A Writer’s Journey is not a textbook. It is a casual sharing about creative writing, what it means to be a published writer, the challenges a writer faces in his/her writing – the ups and downs of a writer’s journey.

It begins with Gina Yap Lai Yoong discovering her love of writing, the procrastination and fears that almost paralysed her pursuitto be a published writer, and how she tackled those challenges to be a bestseller novelist in Malaysia.

In this book, she tells you how she wrote her first novel, who are the best writing teachers, and her own ingenious approaches to overcoming writing challenges. Some of the issues she addressed include the paralyzing writer’s block, qualifications to be a writer, writing a novel in 30 days as well as how to get your writings published.

Through A Writer’s Journey, you will find out what it means and how it is to be a published writer.

About the author: For more than ten years now, Gina Yap Lai Yoong has been a mentor of sorts for local writers who intend to get published. But she is not your ordinary writing coach and depending on your commitment to your craft, she can be a miraculous guiding angel or a badgering nightmare. Over the past few years, she has journeyed with many aspiring and emerging writers – encouraging them to write books they have always wanted to write. Gina is also an author of five published novels.
