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.
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.
