The 6-Word Question to Get Writing

So guys it as we start to conclude here. I wanna offer you a six word question to help you get writing at any time. Big ask, big ask. But it's a six word question that I think is going to help you remember everything we've covered today. It's going to bring you back into all of this fun that we've been having talking about our shadows and our baggage and our emotional hangups. 'The 6-Word Question to Get Yourself Writing at Anytime' Is one that will bring you back away from writer's block and into your relationship to what you're choosing even subconsciously. To what you desire even if there's some resistance along the way. Simple. 'What have I been avoiding lately?' This not only provides you with some content for actually writing in the moment because often times we're avoiding writing. It is probably something we should probably spend some time pulling apart and writing about. Something we care about, something that matters to us. We may not know what the outcome is. We may not know...

what the goal is. It may trigger feelings of, who am I to say this? It may cause some potential instability around our family and relationships. All we can do though is answer the call. Answer the call. We are conduits. We are messengers, carrier of ideas and stories. We are shepherds of messages. That's a really divine thing and a very special opportunity that we all possess. Doesn't mean that we're better than anyone else who isn't a writer or a creative, but it means that this is a really powerful gift that we have. To usher ideas from the invisible realm, from the intangible plane into the physical world. Even if that's in the space of your own journal. Even if that's for just your own journey of self actualization, being your whole and best self. Which means that everybody around you is going to benefit from it. Asking yourself 'What have I been avoiding lately?' is the best next step that you can take to becoming a student to your avoidance and remembering writer's block it's a thing but it probably shouldn't be. Thanks guys. - [Woman] Dave thank you and I wanted to make sure you let people know how they can follow you. Absolutely.

Like I said I really enjoy talking about (laughter) the weird shadows and things like writer's block cause it ultimately brings us back to ourselves and the work that you're doing in the world. So keep up the good work. Keep writing. Don't be bogged down. Don't believe in the writers block anymore. Remember you're revolutionaries now. To champion the cause of avoidance work. Thank you once again.

Class Description

If you’re a writer, you’ve most likely experienced writer’s block in some form or another. And you’ve probably also tried lots of ways to combat it, like exercising, reading a book, listening to music, drinking some tea, calling a friend or doing random Google searches.

The problem is that none of these solutions address the core, underlying behavioral causes of writer’s block. Author, yoga instructor and healer Dave Ursillo will help you figure out what’s at the heart of your issue, including your emotional influences and creative struggles. He’ll then guide you through the development of an actionable plan to treat your condition so you’re able to achieve your literary goals.

In this class, you’ll learn how to:

  • Conquer the fear, guilt and shame that block your creative writing.
  • Focus on your inner game instead of fixating on your outer game.
  • Side step your tendencies toward indecision and overwhelm.
  • Source your voice from other writers, creatives and teachers.
  • Overcome “imposter syndrome” by being seen, nixing self-comparison, and yoking into your whole true self.
