Writing. It’s the hardest job in the world because your boss is the nagging voice in your head telling you that you’re not good enough.
 
Imagine if you could get rid of that voice.

Imagine the words to your novel or short stories flowing effortlessly onto the page until you reach the magic words, The End. Imagine.

The solution

I have been a writer for over 20 years. But I kept hearing that voice until I started working on the idea of creating a tool to banish writer’s block.

Nobody waved a magic wand but I started to write consistently. Every aspect of writing from outlining, plotting and the actual putting down of words onto the page became a joyful process. I no longer ended the day in a tired old heap of doubt and guilt.

If it worked for me, I figure it’ll work for all writers. Your stories are needed to make this world a happier place.

It’s in the cards

I am creating The Ultimate Writer’s Toolkit to Banish Writer’s Block. It is a deck of cards featuring some of world’s greatest writers and their works.

Each card is a prompt of the subconscious block preventing you from writing that novel/poem/short story. Every day before you begin writing, you’ll shuffle the deck and randomly select a card.

The accompanying book will explain why you’re struggling to write (your subconscious battle) and offer writing prompts to breakthrough that struggle.

It sounds a little woo hoo, but hey, so does Harry Potter. Magic or not, the cards work.

Show your support to end writer’s block

This is a massive project that I expect will take at least 18 months to complete.

That means stealing time from my day job to research, analyse, liaise with the artist who will be designing the cards, and writing the book that will accompany the deck.

Your support will keep the inspiration flowing and ensure that writers everywhere will soon hold in their hands The Ultimate Writer’s Toolkit to Banish Writer’s Block.

For $1 a month (a grand total of $18 for the entire project) you'll get random quotes. Use them wisely. 

For $2 a month (I think that makes $36 in all) you'll get writing prompts. Do with them as you wish.

For $5 a month (what is 5 times 18?) you'll get to write! And see your stuff published. Perhaps. 

For $50 a month (not even going to bother doing the math) you get undying gratitude plus your name incorporated in one of the 54 cards that make up this deck. Oh, and I'll send you a signed copy of the deck as soon as it is published. 

Thank you.

Thank you for your support kind soul. You'll get a random quote each week from the book I'm researching. Why? Because words are the only way I know how to show gratitude.

Thank you for your generosity. I'll post writing prompts each week specifically designed to crush subconscious limitations. You'll have a real feel for what the deck can do way ahead of time.

Thank you for the vote of confidence. You'll get to put those writing prompts from the tier above to good use. Send your stories in and my favourite will be published here and on my blog.

I am bursting with gratitude. Thank you for bringing my dreams to fruition. Your name will be cleverly inserted into the illustration accompanying one card. Have fun trying to find it when you receive your signed copy of The Ultimate Writer's Toolkit to Banish Writer's Block. Let me know if you want to know which card is yours or if you would rather crack the mystery yourself.
