Obstacles to Your Success: What They Are and How to Overcome Them

You can almost certainly name your obstacle, but thinking of ways to overcome it is much harder than it sounds. In this workshop, you’ll meet fifteen obstacles that writers face when trying to write their stories. You’ll also receive concrete methods to burst through each obstacle and continue on your way to your success.
