You’re in the middle—or the beginning, or the end—of writing a book, and you’re feeling bogged down by all the unknowns, plagued by nagging questions and fears that might be preventing you from finishing your book, or worse, from having fun with the process.
Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?
You’ve just landed on a brilliant idea (or you’ve been toiling away at the book you have to write before you die!) and you wonder…
•Should I be talking about my book idea with other people, or blogging about it?
•How much exposure is too much exposure?
You’ve started writing, but there are so many nagging questions about priorities…
•Should I be working on my platform if it’s distracting me from my writing?
•Should I spend a lot of time researching if that’s required?
•Should I focus on the manuscript or the proposal?
•Should I be networking or trying to publish smaller pieces?
You’re finally done, and much to your relief, you’ve gotten feedback from family and friends that the manuscript is in good shape, but the perfectionist in you is battling it out with the part of you that just wants to get a move on it already...
•Do I really need to get my book edited? (My good friend is a pretty good proofreader—and she’ll do it for free.)
•Should I hurry to get my work out there—what if a similar book gets picked up while I’m working on getting my proposal just right?
•I’ve paid for some consultations already and I’ve gotten mixed messages—how do I know what feedback to consider and/or implement?
You’ve started listing agents you want to approach and/or you’ve started sending out queries, and that little gremlin inside your head is bombarding you with all your worst fears…
•What if I can’t sell my work?
•How will I deal with rejections?
•How will I know when to make changes based on feedback and when to stand my ground?
Never fear! We all are here. Join editor and writing coach Brooke Warner and author Deborah Siegel for an eight-week She Writes course unlike any other you’ve experienced. We invite you to witness a writer’s process and gain invaluable insight by understanding that you are not alone with your questions and concerns---and there are solutions and best practices to get you through to the other side.
The series takes you, literally, inside an author’s process as she grapples with a range of practical, emotional, and logistical hang-ups shared by many women who write. Participants will have access to a private group, “The Editor Is In,” on She Writes, where you will be invited to exchange feedback on “homework” assignments offered each week and where you will be engaged in thoughtful exchange that will help you overcome your own unknowns and set you on the path to successfully aligning with your writing goals. Also, by joining you will have the opportunity to be the lucky recipient of free, live coaching during the third or fourth calls, invited to share your process with your fellow She Writers, and be coached directly by Brooke in response.
The full series includes:
1. “Outing Yourself,” with Deborah Siegel and Brooke Warner
2. “Shoulding & Other Time Sucks,” with Deborah Siegel and Brooke Warner
3. “Strategizing for Success,” with a She Writer (yet to be named!) and Brooke Warner
