Episode 1.15: Considering Self-care

Posted by on Aug 15, 2016 in | 2 comments

One of the essential parts of a creative life is making sure that you can keep on creating new things. As MidAmericon II is fast approaching, our intrepid introverts talk about self-care. They touch on both acute situations as well as going the long slog that can sometimes get exhausting. This is a resource-heavy episode with a huge list of links to various things the Mad Writers have found helpful.

    I would recommend Word Work by Bruce Holland Rogers as a good book for writers which addresses self-care issues. I read it around the time that I did VP in 2003, so it won’t tackle modern social media, but I think it’s still a good resource.

    Also, apparently the Miracle Morning people have a new “Miracle Morning for Writers” book. I have not checked it out yet.
