Starting a book is easy, but finishing? That’s the great battle. With so many things out there that are demanding our attention – i.e. Work, friends, social media, those little goblin-type people called “kids” – it’s difficult to find the time to get your ideas on paper – not to mention, the drive. Every writer knows and has experienced a failing drive to write. Writer’s block is an idea murderer but with true determination and some confidence, it can be overcome.
