Hi, I’m Nadia Colburn and I’m so delighted to share Embrace Your Story with you! Let me tell you a bit about myself and how I came to create this unique method and book.
I grew up surrounded by books and writers, and when I was in my early 20s I decided I wanted to be a writer, too.
But for a long time, writing was both a great pleasure and a frustration. Something about writing pricked me in uncomfortable ways: I would feel blocked, insecure, and ill at ease.
I worried about what others would think of what I wrote (even if I didn’t show my writing to anyone else). My ego was getting in my way.
I had an Ivy League education, a BA from Harvard and a Phd in English from Columbia;
I’d gotten all kinds of awards for my academic work and writing. After a while, my creative writing began to be published widely. But I didn’t feel at ease with my voice.
It took me years of searching and different kinds of practices to find a method of writing that allowed me to really get comfortable with my voice.
Because I needed to learn how to get comfortable with myself. Sure I had a lot of training how to put words on the page, but I didn’t have training how to sit with myself.
I needed to learn how to drop, at least for a while, my worries about being “good.” I needed to learn how to put aside, at least for a while, my desire to please other people. I needed to learn how to be gentle with myself and tune into my body.
It took me decades to learn how to do this, and I needed to find my own path. But when I did—when I was able to integrate my academic training with a new ability to sit and listen to myself—only then could I come to my authentic voice, and my real power.
I created a unique method that I’ve now taught to thousands of students around the world. This book addresses some of the most common concerns and pitfalls that I see my students have again and again.
And it gives you a simple seven path method to coming into more easeful and powerful writing.
In a world full of so much external noise, in a world of so many imbalances, Embrace Your Story helps you center, rebalance, listen to yourself, and access a deeper creativity.
Be patient, work with the material in the book–there’s a lot there–, come back to it, and see where it leads you!
I’m so excited to be on this journey with you as you come to embrace your story and share your unique voice and creative vision with others!
