Why can't you just hit publish already?

Jan 29, 2021

Do you ever find your self wondering why you can't just do this already?

Why can't you just write and hit publish?

Everyone else seems to be doing it, and they seem to be doing well with all their followers, too.

But for you, something else is going on, and it's frustrating as hell.


The truth is our society is full of the expectations that you just do things already.

Just exercise already. Just lose weight already. Just make a million dollars. Just be massively successful at your career. Just. Just. Just.

The truth is this perspective ignores almost everything going on beneath the surface.

There are so many valid reasons why you might not just hit publish already.


If you're like me, then you have come by your fears honestly.

You have had experiences where you have been rejected, shamed, or blamed when you shared your truth.

You have been taught in one way or another that who you are isn't acceptable.

And so when you have the desire to write and share your work online, of course this isn't one of those things you can just force yourself to do.

Publishing online is a big emotional risk, where you could potentially be rejected, shamed, and blamed all over again.


If you relate to this letter, and to my work in general, then I know a couple things about you.

I know this is scary as hell, but I also know it's worth facing your fears, because the truth is your message is valuable, worthy, and can truly make an impact on the world.

Even if people have blamed you in the past, you are here to find your true community and make a difference for them.

But because you have had these tender experiences, the path to sharing your writing online will need to be something different than brute force and will power.


There is a healing journey available for you here, where you can learn how to work through your old creative wounds and free yourself from the internalized inner critic that stops you from taking creative risks.

Instead of asking yourself why you just can't hit publish already, maybe ask yourself the same question but with tenderness and honest inquiry. Why can't you hit publish, for real?

Look inside. Look underneath. What is the wound within you that stops you?


I would love to help you see what's going on beneath the surface, so you can determine the true path that will work for you to hit publish on your writing.

Right now I'm offering special oracle card readings, available from now until this coming Monday February 1, where I will pull an oracle card for you to help you see not only what stops you but also what you really need to do to start sharing your marvelous voice with the world.

It's time to start making the impact you're here to make. Find out more about these powerful readings and sign up today!



P.S. I'll be using The Threads of Fate Oracle for these readings. The Underworld card is pictured above. This is a gorgeous and often eerily spot on deck, and I can't wait to share its magic with you!
