On Thursday March 21st, #writenomatterwhat will be tackling Rejection.
This is a free, Mindset Coaching event for Writers at 6.30pm until 8.15pm at City University in building A on the ground floor in room 21.
Have you ever met anyone who said, ‘I love being rejected! It lights up my day.’?
But what if that attitude was possible?
In our dread or fear or rejection we are living life as if at some moment we will fall. This means that we approach our writing with a sense of peril. Sometimes that peril is right in front of our eyes, and we are frozen, unable to write. Other days, it has shifted to more of a subplot as we connect to the main narrative of our life and our desire to write.
Either way, as long as we hold a dread or fear of rejection, we will always be alert on some level to that peril. When we shift our perspective, through mindset work, our understanding of rejection ceases to be a limitation. Here, is when we are able to write exactly what we want, when we want!
The #writenomatterwhat campaign is all about helping writers rise above mental limitations – those fears and dreads – to enable them to be the writers they deserve to be, writing, no matter what!
My special guest for the night will be the brilliant Sophie Mackintosh. Her otherwordly, debut ‘The Water Cure’ was one of my favourite reads of last year. The novel was a wonderful example of poetic prose, with powerful forward momentum. It was the perfect accompaniment to that glorious summer we had. Sophie said this of her writing: ‘I hope young women read my work and that it speaks to them or helps them in the same way; that they feel known and seen.’

Ideas, inspiration and solutions all lie within us. Believing there is a moment of powerlessness along the trail to find them is the equivalent of taking a map of a clear, straight road and drawing a ditch halfway along.
#writenomatterwhat is a campaign to inspire writers involving free events and paid coaching packages. There are also and weekly YouTube videos: Gabriela takes a typewriter to a new location in order to write for ten minutes on a one-word writing prompt before reading to camera.
