Fall 2021 Productivity Kickstart Group - Creative Catapult Coaching


Online Writer's Group

Writer's Productivity Kickstart - Mitigating the impact Covid-19 has had on your productivity.

Are you stuck on your current project (s) or want some dedicated time and space to work on your writing? Meet with other like-minded writers looking for motivation in a six-week group to support tangible progress on your current project(s). The underlying theme is “What impact has the Covid-19 pandemic had on productivity for creatives?”


Self-care and compassion are essential, but so is progress, especially when you need to eat! When you’re overwhelmed, how do you reconcile the two? This is a discussion element, along with productivity. Discussion uses different parts of the brain. It also adds different perspectives and solutions available to the group.

Who is this for:

·         This is not a writing class, but a space to (support you) make headway on a stalled WiP

 ·         This will connect you with an intimate community of others on a similar journey


·         It is not a mental health support group, but being around others engaged in a similar vision can build resilience and energy.


This is not an instruction course, but I will introduce some tools that may help with moving your process forward—carving out time to write, motivation to write, or balancing other projects so you have time to write,

Use the Power of the Pause—why do you need to stop

 ·         What is working??

 ·         What is not working??

 ·         What do you need to do to move forward?
