If any of these amazing ladies experienced writers block, how’s they get over it?
CAPT Martha LaGuardia-Kotite ‘89
great question - write an article and publish that way, helps. Non fiction or fiction? Just write.
VADM Sandy Stosz ‘82
Jay I wish I’d written articles in Proceedings because I had a lot of opportunities to do so, and many experiences to share. I never made the time. I think the USCG should encourage more lifelong learning and leaders should encourage their subordinates to read and stretch themselves to write.

I never experienced writer’s block, but I made sure I had a lovely, inspiring place to write - a place I looked forward to. In the winter, it was in front of a fireplace. In summer it was looking out the window watching the birds in between thoughts.
