In episode 295, I chat with author and writer Beth Barany. You'll hear her talk about why she wanted to be a writer and how creativity was fostered in her home as a child.
She talks about her rejections as a writer including not getting into journalism school and how it pushed her to commit no matter what to write a novel. Beth discusses how she dealt with rejection and how she transitioned into writing fiction, how she makes a living teaching writing and why being a novelist helps her be a better teacher, writer and person. She also talks about the top things writers struggle with and how she coaches them to build more confidence and creativity for their writing, what makes a great story, why it matters and more.
