Writing is Hard… Getting Started is Harder

Which is why so few people ever do any real writing.

There’s always something less painful to do instead.

As I sat down to write this message to you, I had to physically restrain myself from abandoning the work and mowing the lawn.

Once I’d been writing for five minutes, though, I was off.

The Blank Page of Doom used to scupper me every single time I sat down to write.

I know, from talking to oodles of would-be writers over the years, that those first few words probably scupper you too. We all struggle to get started. We all struggle to make time to write.

I write for a living and I still struggle to get started—not only that, but I struggle to complete the projects I start.

WHY?

Is the Blank Page of Doom your nemesis? Do you suffer from any of these?

  • As soon as you sit down to write, you reach for some digital candy—Facebook, Instagram, Twitter—and get sucked into social media.
  • You have no idea how or where to start—so you don’t start at all.
  • You’re always telling yourself you’ll start “later”, as if later will ever really come (so you don’t start at all).
  • You think you need big blocks of time booked out to make any real progress on your writing, so you never write at all.
  • You keep finding other shit to do—like tiling the bathroom, rearranging your kitchen cupboards, and colour-coding your wardrobe—rather than actually sitting down to write.
  • You struggle to make progress because you seem to have a pathological need to edit while you write—over and over and over again.
  • You’re so busy and your schedule is so full that you can’t seem to fit writing in anywhere.
  • You self-sabotage like a champ: lost files, sleepless nights, and inviting in distractions.
  • You’re paralysed by the fear that your writing won’t be any good—that people will mock you—and the belief that it has to be perfect first time.
  • You feel guilty and anxious because you need to write those emails, articles, or sales pieces—not to mention that book you’ve been desperate to write for years.
  • Stress and overwhelm are taking over because you keep putting off writing until the last minute—so you’re always scrambling to catch up and you never feel like you’re ahead of the game.
  • Research takes over: it’s easy to convince ourselves that research is crucial (and it is) but over-researching is a classic procrastination activity that stops us from actually writing.
  • You spend a lot of time making timetables and schedules… but little time writing (remember the days of exams and beautifully decorated revision timetables? I do…)

I’m gonna let you into a secret: I do all of this stuff too—and so do many, many other writers. You’re not alone.

But you don’t have to let these obstacles destroy your writing plans. You can overcome all of this nonsense and make real progress with your writing.

How?

With a proven strategy that I know works—not just because it works for me and my clients, but because it’s backed up by neuroscience and psychology.

Write Consistently Faster and Better

Start writing regularly, consistently, faster, more confidently, and better—and enjoy yourself at the same time!

You don’t have to get up at 4 am or give up any of the things you enjoy or sacrifice precious time with your family and friends.

No more guilt-filled conscience-wrangling as you stare at the blank page in terror, knowing you should have started this days ago.

No more 18-hour days as you scramble to meet deadlines and write the stuff you need to write in a panic.

No more telling yourself you “don’t have time” or “you can’t” or “you have all these other important things to do”.

The only thing you need to write regularly, consistently, faster, and better is accountability. A group of like-minded people to keep on you on track, motivated, confident, and enjoying yourself.

What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail?

I know accountability is key to making sure I write every day. But you don’t need to take my word for it: I have some science in my back pocket to share with you.

In 2014, the psychology department at the Dominican University of California conducted a 4-week study into achieving goals at work. 272 participants were asked to set goals. At the end of the study period, researchers recorded how many participants had accomplished their goals—or were making good progress. 

Results were:

  • 43% of participants who thought about their goals were successful.
  • 62% of participants who wrote their goals down and shared them with a friend were successful.
  • 76% of participants who wrote goals down, shared them, and had weekly progress reports with a friend were successful.

Writing your goals down helps, but the biggest indicator someone would achieve their goals was accountability: regularly sharing progress with a friend.

It’s not just success at work that’s improved by accountability, though.

A Michigan State University study found that research participants performed 90% better when they had a virtual workout partner then when they worked out alone.

Participants were put into partnerships to work out, or asked to work out alone. The study found that  people who worked out with a partner outperformed individuals by 200%.

This works for fitness, health improvements, sports achievements—and writing.

Imagine how much you could write and how quickly you could improve if you wrote twice as much as you do now—without sacrificing huge amounts of time to do so.

What Could You Achieve in an Hour?

There may be many reasons why you procrastinate and struggle to write regularly—there are for me—from lack of confidence to lack of ideas to being easily distracted.

But the main reason is lack of accountability. Fix that, and the other problems fix themselves.

If you want to build a healthy writing habit, increase your confidence, and start writing faster and better, I’d like to invite you to join me three times a week for one-hour live writing sessions.

The Moxie Power Hour is ideal for professional writers, aspiring professional writers, and business owners who want to write a book or simply want to write more and better.

Consider this: the average typing speed is around 36 words per minute — 2,160 words per hour.

Let’s say you can write 1,000 wph. If you join this group and attend each of the sessions, you’ll write a minimum of 3,000 words per week, or 12,000 words per month.

In 5 months, you’ll have written 60,000 words—which is the length of a reasonably sized book.

Now let’s say you build a fantastic writing habit and you write for 5 days per week consistently.

You’ll write 75,000 words in just 3 months. That’s very definitely a book. Or 75 meaty articles. Or 150 marketing emails. Or a whole bunch of sales pages and marketing copy.

All in Tiny Beetle Steps—no massive commitments of time required.

How would you like to:

  • Overcome the Blank Page of Doom consistently and confidently—never get stuck again.
  • Write faster, better, and easier than ever before.
  • Ditch perfectionism and embrace the Shitty First Draft—so you can start and finish your writing projects, even if you don’t feel quite ready.
  • Navigate writer’s block and motivational speed bumps and release high-quality writing into the world in vast quantities (without sacrificing evenings, weekends, and precious family time).
  • Benefit from a new writing tip or tool every session: there’s no writing problem a group can’t solve.
  • Set realistic goals each writing session—and share them with the group, so you can celebrate together when you hit your goal.
  • Leave stress, guilt, and overwhelm behind: know you can write consistently well regularly, so your deadlines will never bowl you over.
  • Build a strong, healthy, productive writing habit using tools and techniques backed by research and testing.
  • Beat the procrastination demons for good: no more delays and no more fear of beginning—we’ve got your back.
  • Write with a group of like-minded, motivated, cheerleading writers just like you: we’ve all had the same struggles and we all want to overcome them together.
  • Get access to simple writing prompts so even if you come to a session stuck, you’ll still be able to start writing immediately.
  • Write regularly even when you don’t feel like it and can’t get motivated.
  • Make consistent progress every day in Tiny Beetle Steps—so that in a few months time you can look back and be astonished at what you achieve.

If the answer is YES, the Moxie Power Hour is exactly what you need to succeed in your writing.

BEAT Writer's Block

WRITE BETTER & Faster

Increase CONFIDENCE

The biggest obstacle to writing anything well is a lack of confidence. Can you write? Do you know enough? Will anyone read it — or care?

That lack of confidence leads to procrastination and woe. Building a consistent writing habit, and practising regularly, will build your confidence as well as increasing your skills.

Beat the Blank Page of Doom for good: you'll always be motivated to get started, and getting started is all you need to achieve to write.

The Moxie Power Hour is designed to:

  1. 1
    Beat the Blank Page of Doom and writer's block: never struggle to sit down and write again. 
  2. 2
    Build your confidence as a writer so you look forward to your writing sessions instead of going off to tile the bathroom.
  3. 3
    Help you write better, faster, and easier – because successful writing comes from consistent habits and Tiny Beetle Steps.

I use a simple system to achieve this.

  • Accountability: as part of a group, you'll feel compelled to share your goals, do the work, and celebrate your wins.
  • Community Support: a dedicated group of like-minded writers will keep you on track and in good humour.
  • Time Limit: you won't have to get up at 4 am, lose sleep, or sacrifice precious family time – you simply schedule one hour for writing, and then write.
  • Prompts: beat the Blank Page of Doom with simple prompts to get you started – if you need them.
  • Writing Tips: finish each session with short, simple, actionable writing tip or idea you can use in your own time.

A Quick Look at How it Works

  • Sign up below: you'll get an email an hour before each live writing session with your Zoom link.
  • Come ready to write: you don't need anything except your brain and a writing tool (digital or paper-based).
  • Share your writing goal via the chat box: let us hold you accountable for the next hour.
  • Write! Spend the next 60 minutes writing: work on anything you like, as long as you write.
  • Share your results: let the group know how you got on, how you feel, and what you're going to do next.
  • Come back to the next session: this is about building a regular, consistent habit.
  • Check out the recording: if you miss the live session, you'll get the recording – and you can do that anytime as if it were live.

  • You don't want to write alone – and you want writing to be more fun.

The Struggle to Write is Real—And I’ve Felt it

There’s this myth that writers—people who write for a living, like me—don’t struggle. That we sit down and words just flow out of our brains and onto the paper.

Occasionally—very, very occasionally on magical days—that happens.

But mostly, it’s hard work.

And sometimes, it feels impossible.

I’ve stared at the Blank Page of Doom in desperation for hours before. I’ve had tears of frustration running down my face and pooling in my collarbones because I can’t find the right words.

Hell, I took myself all the way to Turkey for a little private retreat on my own to write a book… and wrote the grand total of 2,809 words then went to the beach. That’s not a book. That’s barely a long-form article. There’s a Book Graveyard hidden in my MacBook and it holds my secret shame: that I, too, have started and not finished at least four books (that I remember).

On some days, I want to do almost anything other than write.

Now I turn out several books a year…

And yet, I’ve written two books of my own with a third on the way—and I’ve ghostwritten 11 books for my clients. Plus countless articles and a load of mini-books and newsletters.

Despite all that struggle, I write — a lot. I write faster than I ever thought I could. And I write well.

I do it not in massive chunks, but in Tiny Beetle Steps, every day.

TTFN,

Vicky

p.s. you may be wondering why I'm charging for this. Two reasons:

  1. Accountability and skin in the game. I want it to be easily affordable – but I also want you to be motivated to actually turn up and write.
  2. This is my business. It's my business to help you become a better, happier, more confident writer so you can charge more for what you do.
