Episode 21: Writing When Your Story Feels Scrambled

When Your Story Feels Scrambled

Have you started writing a book but you aren’t sure what the finished product is supposed to look like? It can feel hopeless, overwhelming, and like you should give up. The good news is, there is never a story that is too scrambled to figure out! Today, we are covering what to do when your story feels scrambled.


Sometimes we get a great idea for a book and start writing with no real outline. We get to a point where we look back at what we’ve written and it is all out of sorts. If you’ve been there, this episode is for you! We are covering how writing a book is like solving a Rubik’s Cube, my number one piece of advice when writing a novel, and what to do when life feels too scrambled to write.

More about The Prologue: helping authors craft a stronger story

Welcome to The Prologue, with author coach, Arielle Hadfield.


You’ve got an idea for a story. Now it’s time to get it on paper. The writing world can be a strange and scary place, but you don’t have to face it alone.


In this podcast, Arielle guides authors through all the steps of writing a book. This includes how to take a simple idea and transform it into an entire story with complete characters and a compelling plot, editing strategies, and mindfulness skills to help break through writer’s block, handle rejection, and find courage to step outside your comfort zone to get your story out of your head and into stores.


Arielle Hadfield began as an author. Soon she was able to combine her writing and editing skills with her background in mental health and life coaching to become the first of its kind author coach!


Tune in every Tuesday to learn how to craft a stronger story. With examples from books, movies, and music, and a fun, encouraging, and kind environment, Arielle will help you reach your goals, no matter how far-fetched they feel today.
