Under Construction

Writing a novel (or any book) can be an exciting experience. And a daunting one. Whether your manuscript starts out as just a small idea that eventually evolves into a book, or whether it's laid out from day one as an epic series, there is both logic and emotion involved.


This guide was built using Rachel's own writing journey. In it, she shares her unique perspectives on the emotional and technical aspects of creating a book, in the hopes of encouraging other writers who are just beginning their own adventures.
