The Writer's Crucible provides a map for navigating the turbulent, emotional waters of a creative life. It does so by helping writers understand the psychology of vulnerability. Perhaps the most common vulnerability we face is the persistent sense of not being good enough. This troubling insecurity is often present in even the most successful writer, who, despite success, is subject to episodes of self-doubt that undermine creativity. To help authors manage this core experience, The Writer's Crucible offers an in-depth exploration of the psychological underpinnings governing the internal narrative, "I am not enough." That knowledge enables readers to begin undoing emotional constrictions and connect with an inner source of spiritual nourishment, allowing creative energies to move with greater freedom.

The Writer's Crucible is not a book that tells you how to write--it is one that shows you how to be a writer.
