Hello, and welcome to another episode of the podcast. Today I want to ask you a few questions: Do you dream of writing but wonder if you have what it takes because you need an English or culinary degree? Do you want to elevate your writing and share it with others or tell people that you’re writing but find yourself comparing yourself to published writers? Do you want to start a writing routine but don’t know what to focus on to get going? If you answered YES to even one of these questions, I get it, and I’ve got you. So many of my students are plagued with these questions and concerns: qualifications, sharing their writing and written work, and the structuring of their writing life so that it fits all the other things we do in our life.
There are a few things about writing that I’ve never talked about or trained my students on, and that’s the inner work I did to address my qualifications to write (of which I have none), my sharing of my written work with others (which I did on my blog, in a newsletter, and then in a local newspaper), and finally the routine of writing on a regular basis amidst the hustle and bustle of raising a family and running a business. And that’s what we’re going to talk about on the podcast today. And if you want to learn more about how to Live Like a Writer, remember this isn’t taught in school. Learning how to Live Like a Writer can only be taught by other writers who are willing to share all the stuff behind the scenes that editors, agents, and publishers aren’t able to discuss unless they’ve written a book or two themselves. So, if you want to be a writer but find yourself wracked with worry about degrees, overwhelmed with a comparison with other writers, suffering from a lack of structure and direction, and unclear about where to start, the start of 2023 is the perfect time to get your writing life on track.
With that in mind, I’m offering a brand new training called Live Like a Writer. During this training, we are going to peek behind the scenes of my writing life so that you can get some traction in setting up your writing life. I know for me that writing has been the most amazing part of my self-growth journey. It’s stretched me in ways I couldn’t even imagine. It has caused me to pay up and show up in ways that didn’t seem possible, and it’s been the doorway to publishing and writing four cookbooks.
If you’re ready to elevate your writing life in 2023, I’d love for you to join me next week and learn about how to Live Like a Writer. You’ll never look at writing the same, ever again.
