The writing buddy everyone needs.

Nicole is the writing buddy everyone needs regardless of what they write.
She is the quiet voice that encourages you to just get on with your writing while giving you tips to find friends in the writing community.
There is no pressure, no judgement, and no one way to do things.
Thank you Nicole for being my writing buddy and putting out a podcast every week!

Listen Up!

You won't find a more engaging, honest, & empathetic podcast focused on writing than Stop Writing Alone. In the emerging & rapidly growing gig economy this podcast tackles the silent pain rarely spoken about publicly - isolation from human contact. Of course, there is plently of instruction & learning to be had about the craft of writing as the host of the show, Nicole Rivera, speaks from her experience & knowledge on the subject, but the beauty of this show is the connection with other souls on a similar journey. I highly recommend you give it a listen!!
