HOW To Finish Your Damn Book

Catherine makes some good points here if your writing is in a funk as mine is at the moment. ~Elle


At the beginning of this year I wrote a post for that treasure trove of writing and publishing information,, about why you should finish your damn book. You can read that post here. It proved really popular.
