FLOAT • Becoming Unstuck for Writers

As a writer, you know stuckness when you see it. And feel it. And, possibly, fear it. There may be shame. Isolation. The sense that you’re totally alone with this struggle.

Maybe the worst part is not knowing what to do about it. Especially after you’ve tried too many fixes that didn’t work.

First off, you’re not alone. As a writer, you’re part of the timeless clan of writers and storytellers that dates its origins as far back as the ancient cave dwellers. Occasional stuckness probably dates back that far, too.

And here’s more good news: Feeling stuck doesn’t need to be a permanent condition. In fact, sometimes, the stuckness itself can become a key to understanding. When we take away the shame, and give the stuckness a place to be, it can guide us to our next steps.

AM Carley introduces the FLOAT Approach to becoming unstuck: a gentle, stepwise invitation to mindful problem-solving and brainstorming. Your own wisdom gains the space to speak up and be heard.

Use FLOAT to draw on your own hidden resources, restore your confidence, and get back to writing. Become unstuck, your way.
