The overall theme of the book is how to lead a life of purpose. That's been the driving question through most of my life and I hope that some insights which I have gathered in my journey also add value to others.

How has your self-help writing journey been thus far?
Thanks! Got it. Sounds good, and interesting. Yes, having a clear target audience is key.

My writing journey has been interesting, cathartic, and a little demoralizing. ; ) I recently shared a 200k-word+ draft of an experimental memoir (it uses fiction and fantasy elements) with close friends, family, and one astute beta-reader, and I've decided to re-write the whole thing. Just about to begin doing that any second now.
