Have you ever wanted to write a book?

The process of writing and publishing is something I get asked about a LOT, so today I thought I’d pull back the curtains on what it *really* takes to get that big beautiful book idea out of your head, onto paper, and out into the world.

Tune into this episode to learn why creativity is NOT a linear process, how to deal with Imposter Syndrome, why self-care can make or break your writing journey, why it takes a village to bring a book to life, how to make peace with the creative process, and the single best piece of writing advice I’ve ever heard.

You’ll walk away with a heap of highly actionable tips, tricks, and suggestions that you can use in your own writing projects, or when you’re making ANY sort of art — whether it’s music, painting, whatever. 

So if you’re in need of a massive dose of creative inspiration (and some awesome behind-the-scenes insights) then press play now… this one’s for you!

In this episode we chat about:

  • Shedding light on the less talked about aspects of writing a book (1:43)
