In this section, we provide general writing and research guidance, so whether you're a beginner or seasoned writer, you're sure to find something useful!
Yogi Berra, one of baseball’s great Hall of Fame catchers, once said “You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there.” While improvisation will always play a role in the writing process, a good idea of where you’re going with your story can help you stay focused and on track to complete your manuscript.
It may sound paradoxical, but the best way to beat writers block is to stop thinking about writing. That’s right, if you can’t fathom how to write your book, or can just no longer string two coherent sentences together, don’t agonize for hours trying to force yourself to come up with an idea or some poetic prose. Get up, walk away and do something else.
