There was nothing left. I would sit there and I was forcing it, and I was … just dry tank, wheels off, running on the hubs, scraping the concrete, sparks flying, just trying to cross the finish line.
In this episode, we take a step back to examine the question of what happens when doing more, working harder, sleeping less and optimizing things stops getting your closer to your writing goals.
There’s no talk about writing craft in this episode, but instead, Taylor and Steve discuss the danger of burnout, the way it can come quickly or slowly, and the value of taking a step back to refocus.
The show opens with Taylor discussing her recent teaching related travels and then we get into our main topic. As you’ll hear in the intro, much of the show was recorded as a joint episode between The Taylor Stevens Show and Steve’s Author Biz podcast. There were a few Author Biz podcast episodes mentioned, including:
TAB 080 with Colleen Story
Colleen’s Writing and Wellness Blog
TAB 071 with Annie Bellet
TAB092 with Honorée Corder
