I found UNSTUCK to be very enjoyable, on top of being astute, and above all, useful. The playfulness in it, and Glancy’s personal voice, undoubtedly make it all the more readable and therapeutic for any struggling writer — especially for its target reader, the college applicant.

Since my newest book UNSTUCK: How to Break Through Writer’s Block, Find Your Voice and Get into the College of Your Dreams came out a few months ago, people have been asking me to speak about what I do best, how I think about writing, and what I consider the secret to my success in getting kids into all the top colleges in the country — the HONEST way!
It’s been an amazing journey looking into myself to answer the questions asked of me and to find ways to articulate the vision behind the practice — the goals and ideas underlying what I do every day to help students realize their dreams.
Recently, Elephant Journal asked me to speak about this very thing.
Here’s an excerpt from my article in Elephant Journal:
Writing requires the suspension of both fear and disbelief. Is what I’m saying true? Is it good? Where am I getting these ideas and how am I producing words? I’m on a roll. Can I keep going?
These thoughts will deflate even the loftiest among us (pun intended 😉
Suspended, held up by the invisible force of . . . imagination, spirit, air . . . that is the place from which, I have found, the best writing comes.
So how do you get there?
I would be happy to show you! Click here to book a session and get started on one of the most important journeys of your life.
I’m enrolling students now for the 2020 academic year.
It’s wise to start early and lay a foundation for the years ahead. It’s also very important to choose schools to which you want to apply and work backwards from there to figure out what you would need to do to get in. Also, applications for summer programs are due in the next few months. I have an almost 100% success rate helping students get into summer programs.
