    Writing the Shadow with Joanna Penn

    Writing the Shadow with Joanna Penn

    Welcome back to Alchemy for Authors!

    In this week’s episode I interview award-winning podcaster, creative entrepreneur, and bestselling author, Joanna Penn, about her wonderful new book, Writing the Shadow: Turn Your Inner Darkness into Words. Joanna gives advice on how to recognize your Shadow Self and how we can use it to not only become better writers, but also better people. We discuss why AI is no competition for you showing up and being vulnerable on the page, what it's like to be an intuitive discovery writer, and why there's nothing wrong with binge writing. We also discuss the role of synchronicity in writing a book, and why planning your author career is often about lifestyle design.

    If you're ready to delve into the dark, confront your shadows, and are willing to use your vulnerability to really connect with your readers, then it’s time to let your dark horse run. Grab a drink, find a comfy chair, sit back and enjoy the show!
