“From bestselling author to closet novelist, there isn’t a writer alive who hasn’t experienced the terrifying paralysis of writer’s block or the challenges of maintaining momentum and focus. As a therapist specializing in counseling artists, Eric Maisel knows how severely psychology, rather than lack of talent, can limit personal creativity. We can all write serviceably, but truly good writing–deep writing–comes from accessing that place of powerful emotions where we are most vulnerable to feelings of fear and anxiety. With wise insight into the contemporary publishing market, Deep Writing reveals the seven principles that break through mental roadblocks and slay psychological demons, freeing you to write with passion, purpose, and meaning.”
