How does the working writer get it done? Wrangling a fickle muse to meet a deadline—or just to get rid of that looming blank page—is a life-skill for everyone who wants to get serious about their writing. Multi-published author Allie Pleiter shares the nuts and bolts of how to manage your muse, set goals and deadlines, tackle the process of professional creativity, and more. With a useful mix of the practical, the inspirational, and the nitty-gritty real life of it all, Allie Pleiter gives aspiring or working writers the tools they need to make the magic happen.
An avid knitter, BBC Television geek and French macaron enthusiast, Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and non-fiction. The enthusiastic, untidy and empty-nested mother of two, Allie spends her days writing books, buying yarn, nudging texts to her far-away children, and finding new ways to avoid housework. Allie hails from Connecticut, moved to the midwest to attend Northwestern University, and currently lives outside Chicago, Illinois. The “dare from a friend” to begin writing has produced two parenting books, twenty novels including a RITA nominee and a Readers Crown winner, and various national speaking engagements on faith, women’s issues, and writing.
