Your Time to Write Is NOW!

You've worked hard all your life.

You may have reached the pinnacle of your career. Maybe you've reached retirement.

Or maybe you still face family and job challenges every day.

Yet for all your successes and activity, a small (or maybe loud!) voice inside you begs to write that story that has lived in your brain for years. You know the plot like a well-traveled road. You know your characters like family. Maybe you've fleshed it all out in chapters; maybe it languishes in a pile of notes. A story ticks inside you like a time bomb.

The Puzzle of Writing

You want to write . . . but where do you even start? Or maybe your problem is knowing where to put "The End"! Not to mention struggling to identify if the flow is satisfactory, the characters defined well enough, and the setting clear!
