Fearless Finishing: Bringing Your Draft from Rough to Ready


Do you have unfinished manuscripts fattening your filing cabinet? Or a work-in-progress that you're struggling to complete? Many writers do, but if you don't finish what you start, you can't share your work with a wider audience, enjoy the fulfillment of seeing your story in print, and move on with excitement and optimism to your next creative project. Learn why the revision process can be so difficult and what you can do to balance doubt, fear, boredom and the enticement of other sparkling ideas in order to finally finish.
