January 17, 2015 – Anne Bartolucci

About to start a tough scene? Oh, hey, let’s check out Facebook. Need to write those query letters? I really need to look up something on Pinterest right now, and the pantry has really needed to be organized for years…

Procrastination is one of the biggest challenges writers can struggle with, and when it comes to creative avoidance, our own creativity can be our downfall. Join clinical psychologist Anne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M. as she combines scientific knowledge and her own experiences with clients and her own writing to discuss why we do it, how to get around it, and even ways to prevent it. Don’t put it off – go ahead and plan to attend now!

Outside big smile sized for webAnne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M. became a clinical psychologist because she’s fascinated by people and their stories. The first draft of her dissertation, while not fiction, was still criticized by her major professor for being written in too entertaining a style. By day, she helps people cure their insomnia without using medication and also sees clients with depression and anxiety disorders. By night, she blogs about wine and writes fiction she hopes will keep her readers turning the pages all night. Yes, she recognizes the conflict of interest between her two careers, so she writes and blogs under the pen name Cecilia Dominic.  She lives in Atlanta, Georgia with one husband and two cats, which, she’s been told, is a good number of each. She currently writes the Lycanthropy Files series with Samhain Publishing and has a YA steampunk short story coming out soon in Abyss & Apex.
