Writing Mindset Coaching for Writers


How many times do you sit down to write and think:

"I want to write, but I don't know what to write."

"I'm a terrible writer."

"No one will want to read what I write anyways."

Do you find your writing life plagued by 




Perfectionist Thinking?

Imposter Syndrome?

Unachieved Goals?

Starts & Stops?

These thoughts and feelings are completely normal.

Writing is hard if you don't understand how your mindset can work against you to create more drama in your mind

than you can write on the page.


But I can help!









I am The Writing Mindset Coach and I work with writers

to help them overcome their writing drama

so they can get their writing written.

About me


I'm Jen Laffin, The Writing Mindset Coach.

I've been writing for as long as I can remember and have been blogging since 2011.

I taught 4th & 5th grades for 9 years which is where I fell in love with teaching writing.

I left the classroom in 2017 to start Teach Write LLC where I help teachers grow as writers so their students can too. It is in doing this work that I really began to see the connection between writing mindset and writing struggle.

I have done extensive study on growth mindset, the concept that our abilities are not set in stone and that through effort and determination, we can always learn new things. This especially applies to the writers that I work with because so many of us carry writing scars with us from our past that we must learn to overcome so that we can enjoy writing again.

I have presented at national conferences and appeared on several podcasts where I talk about the importance of writing mindset.

The most important thing I want you to know about your writing struggles is that you are not alone. Not enjoying writing seems to be the default for so many of us and it has been my life's work to change that.

How can I help you?
