We hear from one of our listeners today who is having trouble beginning her second book after she’s finished her first and finds herself in the querying stage. A tough place to be! But lots of writers have gone through it. We’ve got some suggestions for her (as well as for you) about how to dive into the messiness of a new project, drop expectations, and avoid focusing on the end point. Authors Christine Murphy (Notes on Surviving the Fire), Kasey LeBlanc (Flyboy), and Aaron Hamburger (Hotel Cuba) help us out.

Watch a recording of our live webinar here. The audio/video version is available for one week. Missed it? Check out the podcast version above or on your favorite podcast platform.
