J Fox Ink™ Debut Author Shyra Jones Talks Writer’s Block

JFI AJTMDiane Morasco: Shyra, let’s talk about writer’s block. How do you deal with it? What are your tips and tricks?

Shyra Jones, M.A., LPC: I am lucky I have only had writers block once and it was due to a poor outline on my part. My trick is to outline the book ahead of time. I believe nonfiction writers are lucky in that respect we do not have to worry so much about characters and plot and all that stuff. We just have to organize facts. I love facts so organizing them was easy. In my first book I got to do more story telling than I think I will do for a while. And those stories I have used in counseling, well a couple of them. Most of them were new and now I have them in my hat to pull from in therapy. For me everything goes back to what would I say in a session, and unless I would use therapeutic silence I always can find my answer there.

A Journey to Myself ™ is an introduction to journal therapy.  Journal therapy, frequently referred to as “writing therapy,” is a cogent way to alleviate a myriad of development, environmental, medical, psychological, and social issues. Journal writing is a remarkably constructive remedy to help individuals cope with conflicts. Many folks who struggle with profound emotional traumas are incapable of expressing their feelings in a physical or verbal manner; however, journaling allows an individual the ability of expression without alarm of humiliation, impediment or retaliation. By setting an expressively perplexing circumstance on paper, one has the capability to observe them from a contrasting angle and acquire understanding into otherwise buried aspects of their actions and conduct. Also, folks who journal discern an advanced wisdom of self-awareness and are able to diminish apprehension and achieve a sense of authorization.
