This is a great episode for a number of reasons...and not just the book editing and writing tips.
We talk about Demi’s journey – and I think it’s quite relevant in today’s climate. After moving to a small town, she had to pivot because there were no jobs in her chosen profession.
How she saw opportunity and went for it where she could just thrown in the towel, went home to her new husband and said ‘there’s no jobs here’.
Then we got into the meaty piece about the writing and editing process and it’s full of golden nuggets. We talked about
- Safe never starts and perfect never finishes – wise advice
- The need for an editor but not on your first draft
- How to keep yourself in motion and not stare at a blank page
- and much, much more.
