This timely book details the Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) strategies that can transform a tentative, novice writer into a passionate, productive dynamo, adapting the resourceful states, beliefs, cognitive strategies and behaviours of highly accomplished writers. If you are new to the game of writing, if you feel intimidated by a blank page, if you have ever started a writing project but run out of steam, then this book is for you. Your guide is Dr. Judith E. Pearson, an NLP Trainer and author of three books on NLP and over 200 published articles and reviews. Through the magic of NLP you'll discover the thinking patterns and cognitive strategies of accomplished writers. You'll learn the writing process from beginning to end - from romancing your idea to ruthless editing and revision - and you'll learn strategies for overcoming writer's block. The secret to great writing lies in learning how to alternate between three mindsets: Dreamer, Realist and Critic. The author will tell you exactly how to get into each mindset and how to apply it. This book will teach you the NLP models for creativity, tenacity and meticulous attention to detail.
Read this book and you'll know how to write persuasively, hypnotically and prolifically.
