Have you ever felt that nudge in your spirit, that divine calling to spread your message and make a positive impact on the world?

Are you feeling that inner push to share your story and make a difference in the world, but find yourself bogged down by procrastination?

You’re not alone.

Many of us, especially women of faith in business and ministry, feel this calling but struggle with where to begin. Let’s talk about moving from feeling stuck to writing with intention and impact.


Discovering Clarity and Actionable Planning

I remember the overwhelming feeling of wanting to write my first inspirational nonfiction book but not making any headway. What changed everything for me was finding clarity in my book’s message and audience, and developing an actionable plan.

Step 1: Clarify Your Message and Audience

Start by asking yourself what unique experiences and wisdom you have to share. Who needs to hear your message the most? This clarity will help keep you motivated and focused.

Step 2: Create an Actionable Plan

Once you know what you want to say and who you want to say it to, it’s time to lay out a clear plan. Set specific writing goals, establish a writing schedule, and consider joining a community that offers support and accountability.

The Power of Community Support

For me, joining a writing club specifically designed to help authors overcome procrastination was a game-changer. Surrounding yourself with like-minded individuals can provide the support and resources you need to stay on track.
