“There is an enemy. There is an intelligent, active, malign force working against us. Step one is to recognize this. This recognition alone is enormously powerful. It saved my life, and it will save yours.” – Steven Pressfield, Do the Work
While you struggle to write, you must realize what you are up against. You are in a battle for your creative soul. Your enemy is far more powerful than you and has a tremendous array of weapons with which to assail you. Steven Pressfield calls the foe Resistance. He unmasks it in his masterpiece The War of Art and its follow-up must-reads, Do The Work and Turning Pro. Live, breathe, absorb, re-read over and over these books. Discover the tactics of the diabolical adversary who is determined to stop you from doing anything worthwhile in your life. Pressfield is not only a U. S. Marine veteran, but one of many wars against Resistance. He gives you the tools to win your war against it and turn your creativity into something beautiful to share with the world. He is your brother-in-arms in the belly of the beast and will guide you out. You cannot have a better mentor. His The Artist’s Journey is another you must devour.
