Writing is tough, being an author 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.
No, we don’t mean cheerleaders as in pom-poms and mini skirts. We’re talking about that one (or more) person who’s always there for you, giving you the advice or guidance you need, and never letting you quit on yourself. You know, a cheerleader for writers. You can always tell which ones they are too because they have coffee or chocolate at the ready and a sympathetic ear but aren’t shy about giving you a quick boot in the rear.
Oh, wait. That’s just me.
Anyway, this week’s episode is about how to find your cheerleaders (or life anchors as Clark likes to call them), what kinds of cheerleaders are out there (and, newsflash, they aren’t all good!), and why you need them in the first place. Oh, and don’t forget to download your Cheerleader Checklist!
