Nes or excessive self criticismThe good news is that you’re not lazy undisciplined or lacking in willpower talent or ambition You just need to learn what’s going on inside your brain and harness the power of brain science to beat resistance and develop a productive writing habitIn Around the Writer’s Block Rosanne Bane a creativity coach and writing teacher for than 20 years uses the most recent breakthroughs in brain science to help us understand in simple. Every so often you come across a book on writing that simply blows your mind with the concepts that it brings to your writer s toolbox This is one of those books After learning about Bane s book in the Poets and Writers magazine I decided to check it out due to its uniue look at creative blocks and brain science What I ended up learning from this book was not only mind blowing in regards to my work but also to my every day lifeBane does a good job keeping this book from getting dull her writing full of small exercises as well as pieces of information to contemplate She doesn t take herself too seriously often adding bits and pieces of humor into the book that help to keep it light hearted Which is good because the topic matter can get a bit heavy at times with the amount of science that is thrown at the reader involving the mysterious science of the brain Bane does an amazing job keeping the information as close to lay man s terms as possible and explains the complex ideas with a flare that any writer can appreciate There is a lot to take in from how the brain can rewire itself how memory works how creativity happens how stress and fear can block our daily writing and much much The most important part however is of course how to deal with Writer s Block Bane presents a number of techniues that rely on how the brain works to overcome our own self destructive tendencies She explains the hows and whys of how it happens in the first place and then goes on to provide the means to banish these issues Everything from beginning a habit to Pavlov s Dogs are raised in this book and pretty much all of the techniues provided make sense and are easy to implement on a day to day basis One thing Bane does do a lot throughout this book is repeat herself Themes and ideas are seen time and time again chapter after chapter Sometimes it s with good reason However after you ve read a couple of the examples for the third or fourth time you get a little sick of reading them However as was pointed out in another book on writing repetition builds memory and as much as I really didn t like it it DID make it stick within my neural pathways and I am less likely to forget those lessonsSo even if you aren t suffering writer s block I would still recommend this book for the interesting information about how the brain works and how things you may not realize are altering your behavior from moment to moment It s an interesting concept to learn that my procrastination in regards to writing can actually stem from my father s heavy handed red pen when he read my childhood stories or the sometimes harsh critiues I took in college It s a scary thought but now at least I can see why that would be the case and I can work on building new neural pathways to keep me writing every single day A pleasant read good writer s voice understandable facts interesting information excellent exercises this book is put together really well and a must for any creative person
