    I've always wanted to write a book one day... Very helpful podcast for where to begin! Thank you. I just need more spare time!!!

    I know, finding that spare time is tough! That's why the process was so long for me. Carve it out, Ms. Zoe! You'll find it when the time is right. Take a writing vacation, sign up for a writing class, create an ongoing writing date with yourself at a nearby cafe--the options are endless my darling. I can't wait to see what you create!
