About The Writing Cycle

Home / About The Writing Cycle

I understand the writer’s dilemma:

  • Workshops teach you how to take stories apart, but rarely offer strategies for structuring novels.
  • The publishing industry emphasizes pitches and proposals, yet demonstrates minimal understanding of the creative process.
  • Self-publishing routes offer authors more options, yet fluctuate widely in terms of editorial guidance . . . and quality.

I know. Over the years, I’ve worked in each of these capacities.
