What does it mean to "live the writing life?"

There are a lot of cool things about being a writer, but it's also not easy or as glamorous as you might think. If you are passionate about becoming a writer, you have to be willing to put in the work. It's fulfilling and fun sometimes, but other times it's hard and you may not feel like dealing with it. 

For those times when it's harder, check out my encouragement videos! If you need someone to believe in you, well, I do! And I've got several videos saying so! I know it can be rough--I've been there! And I'd so love to make your writing journey a little more doable!

You can also find tips for the writing process itself on my channel, as well as info from my experience publishing independently.

Just for funzies, I've got some videos on animals in fiction. If you have any animal characters in your stories, whether invented sentient beasts or a regular non-talking cat, there's lots of interesting info in these videos! Check out my About page for more info on my background in animal care.
