Welcome Donna Norman-Carbone to The TufFish Show, a place to help writers and aspiring authors get out of their own way to leave a legacy by telling the stories they want to share through writing their own books and confidently sharing them with others. The writing process can be tough and the business side can feel scary, but TufFish makes both feel smoother and achievable. 

When you think about what draws you into a book, a strong and enticing chapter one is key, yet not easily done on the first pass. Donna shares the process she went through to get to this coveted first chapter status including how she went from five point of views to one and why. Another piece to the puzzle is knowing when it’s done, and Donna shares some insights to help here too.
