Most writers struggle with making the time to write, fighting against their own fears and wishing they could write like the authors on bestseller lists. Many writers are perhaps struggling with finding the time and inspiration to stay the course, to continue to show up to the page despite the ups and downs of the writer's life.

This book is a collection of essays that explore the challenges of finding time to write, breaking through writer's block, dealing with deadlocked projects and overcoming the fear of perfectionism, among other topics related to the writing and creative process. Some of the essays in the book feature lessons I learned from other writers, as well as from well-regarded experts in the fields of psychology and neuroscience.

I compiled this book of essays on the writing life with the hope that it will inspire other writers, regardless of whether you're working on your first book or twentieth. The writing life, while it can bring particular moments of frustration, can also be incredibly fulfilling. My hope for this book is that it will motivate writers who need inspiration to keep going, to keep coming back to the words, to the writing life.
