Does sending your work out into the world feel like a thankless task? In this mini-course course, you'll learn why we need a shift in minset, how to get out of the 'write one thing, send to one place' cycle, and how to think differently about rejection. You'll be added to my author mailing list and to get insider information about my latest books and courses before they are released. Sign up for free today.


I regularly update my blog with writing advice for beginners as well as established writers. I've covered topics such as mindfulness, starting to write, generating ideas, finding time to write, an alternative guide to planning a novel, writing short stories, writing about place, a behind the scenes look at my short story collection and how I wrote my novels. I share my posts on social so if you follow me on Twitter (etc.) keep checking my profile for new stuff and get inspired, find more time to write, or think differently about the writing process. 

A Beginner's Guide to Writing

The Small Steps Writing Guides

All the Small Steps Writing Guides are based on two principles. 1) You can take any big project, goal or task and break it down into smaller and smaller steps until it becomes doable. 2) If you take small but specific actions towards your goals regularly enough, they'll have a snowball effect. That means that with help from the Guides you can start taking small steps towards your writing goals today.
