If your list of self-improvements for 2013 includes a promise to write more, Common Good Books can help. In Around the Writer’s Block, Rosanne Bane--who has worked as a writer for two decades--approaches the problems writers face in a new and innovative way. She tracks writer’s resistance to the source: your brain. “Rosanne Bane understands not only the resistance all writers face but the neurological basis of that resistance. Her ingenious application of research about our brains to the process of writing and her wise counsel overall can help writers at every level.”--Ralph Keyes, author of The Courage to Write and The Writer’s Book of Hope
By utilizing the most recent breakthroughs in neuroscience, Bane outlines three habits and how to put them into practice to defeat writer’s resistance once and for all. Ultimately, the key to defeating writer’s resistance is to develop new, regular writing habits, turning writing from a source of stress to a source of joy and personal growth. Around the Writer’s Block succeeds in bringing readers the tools they need to rewire their brains and become the writers they always wanted to be.
Rosanne Bane has worked for two decades as a writing and creativity teacher at Minneapolis’ The Loft Literary center, the country’s largest center for writing. She lives in Minneapolis with her partner and two dogs, Blue and Kelda.
