Here's the confusion I see every day in my inbox
I constantly receive emails from newbie (and not so newbie) writers who ask the same questions over and over, such as:
“Can you help me, I’m confused and overwhelmed, I don’t know where to start?”
“I took xyz course that cost me a couple of thousand dollars but I'm stuck. I don't even know how to get clients!
Or, how about this actual case:
“I’ve spent over 700 hours creating a writer’s website and I’m not sure if it’s any good. Could you take a look?”
(I’ve since mentored this writer and he has become a good friend).
