The path to stronger writing happens a step at a time.
There’s a moment in writing when we know our work is good, but not great, and we’re not sure how to get it there. We’re doing everything right, our beta readers love the book, but we just can’t quite boost the writing high enough to land that agent, get that publishing deal, or sell the amount books we want to.
This is a frustrating place to be.
It can make us doubt our skill, and worry we don’t have what it takes to be a writer. It can make us doubt our novels and wonder if the idea is viable. It can make us doubt our dreams.
The good news is, it might only take a few small changes to nudge the writing to the next level.
