Rosanne Bane

“Rosanne Bane understands not only the resistance all writers face but the neurological basis of that resistance. Her ingenious application of research about our brains to the process of writing and her wise counsel overall can help writers at every level.”

More testimonials for Rosanne’s book


“I’d written a fairly successful book, then sunken into some sort of weird literary malaise where sorting socks was always more important than writing. Rosanne helped me define the problem, then helped me work (and it was work) my way out of it. Whether you’re a new or seasoned writer, she has much to offer.”
Spike Carlsen, Author of A Splintered History of Wood and Woodworking FAQ

“Rosanne taught me to make writing a habit, and I write every day now, and have for two years. Writer's block is not an issue anymore. Rosanne also helped me to discover that what I really wanted was to write a novel. She helped me discover my heart. I would recommend her classes and services to anyone.”
Eileen Peterson, Published Writer and Aspiring Novelist

Wrestling with Resistance

You love to write/create. You have great ideas, imagination and insights. You are talented and good at what you do.

So why is it so incredibly hard sometimes to actually create?

Why do you have so many ways to avoid your creative work?

Why are you better at finding excuses than sitting down to work?

Because you don’t have a brain! None of us do! We all have a brain system.

Limbic Brain

Your cortex, aka the executive brain, wants to write/create. But the limbic brain, aka the instinctual mammal brain, cares only about being safe and staying alive.

You are literally of two minds about your creative work. When your limbic brain takes control, you kick into survival mode, experience resistance and stop doing what your creative brain loves to do.
The limbic brain is the
instinctual, fight-or-flight brain.
More about what goes on Inside the Writer’s Brain in my new book, Around the Writer’s Block: Using Brain Science to Solve Writer’s Resistance.

Resistance doesn’t have to be the end of the line for your creativity. I can help you – like I’ve helped over a thousand writers, artists and creative people of all sorts – understand why it’s so hard to do the very thing you love to do.

I can help you stop feeling disappointed, frustrated and guilty. I can get you past the resistance so you can keep doing what you do best and love most.

The cortex is your creative brain.
