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.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This self help book gives advice on issues ranging from mental states while writing to writers block and how to work through it to insecurity and inferiority complexes. It helps on almost every issue conceivable to an author, new or old, and really gives you a confidence boost.

The narrator was also pretty good with a smooth voice and an easy narrating style.

Lots to take in

This book covers a lot of information very quickly. Will probably be one I will listen to a few times.
