Worth listening to several times over

Pamela and Jeff have been more than helpful with their vulnerability and wisdom for first-timers like me. I’ve gone back to episodes for repeat listening. I’m going through my process of writing & publishing my first book. I recently re-listened to the one on structure and got more clarity. Many times I’ve said, “Oh, yes. Now I remember. . .” and it’s moved me forward. This podcast is a staple on my phone even after my book is launched. Thanks Pam & Jeff. What a gift!
