“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.”
Ralph Keyes, author of The Courage to Write and The Writer's Book of Hope
"The approach taken by Rosanne Bane in Around the Writer's Block strikes me as singularly refreshing and intelligent."
Ted Orland, coauthor of
Art and Fear
“Rosanne Bane’s compassion for writers struggling with writer’s block (and more subtle forms of resistance) combined with the ability to explain in clear, simple language how brain science applies to writers make this book a gift to both aspiring and established writers. Around the Writer’s Block gives writers everywhere the information, habits and tools they need to work through writing resistance.”
Brian Malloy, author of The Year of Ice, Brendan Wolf and Twelve Long Months

Brain Science Answers the Writer’s Perennial Question: What the heck is going on in my brain when I want to write — but can’t?
Book available from:
Magers & Quinn
Barnes & Noble
For over twenty years as a writing teacher and creativity coach, I’ve given thousands of writers the tools to bust through writer’s block and other forms of writing resistance.
Around the Writer’s Block uses the latest breakthroughs in brain science to help you understand where writing resistance comes from – a fight-or-flight response hard-wired into our brain, which can make us desperate to avoid the sources of our anxieties – and the only truly effective way to solve that resistance.
My three-part plan rewires the brain’s responses to the anxiety of writing, helping you develop new, reliable writing habits, leave stress and anxiety behind, and become the writer you’ve always wanted to be.
This book is done, but my fascination with the writer's brain continues. Follow my blog, Bane Of Your Resistance, where I share the new things I learn, like how overly ambitious goals can trigger your habenula (part of the limbic brain) and actually reduce your energy and inhibit your writing.
