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.

Very Motivational!

Any additional comments?

Wow, this book is really inspiring me to write! I have written a couple of language books, but Joanna Penn is motivating me to start writing, maybe a novel! Thanks Joanna!

The narration of Caroline Holroyd is superb! She has a delightful British accent that is not snobby at all - it’s definitely a pleasure to listen!

I received this audiobook free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher.
