Publisher's Summary

Being a writer is not just about typing. It's also about surviving the rollercoaster of the creative journey.
Self-doubt, fear of failure, the need for validation, perfectionism, writer's block, comparisonitis, overwhelm, and much more. When you're going through these things, it can feel like you're alone. But actually, they are part of the creative process, and every author goes through them too.
This book collects the mindset issues that writers experience, that I have been through myself over the last nine years, and that perhaps you will experience at different times on the creative journey. Each small chapter tackles a possible issue and then offers an antidote, so that you can dip in and out over time. It includes excerpts from my own personal journals as well as quotes from well-known writers. I hope it helps you on the road to becoming a successful author.

Excellent advice delivered beautifully

If you have ever wanted to write, or if you are a write who ever struggles with any aspect of the writing process, this book is for you. Writing is a lonely venture, but with this book as your right hand and best friend, it needn't be lonely any longer.

Joanna Penn offers sage advice on so many aspects of writing, they are too numerous to mention in a short review. But take a listen to the sample for something that added dimension to this book -- the phenomenal narrator, Caroline Holroyd. Her cool, British accent lends even more credibility to already credible advice. It was an absolute jot to listen to her narration.

Give this book as a gift to the writer in your life if you are not a writer yourself. If you are a writer, get this book as a gift to yourself. Although I was lucky enough to be given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, I would happily have paid for this book.
