UNBLOCK YOUR CREATIVE BLOCK: How To Access Your Infinite Imagination and Free Your Creativity


Creative blocks come in different guises and strengths, but the solution lies in understanding how creativity works within the framework and dynamics of your conscious and subconscious minds, and in applying some simple and effective techniques.

If your mission is to be prolific and to create fabulous written or artistic material that attracts opportunities in the marketplace without worrying, freezing or procrastinating every time you sit down to write or draw then this masterclass may well be the important key you need to move in that direction.

Who Should Participate

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • You sit down to begin writing, and many hours later you’re still staring at a blank screen or page.
  • You pull out your sketchbook to rough out some illustrations or sequential art, but start focusing on the housework instead.
  • Every time you finish a creative project you feel a sense of dread in the pit of your stomach, wondering when (or if) you’re ever going to write or illustrate again.
  • You’ve received praise for your first published book, but enter a state of inertia because you have absolutely NO idea what your second one is going to be about.
  • You’ve been prolific in a particular niche or genre and now want to break out and experiment, but your fear of entering your “discomfort” zone has paralysed you.
  • You want to partner with bigger and more well-known comics collaborators, authors or artists in your space, but you know they wouldn’t be interested because your creative output has been unoriginal and ordinary.
  • You would love to be in possession of a proven system to banish creative blocks, so you can truly find your creative voice and focus on achieving the writing or illustration career of your dreams.

If this sounds like you, then know you’re not alone. In fact, MANY comics creators, writers and artists struggle with these very same issues. And that’s because there is a common thread running through all of these problems—

They don’t understand how their greater subconscious mind – the seat of their creativity – operates, or indeed how to access this free flowing inspirational state over and over again with ease.
