You want your writing to help people and give hope, and we want to help YOU and give YOU hope! Maybe you’re a beginner stumped with questions about your next steps. Or you’ve been writing for a while but feel you need some clarity in why you write. Maybe you want help to live the life you’re encouraging others to live, without feeling like a phony. Or maybe you’re an author who’s been doing this for years but you long to see how other writers balance the business side of the writing life. Well, we fill every episode with encouragement, inspiration, and practical advice about the writing craft, business, and calling. Emily and Myquillyn have been writing online for nearly ten years. The four of us have published a total of seven books, several of them best sellers. We know what it’s like to feel stuck, aimless, and uninspired in our writing.

You’re going to see your writing dreams more clearly than ever. You’re going to gain hope. And you’re going to have fun.

Best Discovery As Of Late

As someone who has one book manuscript in the works and a few other ideas in my head, this podcast was a great discovery. I stumbled upon it and have been listening to about 2-3 episodes a day, catching up on all the past episodes. I love the practical approach they all have and I love that there are a few different voices in the mix. My only complaint is that I am going to run out of episodes soon! This podcast has given me such great inspiration and tangible steps I can take as I make writing a more prominent part of my life! Thank you all for such amazing episodes!

Thank you!!

I feel like God asked me to write a book. I am struggling so much. When I write the devil attacks and tells me all about my hard works mediocrity. It gets so hard and frustrating to face it alone! I soooooo need a community of people who know what it is like!! Cannot thank you enough!! Look for my book The Lost Child by Jessica Philpot (gingers crossed its coming soon) That “gingers” instead of fingers is a funny typo I’m leaving on purpose because I’m a gong IRL. Also, thank you again for doing what you’re doing!! 😍

Practical and insightful

So fun and easy to listen to- writers will glean lots of helpful advice.
