Internal Journey of a
The simple path to writing your novel
You’ve spent days, weeks, months—maybe even years—telling yourself you’d write that novel and you STILL haven’t done it.
You want to write your novel to share your story and inspire readers that what's possible for your characters, is possible for them too. You want to stand out, making a big impact in the lives of others by connecting with them at a deep, emotional level that goes beyond this world.
But more than anything, you just want to stop spinning your wheels in overwhelm and doubt when it comes to figuring this novel-writing thing out!
After writing three novels, I know that it takes more than using the endless methods or tools available to write your story. It takes courage to look deep within yourself and find the story that only you can tell.
I've spent countless hours, days, weeks, and years toiling over the idea of writing a novel, but never actually doing it, and I know:
You've had the idea to write your novel for quite some time, but have yet to make it a priority.
You've tried searching for the answers of "how to" write your novel, both online and from others who have gone before you, and only found more overwhelm.
The mere idea of putting all of your thoughts into a structure, and long-form, makes you want to pull your hair out.
When you finally decide to sit down and give this "novel writing thing" a try, nothing comes to you and you stare at the blank page before giving up.
With each day that passes, the urge to write your novel gets stronger, but you have no idea what to do about it, so you submit to the insanity of the story running in the background of your daily life.
If this sounds like the struggles you've faced as an aspiring author, you're in the right place.
This is, in fact, where everyone who aspires to write a novel begins. As a previous aspiring writer, I get it.
There's so much information out there telling you "how-to" write your novel, and quite frankly, it's overwhelming and defeating. You can spend weeks or months looking for what will "work for you" without ever writing a word. Doubt creeps in, and you begin to believe that little voice that tells you you're not good enough to be an author.
But pretending that you don't have a desire to write a book, ignoring the fact that you need help to do so, will only propel you further away from the rest of your dreams and desires.
The truth is, when you ignore one piece of your "purpose puzzle", you set yourself back in all other areas too. And when you deny that writing a novel is part of your purpose, you simply cannot feel fulfilled in life.
Because you know, deep down, that if you don't write this novel, you will regret it.
I'm Alysia Seymour, Fiction Author & Story Guide, and I work with aspiring authors like you, who want to write their novel using a simple approach, so you can find the story you most want, and NEED to tell, and to actually sit down and write your novel without feeling like you're being pulled in a million directions.
You and I both know that your current state isn't conducive to writing a novel. If it was, you've have done it a long time ago!
You've already challenged yourself many times to start writing your novel, and get past these thoughts and feelings that keep you stuck.
But despite your best intentions, you've found that the novel keeps getting pushed to the back burner of your priorities, disregarding it as "not important right now", or "something you'll do at a later time"...only that time never comes.
So what's missing?
There are two answers: Accountability & Focusing Within.
When you know that you'll be held accountable for writing your novel, you'll be committed to making it a priority and following through with what needs to be done.
And when you work from the inside out, you begin to release all the thoughts and feelings that kept stopping you before, connect to the big WHY of your novel, and finally get it written.
Having a story to offer your readers, or "readers-to-be", that will inspire them through deep, emotional storytelling, to beleive in themselves through experiencing your characters' journeys alongside them.
Feeling confident and centered with new clarity on your personal journey, how far you've come, and how much you really have to offer as an author, and as a human being!
How much easier it will be from this new perspective to write more novels in the future.
Feeling free and empowered, knowing that you've finally answered the call of your purpose to write your novel.
But, this is only possible when you invest in writing your novel the same way that you invest in your health or family.

I created Internal Journey of a Novelist for aspiring authors like you, who haven't found the guidance you've been looking for when it comes to writing your novel.
As a writer at heart, I recognize the importance of getting your novel from your head to paper in order to feel fulfilled and satisfied.
I knew that to feel like an accomplished writer, I needed to take consistent inward action, rather than getting bogged down by everyone else's opinions of how I should write my novel.
This program is different from any other writing program out there. I've specifically designed this program to take you on an emotional journey by having you rewrite the pivotal moments from your own life through a fictional lens.
You won't have to waste time researching endless ways to write your novel because all of the answers you need will come from within you! I've used the fictional lens method for all of my books, and for my clients, and the results, clarity, and impact are astounding.
By the time our work together is done, not only will you have a complete draft of your novel written, but you'll see how transformative it is to invest in a simple approach to write your novel, just as you would invest in your own health.
I've designed this program so you can get access to all the guidance, accountability, and insight you need to write your novel.
You won't need to invest in another writing program ever again. You won't need to stay stuck in overwhelm and self-doubt, continually putting your novel on the back burner.
And you won't have to spend precious time researching how to write your novel because all the answers you need will simply come from within you!
To guarantee that I provide the level of high-touch support required to help you write your novel and create lasting transformation, I only work with a limited number of authors at any one time.
