Consistently awesome and relatable
I’ve been listening to this podcast for a couple years now and thought it was about time I left a review…Sarah - you are awesome my friend!!! I don’t know you, but I feel like your podcast speaks directly to me and we’ve become friends lol. You are so natural to listen to, it never feels like you are reading form a script, rather sharing from your heart. Any newbie writers, current authors or creators out there - I highly recommend this podcast!
Thank you so much for this podcast!!!
A great motivation to write
I discovered this podcast last year and devoured it, binge listening to all episodes in only a few weeks. It (together with another writing podcast) got me motivated to finally start writing. I’d been having the urge for about 20 years-ish, and had a few failed attempts (as in: start writing something but stop after the first page). This time though. I haven’t stopped since I started and it’s become a massive part of my life now. I will always thanks Sarah for this, even if we don’t know each other personally.
I didn't think it was possible...
It was sometime ago when drinking for me had become more important than writing. Not only does Sarah Werner have an upbeat attitude that inspired me to pick up the pen again, but she also has advice and sympathies for all writers, from the aspiring, best selling novelist right down to the scribbler who often wonders if his for-my-eyes-only scrawl is worth it at all. uy7j
I would write more, but there is a cat on my keyboard.
Just listen to it and write some.
