Publisher Description

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.

Glad I’m not alone

It was so refreshing to read Joanna’s book. I love her writing, and it was great to know that I’m not alone with the thoughts I’m feeling as a first-time author.
I see how this book would be helpful to writers at any level.
Thank you, Joanna!!

An Honest Look at the Author’s Life

In my opinion, this should be a "must read" for all authors. The ups and downs Joanna Penn tackles are things that I wasn't prepared for at the beginning of my journey. Looking back over the years, I've come across all of the scenarios she mentions. It would have saved me a lot of grief if I'd been warned ahead of time of what an emotional rollercoaster the writer's life really is.

This book is a great source of encouragement rather than a "how to" of the publishing business. Each topic is short and to the point, something I think is a plus in the busy schedule we all live in. What I like most is that she's frank and candid and tells it like it is. Too many people will have you believe being an author is easy. It isn't. It is very rewarding, but there are a lot of fears and doubts that we have to overcome if we are going to stick with it.

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
