Working the flame to forge your novel…

“You can’t edit a blank page,” but how do you fill that page in the first place? Perfectionism, self-doubt and laundry are real-life hurdles standing between you and your first draft.

Book Forge helps you navigate these obstacles and keep the coals of your creativity hot so you can hammer out words and forge your first draft.

Writing is not just a skill, its also a habit

To make progress, you have to set realistic goals and deadlines for yourself, and stick to them.

To finish your novel, you need to overcome your fears and doubts, and learn from your mistakes. 

You may not have a lot of time to spare so you need to make the most of the time you have.

But doing all that on your own can be hard. That’s why having a mentor and a community can make a huge difference.

The Team

Deanne and Hazel make a great team. The yin to the yang. Fred to Ginger. Shrek to Donkey (though they’re not saying which is which).

Together, Hazel and Deanne have created Book Forge, a fellowship group that helps writers take back control of their own story, learn to believe in themselves, and sit in the chair to write the novel.
