Is your writing life all it can be?

Let this book act as your personal coach, to explore the writing life you already have and the writing life you wish for, and close the gap between the two.

Gain insights through helpful stories from the authors’ established writing careers. Explore twelve simple (but vital) habits—through jour- naling, writing prompts, bonus activities, and discussion questions— that will help you build a more sustainable and satisfying writing life.

Sage, surprising, endlessly useful!


A genial marriage of practice and theory. For writers new and seasoned. This book is a winner. —Phil Gulley, author of Front Porch Tales
