Make an outline, it will help. An outline will allow you to jump around and work on those areas that interest you at that moment.

 

If you go off on a tangent, well... tangents aren't really tangents. Allow your writing to go where it may. You'll fit it in later...

 

Or you won't.

 

Let it go, don't outline in a very strict way. Let your thoughts wander and fit them back into the book later.

 

It doesn't matter whether you want to write an e-book, paperback, or an audio book; James recommends you do all three. You'll look much more professional.

Anxiety about dealing with future problems has two problems. It doesn't solve tomorrow's problems and it does drain your energy of right now.

 

Thinking about the future is important, but you can choose whether to worry about your problems or solve them now.

 

That decision is up to you. Worry and anxiety will not solve your problems.

 

 

Do the best things you can right now.

James and Claudia talk about a real-life fight that they've recently had and walk you through how they dealt with it.

 

Being aware that you're angry is extremely important. 

 

 

Emotions go in cycles. You can discuss the disagreement at the "peak" of it or you can wait for this anger cycle to wane. You still may be just as mad, but you'll be more rational
