Writers Wednesday

I read an excellent post this week and I'm delighted to share it with all of you.

As writers, we hear a lot of advice on setting goals and this post certainly addresses that issue. But I was particularly impressed by the writer's discussion about identifying the possible obstacles that fill the road to those goals and how we must develop a strategy for confronting those obstacles.

The post by Frances Sackett is titled: "Frances: Writing a novel one bite at a time." You'll find it at the Crowe's Nest, the blog of  Sarah Crowe, an agent with Harvey Klinger, Inc.

Sackett is a novelist with a book,  The Misadventures of the Magician's Dog, coming out this fall from Holiday House.  She shares her personal journey, but it is a story all too familiar to any writer and I recognized myself in  many of her struggles with scheduling writing time, facing self-doubt, and trying to persevere.  Sackett  offers some  excellent advice and five clearly stated steps to taking charge of your writing life.

Well worth the read.
