Failure To Launch

Have you ever spent a year or two or 10 writing a book, and then let it sit on your hard drive or in your drawer without ever sending it out? Have you ever gotten halfway through a book and then got bored or frustrated and started another? Do you routinely choose not to pitch at a conference, even though you’ve finished four novels? If so, you’re not alone. Many writers love to write but struggle to finish or submit their work. In this session, William Kenower, author of Everyone Has What It Takes: A Writer’s Guide to the End of Self-Doubt, offers advice and exercises to help writers of all genres and experience levels get out of their own way and share their work.
