Be A NovelistHi There~~

I’m Norma Jean Lutz.  I’m a lifelong career author, workshop instructor, and writing coach.

Through the years I have been privileged to help hundreds of writers and wannabe writers.
Now here at Be A Novelist you can receive support, education, and encouragement with regard to your writing.

I know writers.  I know novelists.  They’re some of my favorite people. They’re my “tribe,” if you will. I understand; I relate; and I empathize.  But I don’t coddle.

It’s time for you to get honest!  What are the road blocks that are slowing down, or even stopping, your novel writing process?  It’s time (and probably past time) to find those road blocks, identify them; then get those little demons out of the way!

Then no excuses! It’s time to Be A Novelist!


Some of you reading this have been struggling with your writing for many years. This may be the perfect time for you to receive the support and guidance of a writing coach. FREE initial consultation. All the details are HERE.
