Author Personal Training

Crafting a complete and compelling story is work. Hard work. It's late night fights with uncooperative characters, bouts of crippling impostor syndrome, and the taunting blink of the cursor on the empty page as you struggle to pry those unwilling words from the deepest recesses of your mind. Most new writers, as they begin to realize this, find themselves lost and wondering if they will ever be able to complete the novel they’ve been dreaming of writing.
