Llewellyn Worldwide, Jan 2018
Turn your writing roadblocks into helpful detours — that’s what author and psychotherapist Bryan Robinson promises with his book of motivational entries for writers, Daily Writing Resilience. Bryan’s book includes entries with titles like:
- The Smart Guide to Managing Stress
- Chained to the Desk: A Guidebook for Workaholics, Their Partners and Children, and the Clinicians who Treat Them
- The Art of Confident Living
- 611 Ways to Boost Your Self-Esteem
- Limestone Gumption (novel)
Daily Writing Resilience: 365 Meditations & Inspirations for Writers
is aimed at helping writers overcome “Imposter Syndrome.” That’s Bryan’s tag for the fear of rejection, procrastination, and fraudulent feelings that hold back aspiring and experienced writers alike. The book is set as as a series of inspirational readings for each day of the year, each one beginning a quote from a successful author and ending with a "takeaway." Here is a quote from one of my favorites, the reading for January 29th:
Transform Your Inner World
'We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already.'
— J.K. Rowling
Make sure your worst enemy doesn't live between your own two ears. Most of us writers thinkg we are our thoughts and feelings. When that happens, the insecure thoughts, feelings, and judgements become our greatest enemy.
We're not our thinking or our feelings. When we can watch everything come and go in our minds, our true Selves with a capital "S" emerge. The transformed mind lets us see how we process what's coming at us. It allows us to step back, sit on the riverbank, and watch with a dispassionate eye the water we've been swimming in.
