Checking In

Posted by Sherry on March 29, 2016 in Uncategorized |

We’ve been pursuing our writing goals, our writing dreams, for three months now, and it’s time for a check-in. What goals did you set for yourself at the beginning of January? How close are you to achieving them? What is working for you? What are you struggling with? Until now, we’ve been looking at things […]

Let it go

Posted by Sherry on March 22, 2016 in Uncategorized |

“It was a bad writing day yesterday. Today isn’t going to be any better.” “You didn’t write yesterday. Don’t bother writing today.” If I were a betting person, I’d wager you’ve thought those above statements plenty of times before. They are two of the favourite things our Inner Saboteur likes to say to us. The […]

Make it so!

Posted by Sherry on January 5, 2016 in Uncategorized |

Happy New Year! Join me on a goal-achieving adventure this year! Believe it or not, I’m not big on new year’s resolutions. Why? They tend to be impossibly big, vague, and requiring a drastic change with little to no preparation before-hand. That doesn’t mean I don’t make any plans or goals for the new year, […]

Levelling Up

Posted by Sherry on January 10, 2014 in Uncategorized |

As I mentioned in my last post, I had a fantastic holiday break during which I spent my days being nothing but a writer. I finished a first draft of a novel, and have begun major edits on another. Before I started those edits, though, I sat down and took some time thinking about what […]

Finding the Sweet Spot

Posted by Sherry on November 11, 2013 in Uncategorized |

I talk a lot about achievable and exceedable goals. One of the basic principles of achievable and exceedable goals for writers, is that you set yourself a specific amount of time and/or word count that you know you will be able to reach each day. Once you’re able to routinely exceed that goal, then you […]

It Makes a Difference

Posted by Sherry on October 29, 2013 in Uncategorized |

Why does it feel like such a chore to sit down and actually write?  It’s that sense of dread that often leads to procrastination. What if you actually enjoyed the writing process? Yes, it is possible! It starts with the love of the story you’re writing, and a love of the characters. A curiosity  and […]

What keeps you motivated?

Posted by Sherry on September 27, 2013 in Uncategorized |

Autumn has begun. I don’t know about you, but where I live, as beautiful as it is when the leaves change colour, it is also a precursor to the immnent and seemingly endless deep-freeze of winter. Along with the cold and snow comes shorter days and longer nights, the darkness arriving before leaving work, and […]

What’s Stopping You. . . Part 2

Posted by Sherry on September 20, 2013 in Uncategorized |

We are now well into September, and our routines are, if not settled, then nearly so. Do you still find you’re unable to take those small steps towards achieving your goals? Maybe you just don’t feel like you have the energy to get started after a long day, and need to use your weekends to […]

Coaching Conversations With. . .

Posted by Sherry on September 18, 2013 in Uncategorized |

In my other life I’m a Fantasy writer (Thus the reason for “Silencing Your Inner Saboteur” being a tool for writers). I blame this imaginative side of me for what you’re about to read. Througout my trainging as a coach and now in my practice there is a lot of discussion about not judging the […]
