Drawing on years of experience delivering workshops, lectures, and articles, Headstrong Girl features Wilkins's collected advice on both living the life of a writer and telling great stories, including topics such as the importance of persistence, turning off social media, anchoring scenes for your audience, and creating an effective protagonist and supporting casts for your novel.
