I remember being amazed when a Bookwifery client told me that the process of writing her book opened her up to the possibility of contacting a family member with whom she'd not been in contact for years. Writing the book had created an opening that wasn't there before. It changed something in her.
That's one thing I love about this process. You work to shape the book, yes. But the book also shapes you.
You are being formed in new ways as you write this book, writer. How have you already seen this happen?
