Forms of self-therapy take many shapes. Writing falls inside the circle.

By Gayle Gross, Founder of Great Authors by 10 Day Book Club

Skinny dogs, tall dogs, short dogs. The shape IS all it is cracked up to be – NOT that important. Wish I could say the same for my own as I grab the ring around my waist from the occasional hot dogs I eat at ballgames.

Man’s best friend gives a person time and space to grow. They are like a plant that has a way of impeding on your lap. As long as you water and feed them they grow. Okay, maybe not totally true but if you add the last ingredient, sunshine, which includes loving to the best of your ability you are the master.

While determining next steps in life last year there were four winter months at a writing retreat with three dogs. The companionship and peace of mind made for amazing changes AND a great story.

Writing IS therapy. Truly the bestseller comes from within as the author listens and narrates.

We know the process after writing is tenuous. Months of months of editing and rewrites. Every time you look at the manuscript you see a new way to write something. Then, you get up the nerve to let someone else read it and guess what? Revisions and rewrites.

If the writing process takes too long it begins over. The way technology is running by we barely have time to throw water into the wind. Being sprinkled with a refreshing splash requires getting into the race.

Let us help. 10 Day Book Club’s interactive approach brings authors closer to publishing. You will get your writing in the hands of your peers and potential readers for feedback and enhancement.
