Episode 85 – Writing with the Inner Critic

The most powerful writing comes from the subconscious part of the brain we access when we shut down the inner critic and just let the words come. Fear of judgement will shut that part down, and we must learn to let it go. How? With lots of self-awareness and work, of course.

Grab your journal and open a new document on your computer before setting a timer to 10 or 15 minutes. Take a deep breath. Then write down all the things your inner critic is scared of, trying to be as detailed as possible. Yes, you’re afraid of being judged but judged for what and why? When you’re done, set your timer for every item on your list and write down why it’s worth taking the risk anyway.
