So inspiring

This podcast got me thinking about so many different aspects of my writing. It also made me feel part of a creative community, which I love!

LOVE this podcast!

This is one of my absolute favourite podcasts. It's fun, funny and really comforting to hear two authors share their struggles/tips for success as new (or transitioning) full-time authors. It feels like a chat with friends. New episodes can't come soon enough for me!
