The site is currently in transition to a new format, so a lot of things will be changing around here. Please excuse the mess.
This site is all about Motivation, Inspiration, and Dedication required to write a novel. The techniques and free classes contained within can help you overcome writers block, manage your writing time, and most importantly, get you to finish that book.
Martin McConnell, author of Finish the Damn Book, maintains this site as a repository of writing tools at no cost to the visitor. Though the site is still under construction, new tools and resources will be coming soon. If you like, you can also check out the archives, which have some of the highest scoring pages from the former blog.
