The Reset Week: Investigate Your Writing Process

The writing reset week is a week full of coaching prompts. I wanted to provide you with a catalyst for positive change and an example of how powerful coaching can be. Investigating your writing process is essential for improving it, so here is your week full of prompts. Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions about any of them.


Welcome to the first of the Writing Reset Week! This week I will ask you a new coaching question every day to help you investigate your writing process.

Here is day one:

Write a letter to yourself listing your writing dreams and goals. Put this letter aside. You are going to pick it up again later in the week.


Imagine a time in the future where you have succeeded in achieving your writing goals. Looking backwards, describe the steps that led you there.

What step are you at currently?


Think about what you want from your writing life and ask yourself: What will having this give me that I don’t already have?’


What are you assuming about yourself that is holding you back from your path?


What are you like when you are at your best, creatively?


What has inspired you today, this week, this month of this year? What or who assists this inspiration?


Take a look at your letter from Monday. This is your North Star. Throughout the week, I have asked you questions that that, when answered honestly, will help you consider where you are on this journey, what is holding you back, what assumptions you are making about yourself, and remember what it feels like to be your best creative self, filled with inspiration. Now is the time to reflect on the week and consider how you can move forward mindfully and positively.

If anything has come up this week that you would like to talk about, please do get in touch. I would love to hear from you. As a Certified Professional Writing Coach, I know how important it is to investigate our creative lives and take stock now and then. I hope this reset week has been powerful and informative.
