Humans make sense of the world through story. We can’t help it. It’s the way our brains are wired.

We use stories to teach our children. We read books for entertainment, taking a walk in someone else’s shoes from the safety of our living rooms. We read to gain perspective, find comfort, discover something new, revisit something old.

Books build bridges because story is the thing that connects us as human beings.

But here’s the deal: books aren’t born in a vacuum; they’re born with support, patience and continual exploration. Books are born in community, and that’s a beautiful thing.

My name is Nita, and I’m an Author Accelerator certified book coach. I’m part of the community that helps fiction writers get their stories out of their heads and onto the page for readers to enjoy.

The world needs the book you’re dying to write. What’s your story?
