Episode 40: KJ Dell’Antonia and how to be a happier writer

This month, we interview KJ Dell'Antonia, the author of the very-soon-to-be-released book How To Be A Happier Parent, parent, former New York Timesreporter and editor of the NYT's Motherlodeblog and contributing editor of the NYT's Well Family section. Our listeners are probably most familiar with KJ as the co-host of the wonderful #AmWriting podcast. KJ talked to us about how to hold on to your writer self, even when little humans need something from you, in order to get the words down. Her tips aren't just for parents, either -- there's a lot that non-parents can learn, too. She also talks about charting a path toward being a writer, making the transition from nonfiction to fiction, and the value of writing friendships.

As always, we'd love for you to take a minute to rate and review us in your podcast app, as this helps other listeners find the show.
