Whew, I can’t believe it’s already a week into April and Camp NaNo WriMo. I have been in deep rest mode after a very busy Q1, and it’s honestly taken me more time to get back to a place of motivation, so I’m back with more energy than before!

Today, I’ve got a longer video for you with two main parts. The first is a walkthrough of the new Writer Reset Workbook, and the second half is the April Notebook Challenge. Grab a beverage and come hang out with me on YouTube for a while.

Writer Reset and April Notebook Challenge

Writer Reset

I’m more excited about this than I have been about my writing in a long time! The “Writer Reset” is all about reigniting that spark and love for writing from a pure place, rather than a place of obligation or stress.

Reconnecting to my love of writing is something I’ve had to do several times throughout my 13 year career as a full-time author, and I know how powerful it can be to give myself time to get excited and be in love with stories again. I invite you to join me in this reset, if you’re ready to reconnect with your own joy.

You can start by downloading the Writer Reset workbook from the Heart Breathings Resource Library right now. This is mostly a chance to journal about what’s not working, what used to work, what tools, environments, and actions can help support you right now, as well as a chance to write out a plan for your own Writer Reset.

Get yours when you sign up here:

I’ll send you my brand new, writer reset workbook and add you to my weekly newsletter.


I’ll also send a follow-up email with a link to my full resource library, where you’ll find plotting, scenes, and editing workbooks and more!

      Hi Sarra,

      I’m a Senior at 63 years old, and have wanted to write a book since I was 16. Unfortunately, life continually got in they way…I have recently retired and have purchased a Happy Planner. I’m so excited to begin, I started and stopped with different book plots (about 4) but have not gotten very far because I truly had no plan! Well, that ends now. I know you are young and may not be interested in having a Senior in your group, but you have inspired me so much! I’m going to subscribe to your YouTube channel as well. Thank you for being such an inspiration! I look forward to your new and upcoming videos. Best, Piajoh

    Hi, I'm Sarra!

    I have been self-publishing my books since 2010, and in that time, I've sold well over half a million copies of my books. I'm not a superstar or a huge bestseller, but I have built an amazing career that brings me great joy. Here at Heart Breathings, I hope to help you find that same level of success. Let's do this.
