Expert Author Showcase: Nancy Nicolazzo

Meet EzineArticles’ Expert Author Nancy Nicolazzo in Today’s Showcase

Thought provoking and compassionate, Expert Author Nancy Nicolazzo is committed to helping other people make the most out of each moment, every day.

Inspired by stories and discussions on how meditation and mindfulness has impacted people’s relationships and lives at home or at work, Nancy is motivated to write and coach. “I have always loved words and fine writing and believe that words can inspire and improve our quality of life,” she said.

Having studied English during her undergraduate career, Nancy was eager to find a strategy that aligned with her interests to write and pass on her insights as a personal mindfulness coach.

“When I learned about EzineArticles I was excited to find a format for my writing,” Nancy stated. “I began writing articles for EzineArticles in February 2009 as a way to create awareness of meditation and mindfulness – two things that have made a difference in my life and that I believe can make people’s lives, the world, better … I do so appreciate EzineArticles as a way to share knowledge with people from all over the world.”

Nancy’s Challenges and Solutions for Expert Authors

What Can I Offer?

Nancy struggled with believing she had nothing to say. She commented that she overcame this by realizing all of the knowledge and experience she had amassed can be helpful to others.

How Do I Beat Writer’s Block?

Writer’s block can come in many forms and it’s often perpetuated by anxiety. “My favorite cure for writer’s block is to relax, take a break from writing, and keep mindful of what happens around me,” Nancy stated. “I look for the beauty of a moment – it may come from witnessing an act of kindness, understanding that grief is a natural part of life, seeing someone act with grace and dignity, and know that it is the simple things in life that can be the most profound.”

Who’s Reading this Anyway?

Finding an audience can be a trial of patience. After “writing for EzineArticles, where more than 11,400 people have read my articles, I realized … what I write is interesting and helpful to many people!” Nancy commented.

But?

No hesitating. Begin the steps to achieving your goal today. “I recommend jumping right in,” Nancy vouched. “Even if [you’re] not confident about [your] ability to write, give it a try and take advantage of what EzineArticles has to offer. There is much to be learned, much to gained – it is an opportunity to share knowledge, expertise, and personal life learning with others.”

Embrace what happens around you! Share with your audience and try Nancy’s solutions to your own article writing challenges. Positive change achieves greatness!

Beautiful, down to earth and truly relaxing piece. Makes things look so simple.

Re writer’s block, I’ve read so many things on how to beat it. At the end of the day, what really matters is what drives you on. If you can’t find it, nobody can do it for you.

Read somewhere that a person cannot be motivated unless he/she finds a good reason for doing what he/she must do.

Nancy,

I really like what you say: “Embrace what happens around you.” That is so true. Anything can become an inspiration to begin writing. And once the writing begins, t gets easier to continue. The ideas start to flow.

Hello Erica,

Embracing what happens around us is like looking through the lens of a camera – it helps us to appreciate beauty and can be inspiring!

It’s a wonderful feeling when “ideas start to flow”!

Hi Nancy. Congrats on the great publicity. I like the way that you handle writer’s block. Whenever I encounter writer’s block, I go for a mile long run outside, and come back refreshed, energized, and ready to go.

Nancy, Yesterday was the first time I read one of your articles and have to agree that your words are very inspirational. Some time ago I used to speak at seminars, and when I recently had to put words on paper via article….I really had to stop and remember to write as you speak. Makes sense. If you clear your head and remain calm, the words will flow on the paper naturally. Thanks again.

Hi Clare,

Being new at writing has it’s challenges, but it also means you have “beginner’s mind”, and according to Zen teacher Shunryu Suzuki, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s mind there are few.”

I wish you good luck and many possibilities with your writing!

Nancy
