Writing A Book: My Experience And Lessons Learned

Learn How The Creative Process Works And Why It’s Important To Commit

This is episode 77 and it’s about learning how the creative writing process works, and doesn't. Also why it's essential to commit to a passion project, and to remember that there are consequences for our actions, and inactions.

Have you written a book? If so, then you know just how hard it can be. If you haven’t, then in this episode you’ll learn about some of the challenges that can confront an author when they commit to the process.

I’m writing a book and the experience is full spectrum, and as you listen to this episode, I think you’ll find some solutions that will assist you in your whatever creative process you’d love to share with the world.
