The Guru Dilemma – Write Now Coach! blog Writing

October 8, 2019

Note from Rochelle

Dear writers,

Are you ready for the National Novel Writing Month? This annual challenge transforms the process of writing a book into a great old game! If you remember to sign up for the challenge, you should consider taking part in my new class. Gameify your writing life on Wednesday, October 16 at 12:00 pm CT. I will talk about why challenges like NaNoWriMo help us to write more. Visit the course live and for free or buy the recording later. Log in on my workshop page.

Today's tip talks about how we can make the mistake of thinking that the only way to succeed is to follow the guru's advice. We believe that if we could do it that way, we would be successful. But each of us has his own way. I have written aufleveln, an adventure guide that will help you find the perfect path. The book offers tasks to help you find your best writing experience, overcome the inner critic and write.

Do not be content with stories,

How did things go with others?

Unfold your own myth.


Every time I sign a book I attend, someone asks, "How do you write?" Sometimes the question is more specific:

  • Which word processor do you use?
  • When do you write
  • Where do you get your inspiration from?
  • How long do you need to write a book?
  • Outline first?

It's as if the questioner thinks, "If only I knew her secret, I would succeed."

I do not knock: I was there. Sometimes I am still there. When I come across a typing problem, I wonder how a successful writer would handle the situation. I think, "If only I were more like them!"

But here's the thing, writer: you have your own way.

You know what works for you. And all the things you do not know? You have to find out the answers yourself. You need to discover your own sources of inspiration and the process for writing.

Listen to the advice of other writers and gurus, yes. Learn how to master big challenges. Let yourself be inspired by their stories. But never believe that your success depends on how you do it.

Unfold your own myth.
