Pick up your pen and get writing again.
Our Get Writing Again workshop is an email-based course that sends you a daily creative writing prompt to get you back into the habit of writing. The prompts vary from helping you explore why you haven’t been writing, to learning new techniques, to having more creative fun with your writer’s notebook. Additionally, you get a prompt every day to help you take actionable steps to establish a sustainable daily writing practice.
I designed the Get Writing Again online workshop with self-examination and creativity in mind, to help writers re-establish creative play in their writer’s notebooks. As a Coach for Writers who has helped many writers complete their first drafts, I’ve come up with methods and prompts that help writers discover why they haven’t been writing so they can look at themselves honestly and thereby unblock the path to moving toward a daily writing habit.
Through carefully chosen daily writing prompts and daily coaching steps, you will begin to challenge the story you’ve been telling yourself about your relationship to writing and explore what’s been holding you back from maintaining a daily writing practice.
Via your daily emails, you will:
- Examine your relationship to writing.
- Unpack and reframe the story you’ve been telling yourself.
- Reevaluate where and when you write.
- Make changes to your writing space.
- Learn new ways to be creative on the page.
- Help you find inspiration and source material.
- Learn how to support and pick yourself back up during those times when you stop writing.
- Learn how to set reasonable goals and coach yourself through your goals.
- End up with fifteen days worth of new material to pull from and use to create stories, essays, scenes, or poetry.
- Get a free PDF of the entire Get Writing Again program on the last day.
Free 30-Minute Coaching Session
Everyone who signs up for the writing challenge gets a free 30-minute coaching session via phone or online video conference. No selling, no obligation, just a 30-minute coaching session all about you.
Get Writing Again Testimonials
(formerly called The 15-Day Writing Challenge)
I’m loving the daily exercises. My writing MOJO is definitely flowing now! Thanks Nicole for your comforting support.
“You know, I’ve had numerous teachers throughout my creative life, at schools and academies, and I have been scarred for life by most of them. I truly have felt like a creative cripple for many years. However, I have never felt more nurtured and accepted than under your guidance during the 15 day writing course. That decision to complete the course has been the best decision in a long time. So, thank you.”

“It was a great experience and one that I needed. I haven’t picked up a ‘pen’ in a creative writing journey in many months. The 15 days motivated me to write and I’m glad to report that it’s only whet my appetite. I fell in love with the creative process again. Nicole, you’re awesome. I liked all of the prompts. Thank you, thank you.”

“I began this workshop with lots of apprehension which was similar to how I tackled my writing, unfortunately. But, with your energy and tenacious daily prompts… I was able to defeat the writers block that I often found myself in! I’ve been writing everyday since your workshop and I’m happy to say that I have actually completed two articles that I am preparing to submit for publication! I am incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm, professionalism, and mindful energy that you brought to this 15-Day challenge! I’m actually considering doing it a second time!”
