This very readable book is like having a conversation with Colleen as she guides the reader through various effective journaling exercises to help writers understand their motivations, identify and build on their strengths, discover their heroes, create their author theme, and build their platform. Colleen acts as part psychologist/part coach to help writers refine and realize their goals.
If you're a writer who's feeling discouraged, demoralized, and on the verge of giving up, this book is an answer to an SOS. I've tuned in to various free webinars that purport to show authors the way to achieve success, and much of the time the suggestions are too broad and the whole purpose is to sell a product that purports to be "the answer." Colleen provides common-sense, specific, and real-world advice, and it's authentic because she's lived it.
If you're willing to put in the work of reading the book and completing the exercises, Colleen will help you figure out your path to having a writing career. It may not be the one you've fantasized about, but it's certain to be a more realistic one that suits your needs, your lifestyle, your talents, and your abilities.
