Writing is tough, being a writer is tougher. Here at Alive and Writing, we take a closer look at all the challenges you will face as an author including issues with mental health, time management, professionalism, and more.
Shall we compare thee to a summer’s day? Not in this episode, unfortunately (Clark won’t let us). Instead, we’ll discuss the ups and downs of comparing our writing to others, when it’s okay and making your own comparison goals. April also makes up new words that will soon be in the dictionary (we just know it!).
As a forewarning, we had to redo the opener three times. You get what you get. – The Management
