Writing a novel can feel like a never-ending venture.
Let's change that.

This week Lu is ...

copy editing a literary fiction novel

Writing a novel can be a lonely occupation. Your friends and loved ones can cheer you on from the sidelines, but they don’t really know what you’re going through.

When you started your novel you were full of ideas and enthusiasm. You had a story you were burning to tell. You’re still burning to tell that story, but the writing process is harder than you thought. Self-doubt is creeping in. Can I really do this?

The answer is yes!

With my support you can write a novel you are proud of.
