  1. Hi Sarah!

    I just finished listening to the first 6 of your podcasts, and I *love* them. They (you) are so encouraging! I think you’re meeting a great need of so many writers, even very experienced writers. I’m in the middle of my novel now, so your stories of struggles, heart aches, and self doubt help me keep going and not give up. 🙂

    I especially enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of your heart-to-heart discussions in each podcast. I picture myself sitting with you and your guest at a Starbucks, sipping our coffee together and sharing our innermost doubts and frustrations of our writing lives. I think you touch something deep inside us whenever you bare your own soul and speak frankly about the various emotional states you encounter along the journey. Thank you for being so open and transparent, we really appreciate it!

    One suggestion you might consider in future episodes… I found the “colorful” language used in one of the episodes to be a bit jarring, and perhaps not as professional as it should be. You not only allowed it, but seemed to encourage it in that episode. Perhaps a more “family friendly” approach might be better? Anyway, that’s my opinion. 🙂

    Thanks again. I am already a great fan, and I look forward to listening to the remainder of the podcasts.

    1. Hi Stephen,
      Thank you so much for listening to the podcast and for your kind words. I’m really happy that you have found it encouraging, and I hope it continues to inspire and support you as you write. I’m sorry that you found the language in one interview jarring, but I do think it’s important to let people discuss their experiences in their own words. I appreciate that this means not all interviews will be to everyone’s taste! That particular episode is marked as ‘explicit’ on iTunes, but you have made me realise that I need to do more to alert people as to the content/language of each episode. I want the podcast to be a safe and pleasant experience for every listener and will have a think of how best to achieve that. Very best wishes, Sarah

  2. Hi Sarah,

    I’m delighted to see that your new podcast is out! I always look forward to your podcasts at the beginning of each month. When you post a new one, I put it right right at the top of my very long podcast list. I really enjoy the topics, and want to thank you for having an ongoing positive impact on my writing life. Keep up the great work–you are making a real difference for writers who are worried, fearful, self-doubting, anxious, etc. And really that means almost all of us, to some degree or other!

    1. Hi Laura,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment – I really appreciate it. The self-doubt monster has been strong this week and your message has give me a much-needed boost. Thank you! Do let me know if you have any suggestions for the show (or questions you would like answered) and thank you, again, for listening. Good luck with your writing – I’m cheering you on! Best wishes, Sarah
