ve always wanted to do (write and/or finish your novel)? 

Isn’t it time you bet on yourself and show up for yourself in a way that you never, ever have before?

Then the Storytelling Mastermind is perfect for you!
