Turning Readers Into Writers

Emma Dhesi

Hi, I'm Emma – your host of the Turning Readers Into Writers podcast.

Have you ever asked yourself, "How can I find the time to write when I am already so busy? How can I write my first novel when I have no confidence in my writing? How do I even write a book, anyway?"

Then you're in the right place!

Beginner writers dream of finishing their first novel and either getting an agent or publishing independently. Either way, they have a vision of holding their book in their hands and seeing it for sale in a bookshop or online. But they are totally overwhelmed with the thought of writing so many words and crafting an engaging story with characters their readers care about.

In this podcast I take you right back to basics and look at all the ways you can find time to write and build your confidence. Along the way we'll delve into the practical elements of story structure and writing great characters, as well as the tools and techniques you can use to keep yourself motivated when the going gets tough.

With my 3 Step approach (schedule, write, analyse), I deliver content to help you say no to procrastination and yes to creation. I have turned my own writing from snippets on my computer to fully formed, published novels that are out there in the world for readers to enjoy. Let me show you how to do the same.

Remember, you don't need to know it all you just need to get started. Join me every Thursday for new episodes on how you can go from Reader to Writer.
