Show Notes


Shout out


I love these podcasts. They keep me inspired to write and I have learned a lot about the writing processes of others. They are especially valuable when it's difficult to write because I can still attain a sense of achievement by listening to them.

The Facebook group is a daily prompt to remember who I am – a writer. I also enjoy your rapport with each other. It makes me smile.

Thank you, Al and Val.
