|On October 18th, 2007 Irene Watson and Victor R. Volkman spoke with author, writing coach and mentor Mark David Gerson. He has taught writing as creative and spiritual pursuit for more than 15 years in colleges, universities and community centers, as well as for groups and individuals as a coach and mentor. His upcoming book, a book of inspiration, instruction and practice for writers and anyone who wants to write is The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write. Mark David shared with us his rationale of why Writer’s Block is a myth, how we create it and how we can un-create it, the role of distractions in blocking us, living with deadlines and commitments, and how we can be in the zone
|Before moving to the U.S. in 1997, he worked for more than a decade as full-time as a freelance writer and editor in his native Canada. His latest book, a story about the power of story, is intriguingly titled The MoonQuest: A True Fantasy and is the first volume in a projected trilogy.
Mark David also produces a free inspirational e-newsletter every month that reaches more than 1200 subscribers in some two dozen countries. He spoke with us from his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
