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.

Enjoyable and Edifying

I found the 'Write Now' podcast a few weeks ago purely by chance and I have now finished listening to almost the entire archive of shows. I have thoroughly enjoyed every single one.

Sarah is a very inspirational speaker. She offers up just what she promises - inspiration and hope - in a friendly, convivial way. I really like Sarah's personality and infectious laugh. I always finish her podcasts feeling better, more hopeful, more energized than when I started.

This is *the* podcast for aspiring writers who are looking for uplifting encouragement and advice on how to strike the work, life, writing balance.
