Winning the Fight to Write
by Aaron Michael Ritchie
We want to write until it’s time to write and then we want to do something else. Bombshells of household chores blast our plans. Machine-gun phone calls rattle us. Or we get lost in the trenches of that last Google search. Things seem hopeless. However, your own history as a writer is your best weapon against the forces of procrastination, self-doubt, and fear. In this a two hour completely interactive talk, I’ll be asking the audience a series of questions that will turn their muses into soldiers, ready to take orders. This is boot-camp, baby, and your muse needs discipline. So strap on your boots, grab your pen, and remember, writing isn’t for sissies.
About the presenter: September day in Denver, Colorado, and while he’s lived and travelled all over the world, Aaron Ritchey's a child of the American West. Sagebrush makes him homesick. While he pines for Paris, he still lives in Colorado with his cactus flower of a wife and two stormy daughters.
