Episode 62 - Don’t Believe Everything You Read Online (especially about morning routines)

Today we talk about morning routines: a little bit about our own, but mostly about how much BS people say when in articles about theirs. (Spoiler alert: you still deserve to be a writer, even if you're not a morning person!) This brings us on to how to take care of yourself (hint: not just bubble baths), and what that can give you in terms of motivation.

And then we talk a bit about the tools we've been using for research and writing, since we are both working on new projects. (Another spoiler: Meghan gives a short masterclass in using notecards.)

Also we discussed how funny it is when people try to convince you that your book isn't bad (when they haven't read it), and why we love citing other people's ideas.

Episode 61: Creative Focus with Jessica Abel

In today's episode, we get some great lessons in creative focus from cartoonist, author and educator Jessica Abel. We have loved all the inspirational but practical work she has done on being a creative when you have a busy life - from her workbook Growing Gills to her practical advice on creative focus.

She gave us some great advice on saying goodbye to projects we have finished, how to pick a project when you have a million ideas, and how to manage your energy in your creative and day job lives.

You can find her at jessicaabel.com, or on Twitter and Instagram @visiblewoman.
