Speaker: Georgie Blalock

How to Keep Writing When Everything Has Gone Wrong

Grief, illness, a new job, changes in the writing market or an unexpected pandemic are major life stressors that can leave you with little emotional energy for writing. With deadlines looming or income dependent on being productive, you may not have the luxury of stepping away from the keyboard. Multi-published romance and historical fiction author Georgie Blalock will discusses writing routines, mindset, goal setting and other tips and tricks to help you keep writing when everything in your life or the world has gone wrong. She’ll also offer advice on what to do when it’s the market that’s changed instead of you and how to adapt in order to maintain your career.
