what does it mean to be an author?

Does it mean you have a six-figure contract with Simon and Schuster? Does it mean you’ve got 500k followers on Twitter? What about so many bags of fan mail in your PO Box that you have to hire someone to read it for you?

It can mean that, but it doesn’t have to.

Let me tell you now: YOU. ARE. WORTHY.

The articles here were created with the deepest love for you, magical writer, to help you grow from where you are to where you want to be. What does your writing look like right now? Are you…

  • Frustrated with how little writing you get done day-to-day?
  • Angry at yourself for not doing this thing as fast as you “should”?
  • Ashamed to share your work with people you know because it might be “bad”?
  • Just plain tired, overwhelmed, and stuck with too many disparate ideas and no finished novel?

You’re in the right place. Make a cup of tea and take a deep breath. We will turn your writing life into gold.
