When I was thinking of the title of this email, and the title for the podcast episode I’m going to talk about here, there were a GAZILLION options.


  • Why Imposter Syndrome is a Waste of Time.
  • The Difference Between Motivation and Inspiration.
  • The One Skill You Need To Get Comfortable With as a Writer.
  • What Sex and Writing Have in Common.

And the reason there are so many ideas bursting out of me, is credit to this week’s incredible podcast guest, Terri Trespicio. Anytime we get in conversation, we go in a number of powerful directions, because we’ve both worked with writers for ages—and we care deeply about helping you through this process.

What I first loved about Terri (and continue to love about her) is her ability to flip things we’ve been fed, on their head. (the rhyme is unintentional, but brings me joy.)

Look, she’s the gal that has over 7 MILLION views of her Tedx talk called Stop Searching for Your Passion. Her brilliance is in dissecting the counter viewpoint.

In this MUST LISTEN episode, we look at 3 main obstacles for writers: Imposter syndrome, waiting for inspiration to strike, and finding the “right time” to begin your book.

You will absolutely hear something you need to in this episode—and you’ll probably laugh a lot, too. I did.

Truly, don’t miss this episode.
