Are you feeling frustrated and discouraged, feeling like you don’t know what direction to take with your manuscript? Have you found yourself stuck in the weeds and need help finishing your book?

There is a huge amount of pressure for us to write – and write fast. Stuck in the weeds when it comes to finishing your book can be overwhelming, leading to procrastinate and set unachievable levels of perfectionism.

  • If you’re a chronic procrastinator, sometimes all you need is a set deadline.
  • Without a plan, everything else is going to take priority over your writing time.
  • When you get stuck – switch to another chapter. There is plenty of time to revisit or delete later on.
  • Join the sprinters – start writing in 20-30 minute slots.

Life can be more distracting than ever these days, with jobs, family demands, social media, you name it.


1. Is It Broken?

This does happen. There will be stories that, no matter how much you love them and how conscientiously you’ve tried to make them work, they just don’t. There are always occasions when you have to pull the plug on a story that is not working.

2. Do You have a Logical Problem

Stories are logical beasts. If there’s a problem with your plot or your characters, there’s a reason. Those are fixable.

Finishing your book is a momentous accomplishment.

Unleash the novel inside you

with compelling characters,

intricate worlds,

and fine-tuned prose.
