Chapter 1 Episode 1 You Are Not Alone

April 1, 2017

Writing is tough, being an author is tougher. Here at Alive and Writing, we take a closer look at all the challenges we all face as authors, including issues with mental health, time management, professionalism, and more.

Alive and Writing Chapter 1 Episode 1 You Are Not Alone

Today’s episode is all about a simple but powerful truth: you are not alone. It doesn’t matter if you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, confusion, book sales, or positive reviews. Good or bad, someone, somewhere has had or is having the same experience as you.

Let’s explore that together.

  1. Great podcast! I also was able to find a great group through NaNoWriMo here in Athens, Greece. It’s so cool that you all met that way. I can’t WAIT until you do the marketing episode. I’m struggling so hard with that right now. Thanks for your collective work on this show. I appreciate it!

      Thanks, Kristin! It’s great to hear that you enjoyed our podcast. Marketing is something that’s definitely on our to-do list, as it is a subject a lot of authors struggle with. Keep on listening!
