How NY Times Bestselling Novelist Emma Straub Writes The Writer Files: Writing, Productivity, Creativity, and Neuroscience

    • Books

#PodcastersForJustice
New York Times bestselling author, Emma Straub, spoke to me about why everything in life is timing, how to write a book for yourself, time travel, and her latest "This Time Tomorrow."
Emma is the bestselling author of five novels — including All Adults Here, The Vacationers, Modern Lovers, and Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures — the short story collection Other People We Married. Her books have been published in 20 countries. 
Her latest, This Time Tomorrow, has been named One of the Most Anticipated Books of 2022 by Vogue, Oprah, Entertainment Weekly, Glamour, Good Housekeeping, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Reader’s Digest, Today, Parade, Thrillist, Pop Sugar, Lithub and more.
Described as "...a moving father-daughter story and a playful twist on the idea of time travel," author Michael Chabon called the book "...a beautifully made, elegant music box of a novel that sets in motion its clever clockwork of delight—then breaks your heart with its bittersweet, lingering song.”
Emma and her husband also own Books Are Magic, a popular independent bookstore in Brooklyn, New York. 
In this file Emma Straub and I discussed:

Why getting an MFA helped her slow down her writing

How she met everyone in publishing at an indie bookshop 

The unique perspective of Xennials

How to find confidence and pages while being off-balance 

Why she'd drink less Olde English if she could go back 

And a lot more!


Stay calm and write on ...
