To finish the marathon of writing a long book, more than talent, more than free time, more than anything, in fact, a writer needs mental toughness to avoid the myriad distractions, damaging self-talk, frustrations, and sometimes just plain old boredom along the way. C.M. Mayo, a long-time Writers Center workshop leader and author of several books, including a deeply researched travel memoir (Miraculous Air), rand, most recently, an epic historical novel based on the true story (and many years of original archival research)— The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire—offers tips, tricks and more to inspire you to start, stay with, and finish your book.
