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.

    "Since She Put It That Way..."

    This book easily could've been called Getting Over The Emotional Hump Of One's Self For Authors (wordy I know), but Joanna Penn really touched on the mindset of every author going through the writing process (the good and bad) and how to overcome it (the bad that is). This book is packed with great info and should be in EVERY authors library (or in this case audio library)!

    "Remarkable book full of great advice!"

    I'm a big fan of Joanna's Blog, The Creative Pen. For years since I wrote my first book I've faced many problems to start and then finish my second and third books. Actually, I was on my journey to finish the third one when I experienced what some may call "writer's block", and thanks to the good advice found in this book I was able to find the real cause for my procastination and ending up finishing just in time.

    I definitely recommend it. Thanks Joanna, I hope to follow your steps and create more content to share during my lifetime. Please continue with the wonderful work you do.
