The journey any writer takes to complete a manuscript is full of challenges related to craft as well as emotional ups and downs.

There are so many writing courses and retreats out there telling you 'how to write'.
We believe you know how to do that already!
We also believe that the majority of writers face two main blocks when attempting to complete their work in progress:
Most writers carry around many unhelpful beliefs about themselves and their writing that get in the way of doing what needs to be done to finish the project.
Many writers struggle with organizing and structuring their stories around strongly developed plots and characters that will keep readers engaged and turning pages.
Mastering the elements of story structure and character development will give you the necessary practical tools you need to get your work done; and mastering your own emotions and beliefs - the positive and the negative - will give you the confidence to see your work through to completion.
