Let’s Unstick Your Story

If you have a book idea and you are ready to stop …

  • deleting and rewriting the same part over and over
  • stopping and starting (and stopping and starting)
  • worrying if the idea for your novel is even good enough
  • making excuses for why you’re not writing it
  • telling yourself it will never happen

…then you are in the right place, my friend!

This is the perhaps the hardest part of writing, those moments where you don’t know where to go next.

Some call it writer’s block.
Some call it lack of inspiration.
Some call it doubt in yourself or your idea.

I say you are just STUCK.  And what is stuck can be UNSTUCK.

Is the problem that…

  • you have an idea and you don’t know where to start?
  • you have started writing and what is on the page isn’t coming together?
  • you know something is missing but you just can’t figure out what?
  • you just aren’t sure if the story idea is good enough?
