Great for any creative

So cool to hear about the process “behind the pages” of writing and a writers journey. My hubs and I listened on our way to work, and agreed that while we don’t consider ourselves writers it was still an enjoyable listen and could be helpful and useful for any creative. Thanks ladies! I wanna read Hem now.
