A free five-day creative writing challenge to help you fall in love with writing again – or, perhaps for the first time!

This challenge is about spending 15 minutes a day getting to know yourself better as a writer. Whether you write for fun, or professionally – I aim to give you the confidence and creativity you need to let your writing thrive.

You may have seen me on Forbes.com where I write about writing, work, career, creativity and self-expression. Or speaking at Blogtacular two years in a row. Or perhaps you’ve seen that I now teach business writing at University of London, City.  Maybe you’ve pre-ordered my latest book Heart, Soul & Sass. But it wasn’t always this way. It’s only through truly mastering my own creativity and self-expression that I’ve been able to go from a professional magazine journalist who struggled to get words on the page (and could only write with pressure and strain) to having a thriving writing practice.

I LOVE the written word, but my work is about MUCH MORE than writing. It’s also about physical and psychological re-alignment. And using writing as a vehicle for whatever personal or professional success you desire.

Join a supportive community of writers

You’ll receive an email for each day of the challenge, with a video and worksheet. Plus, a beautifully designed PDF workbook with all the week’s work. I suggest printing this workbook and keeping it somewhere safe. It’s a great resource to refer to when you need creative inspiration.

To get the most out of the week, you can also join the Journey Beyond Journaling private Facebook group. Here you can ask questions and interact with others (there is a thread for each day). Plus, you can take part in any Facebook Lives I do.

A quick overview (you’ll get five videos and worksheets)

Day 1: Believing you can write

Day 2: Getting in the zone

Day 3: Understanding your writing personality

Day 4: Awakening your senses

Day 5: Focusing on your readers

Ultimately, this challenge is about self-analysis, breaking through blocks, exploring your creativity and becoming a better writer along the way.
