Where are You in the Writing Journey? Book Quiz
by Lisa Tener
As exciting as it is to dream about being a published author, actually writing a book can feel overwhelming at times. Those feelings may even force you to put your book off to the side until you can figure out your next step, or get more support, or get more clarity.
After running into so many potential authors who wonder if they can really make it happen—write and publish their dream book—I’ve created The BOOK QUIZ to help you assess exactly where you are in the book writing journey and what you most need to move forward.
Once you take the quiz, I’ll provide personalized feedback that will give you clarity on what to do next based on your unique results.
The quiz applies what I’ve learned from working with thousands of authors over a decade to help you assess where you stand with the three crucial components to getting published—commitment, expertise and your plan.
The goal of The Book Quiz is simple—to give you an outside perspective on where you are in your book writing journey and help you identify what steps to take next to break through those challenges and write the book you’ve always wanted to write.

P.S. If you know anyone else who could benefit from The Book Quiz, please share it with them—I’m hopeful this resource will help thousands of would-be authors take the next step in their journey to publishing their book.
Barbara’s note: This quiz is lots of fun! Try it and let me know your feedback.
“Newer Every Day”
The famous poet Emily Dickinson, who’s birthday is December 10th, the day before mine, wrote:
We turn not older with years but newer every day.
I love and embrace this! And I love and appreciate everyone who sent me b-day greetings.
I feel truly blessed to live an abundant life filled with caring, thoughtful people. Many thanks!
What are your blessings? I’d love to hear them!
