I understand how it feels to put your writing on the back burner. I spent 10 years neglecting my writing. Nobody should have to experience a decade-long writer's block. Like you, I was frustrated by not having enough support. I felt uninspired and unfulfilled. I was a little lackluster, to say the least.
But when I started running, my writing took off! I realized that the stages of running a marathon are the exact same steps for writing a novel. I became an unstoppable author. As a runner, these steps make it so much easier to understand how to write a novel.
I've critiqued hundreds of manuscripts and helped hundreds of writers get unstuck - because writing makes more sense when you're a writer who runs and you view the writing process through the lens of running a marathon. I can help you too!
