Everyone needs encouragement, and some days it feels like writers need at least twice as much as everyone else. I've compiled several of my blog posts from the past five years into this volume, titled An Encouraging Word, in the hopes that it could help a writer who feels stuck, or who might be thinking about giving up on writing for a while.
Here's the blurb:
A writer's life is filled with second guessing, and revising, and starting over from scratch. It can make a writer determined to forge ahead, or decide to stop putting words on the page forever.
This collection is meant to raise your spirits when it seems like the writing is at a constant black moment. You'll see how to handle that cranky inner critic, outsmart the fussy muse, and turn avoidance and procrastination into valuable productivity tools.
An encouraging word can help revive your writing mojo--and keep those writerly fears at bay.
Carrie Spencer made another awesome cover, and I'm continously amazed at how she can turn my vague emails into exactly what my brain had in mind. (Maybe it has to do with our shared love of brownies.) Make sure you check out what else she has to offer at her site, Cheeky Covers.
Right now, An Encouraging Word is on sale for 99 cents, at Amazon. I hope you find it enjoyable, as well as encouraging!
