    To Write or Not to Write- Authorship as a Physician with Dr. John Lawrence

    To Write or Not to Write- Authorship as a Physician with Dr. John Lawrence

    Join your host Andrew Tisser with his guest Dr. John Lawrence, as they speak on the journey, challenges, and motivations of a doctor-turned-author. While John believes clinical medicine isn't for everyone, he doesn't deny how it opens doors to many venues. And the case is true from how being a doctor opened his door to becoming the author of Amazon's #1 Best Seller in Medical Education & Training, PLAYING DOCTOR - Part One: Medical School: Stumbling Through With Amnesia. Here, he shares his thoughts on physicians exploring authorship, his tips and advice to first-time writers on expression, finding stories, and entering TV/film writing, and an exercise that can help you write better.
    In this episode you will learn:
    ·       Dr. John Lawrence – a doctor outside of medicine and inside creativity
    ·       About his book, Playing Doctor
    ·       The challenges of writing a book and how to fight it
    ·       What's the first thing you need to get clear with before writing?
    ·       The Morning Pages Exercise for Writers
    About Dr. John Lawrence:
    John Lawrence was born in New York, grew up in England, and attended Georgetown University, where he told his career advisor that the only thing he did not want to be was a doctor. He subsequently survived medical school and residency training in Utah.
    John was not the typical medical student, sneaking out of the hospital whilst on-call to audition for television shows, writing film scripts (The Cyclist, available on Amazon!), and working to overcome his imposter syndrome.
    John's varied non-medical resume includes river rafting guide, ski race coach, bagel baker, screenwriter, film director, and expedition doctor climbing Kilimanjaro with Olympic Hall of Fame athlete Chris Waddell.
