Author System Alignment

a day-long workshop with becca syme

Every writer has roadblocks and freeways in our process. Things that hold us back/slow us down, and places that allow for freer, faster, easier driving along this road of author life. We will address both the blocks (productivity hacks/myths) and the freeways (subconscious processes that could ease your path—your Strengths as a writer) in this day-long workshop.
