L. R. Trovillion presents:

But I’m Not Really A Writer: Overcoming the Negativity of Imposter Syndrome to Become a More Productive, Creative, and Authentic Writer! 

Do you struggle with your identity as an author because you haven’t published with The Big Five or hit a Best Seller List? Do harsh reviews or negative critiques send you into a depressive tailspin, blocking your creativity or productivity? You’re not alone!

Welcome to the writer’s life. Come learn how to deal with these soul crushing problems, embrace your true voice, and thrive as a a writer.

L. R. Trovillion earned a degree in Russian Language and Literature and has found work at various times of her life as a translator, teacher, reporter, editor, groom and stall cleaner. Nowadays, she makes her home in Maryland on a small horse farm, which she shares with her husband, daughter, and an assortment of four-legged creatures who really run the place. The story in her award-winning debut novel, False Gods, continues in the next book of the Maryland Equestrian Novel Series—Horse Gods, due out in 2019. Other work has appeared in Baltimoremagazine, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and various poetry anthologies. When not writing, she’s usually thinking about writing—and as always, is inspired by her equine teachers.
