We ask for clarity, we say we want clarity, but when clarity tries to come, we also resist it. One of the reasons that clarity seems to elude us is that clarity is incredibly expensive. In today's episode, I’ll talk about what clarity costs us. What would you have to let go of in your life in order to find the clarity you’ve been craving?

When rewriting a story from your life, it can be tempting to skip over the parts that are challenging or uncomfortable. But rewriting a story isn’t about ignoring the truth. It’s about integrating the truth into a higher Truth. How do you access a higher, better truth when the details of your story are dark, heavy, uncomfortable or sad? In today’s episode I’ll share some tools that have been helpful for me as I navigate this transi...

On this week’s episode of the Write Your Story podcast, I’m sharing a vulnerable story that I’ve never shared before. This is a story about leaving an important part of myself behind—how I realized she was gone, how I went back to find her, and how I am integrating her into my life now so I can live the fullest, most authentic, version of myself today. I hope this story brings you some solidarity and even inspiration to track down ...

You have a story you want to tell. But have you ever considered that maybe your body is telling another story entirely? Our bodies are constantly talking to us but we may not be that great at listening. In this interview, my friend and energy expert Elizabeth Bennett shares how we can become better listeners and students of our bodies so we can write and share the most true story possible.

On last week’s episode I talked about the power of quitting to completely change the way your story unfolds. This week I want to share something BIG I’m quitting as it relates to publishing—and that I believe you should quit, too. Hint: it won’t be what you expect.

Quitting can be a superpower, in large part because the plot of the story moves when the hero of the story takes action. But how do you know when to quit something and when to stick it out? In this episode I explore the answer by sharing one thing I’m quitting and one thing I’m keeping around, in spite of (sometimes) wanting to quit.

If you’ve ever fantasized about being a “famous” author (or famous in any other kind of way) what do you think that drive for fame is actually about? In this episode, I want to talk about the three basic human needs I think are actually at play when we have a desire for fame and how we can actually get those needs met.

Sometimes we go through seasons of life (and writing) where it feels like nothing is happening. Progress seems halted. Momentum feels paused. What if — when life feels like it’s happening in backward motion — more progress is taking place than you can sense or measure? That’s what I’m talking about in today's episode. The concept is called “Wintering” and I hope it brings you as much peace as it has for me.

If you’ve ever told yourself that writing a book would be futile because “nobody would ever read it” don’t miss this conversation with NYT Bestselling author William Paul Young. With no plans to publish, Paul wrote a story for his wife and six kids. 20+ million copies and a major motion picture later, he stands by who this book was for — which in his words was about 12 people. Connecting wide starts with connecting deep.
