This is an excellent series to listen to if you are a writer who has been struggling to get that first book finished. It might help you see that you’re not the only one who has suffered and struggled. It’s tough and it’s a lot of work, and sometimes it takes a lot of effort to overcome the things that prevent you from finishing that book. (And you can see, in the 4+ years that these episodes span, I found virtually every excuse in the book)
