The book includes valuable case studies and many practical exercises. In addition Kate Evans, who is a psychotherapeutic counsellor, shows that personal growth and self awareness are inevitably linked to the development of the writer. She sees each individual as having a unique approach to realising their full potential.
The reassuring news is that all writers are likely to have blocks from time to time. Even better news is that these blocks often tell us about our approaches and motivation in connecting to our work.
Kate Evans clearly shows a process where creativity does not just take place in the physical act of putting words on a page. There are important fertile spaces between that we have permission to enter and explore without guilt. For some this might mean enjoying a country walk in `breaks', or for others just resting while ideas generate and take shape.
This book is written in a clear and fluid style. The author obviously has extensive theoretical and practical knowledge about the challenges facing writers. In addition she is very open, sharing her own personal experiences and insights as a writer. This makes the book totally engaging and offers an invitation to share Kate Evans own journey towards becoming a highly skilled writer.
Pathways Through Writing Blocks in the Academic Environment is a wonderful resource for both the novice and the experienced writer.
