Meet Your Writing Life Coach and Mentor

If you want to take your writing to the next level, buy this book...now! ―Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sperry, The Book Doctors and authors of The Essential Guide to Getting Your Book Published

#1 Bestseller in Writing, Research & Publishing Guides

Imagine having your own personal writing life coach and mentor―someone encouraging yet honest, supportive yet empowering, who can help you set and achieve your goals, turn your moments of doubt and fear into sources of strength, and discover what you're truly capable of when you're at your best.

A motivational book for anyone dealing with writer's block or other writing obstacles. Whether you're a first-time writer with a brand-new project or a seasoned pro, Kendra Levin's book will help you do the best writing of your life―and live your best life while doing it.

A motivational self-care book for writing aficionados. Using a fresh new approach to Joseph Campbell's archetypal The Hero's Journey, Levin reveals how to be a hero in the narrative of your own process. She weaves together wisdom drawn from her years as a life coach for writers and an editor at the world's biggest publishing house with behind-the-scenes stories from a panoply of best-selling authors and career entertainers.

With over thirty exercises designed to help you reinvent your creative process from the inside out, learn how to:

  • Identify your biggest challenges and render them powerless
  • Start a project that you love―and stick with it
  • Design a structure for writing regularly

Readers of self-help books and personal development books for writers and creatives like Story Genius, The Emotional Craft of Fiction, The Artist's Way, Bird by Bird, or Big Magic will be inspired and encouraged by The Hero is You.
