What people are saying about this mini course

I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m always flitting between the excitement of having an idea and debilitating self-doubt, and so it was an encouraging read, with great tangible tips, and really good exercises


The life of writing is more complicated than you might expect. This course helps you navigate the quagmire.


It's long enough to touch me, yet short enough to not feel dull or unnecessarily stretched. [Exercises are] usually a thing I hate about "guides" or "how to"-books but yours address life (as a writer) itself, rather than telling me what I should write


There is a lot in here that could be encouraging and helpful to a beginning writer

Writing can be difficult. And for those just starting out, or even those who've been at it a while, chasing the dream — the passion of writing — can be maddening. This guide sets out to pull together some of the best advice you could receive in order to stay sane through the process. The guide is not only a fun read, one that might help pick you up on your worst days as a writer, but it also grounds itself in reality with exercises aimed at tapping into that zen space a writer must have to remain on top of their craft. If you're looking for a guide you could use as a daily writing devotional, an occasional fast pick-me-up, or an entertaining book on the minutiae of the writing mind, this is an excellent place to start.
