3 Things: Dealing With Setbacks

IMG_8035

Drum roll please…..

 

I’ve started a new YouTube and IG TV series called “Three Things With Heather Demetrios” where each video is focused on three pieces of advice related to a writing or creative process problem.

 

It’s so much fun! I love getting to talk craft and process, so this seemed like a perfect way to do it.

 

For my innaugural video, we’re tackling three ways to deal with setbacks. Whether it’s a setback with your work-in-progress or your creative life, I’ve got you covered.

 

I’ve been noticing that March is a particularly challenging month for many writers. I keep hearing from my clients and students and writer friends that they’re hitting a wall. It makes sense. We come into the new year with so much energy, so much expectation, and then by march, we often feel like we’re falling behind.

 

I wrote about this a bit in my Midnight Missive from this week.

 

In this video, I talk about three key ways to deal with setbacks:

 

1. Keep Showing Up

2. Cheat On Your Book

3. The Book Is The Boss
