Our will gives us the ability to focus. It’s what allows us to concentrate.

This is an area that writers tend to struggle with. Not because we can’t develop our ability to concentrate, but because so many ideas pop into our heads when we’re writing that we get distracted.

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.
