Most People Miss It

If we want to be writers, we have to sit down and write. That’s such a simple truth, yet most people miss it.

Oh, we understand it on an intellectual level but we’re not living it. For some reason (Resistance), we complicate matters. We pile on layers of stuff that we don’t really need to become successful authors. (Is it really necessary to be active on every social media platform?)

What would happen if we stopped agonizing over all the extra stuff and instead, allowed ourselves to relax and enjoy the writing?

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.
