Does your future as a writer feel uncertain?
You write day after day. You dream of bestseller’s lists and royalty checks, but despite your best marketing efforts, those dreams remain out of reach.
You wonder if you’re wasting your time. Does your writing even matter?
Author Colleen M. Story, a long-time professional writer and writing coach, helps you decide whether you truly have a writer’s DNA. She examines why you feel pressured to make money with your work, why the search for a readership is both motivating and discouraging, and why it’s so common to doubt yourself along the way.
Step by step, you’ll gain a clear-eyed view at the challenges a writer faces in the outside world, while taking your own journey inward to discover what writing really means to you.
Should you continue on this path, or adjust your course now before it’s too late? Don’t waste your precious time in indecision. Let Your Writing Matters guide you to your truth and you’ll never look back again.
My Rating: 5 Stars
Consider liking my review on Goodreads.
I was granted eARC access to Your Writing Matters as part of my participation in a blog tour for this title with iRead Book Tours. Thank you to all involved in affording me this opportunity! My thoughts are my own and my review is honest.
Hey look! I’m finally reviewing a writing resource on one of these tours that’s targeted at fiction novelists! (Yes, I absolutely volunteer for the writing resources tours for selfish reasons.)
This book explores how to find inspiration and confidence, how to push through writer’s block, how to realistically evaluate publishing goals, and even bravely asks the question “What if you never publish?” As in, is that fine with you? Your answer determines how much the rest of the advice applies.
I appreciate the fact that this book is full of references to sources and covers self-help and survey sources that aren’t necessarily about writing but apply to this goal of ours nonetheless.
If you truly love writing and you want to get started, this is the perfect resource for you!
