How do you determine the line between authentically sharing your story vs. writing for therapy? How do you blend episodes from your life that might help others with aspects that might hurt people you love? I talk about these issues and more with Roz Morris today.
In the introduction, I share my lessons learned from 6 years as an author-entrepreneur and also my timeline from writing the first book to making multi-six-figures. I mention the Isle of Wight Challenge, How to Create Anything with Orna Ross, 20BooksLondon.com, Sci-Fi and Fantasy Marketing Podcast about 12 ways to keep your backlist selling and maintain a steady income.
Today's show is sponsored by my own How to Write a Novel course, which I created while writing End of Days, so you get a behind the scenes look at how the book came together. One course member, Leigh Anderson said, “This course is exactly what I was looking for. I now feel well on my way to writing and completing my first draft. It has been a real breakthrough for me.” Check it out at www.TheCreativePenn.com/writenovel
