Conquer Overwhelm Like a Pro

Running a business is a lot of work. Writing a novel is a lot of work. It’s no wonder so many writers feel overwhelmed. On any given day, there’s a hundred things demanding our attention. Our todo list is pages long. It’s paralyzing.

The way out of it is to remember that our first priority – always – is to create new work. Before we check our email, or twitter, or consult the list of things that need doing, we write. We’re pros. That’s what pros do.

About the author 

Valerie Francis

Valerie Francis is a bestselling author, literary editor, and podcaster with a passion for stories by, for and about women.

Each month, Valerie recommends books from literature’s best female authors. Selections come from every genre because women write, and read, in every genre. The Women’s Fiction category offers up some terrific novels, but these days there’s a strong female presence in thriller, horror, crime, and other genres traditionally dominated by male writers. No matter what the publishing companies may think, in the 21st Century, Women’s Fiction is whatever we want it to be.
