Welcome to the Pens & Prosecco Podcast
My vision behind this podcast is to discuss all stages of the writing journey. Why? Because success doesn’t happen over night. And talking about the hardships, talking about how others struggle with writer’s block/burn out/loss of drive and thousands of other negative affects that comes from choosing to pursue this mentally/emotionally demanding passion is important. It’s important to know you’re not alone. &&& it’s important to know that when it’s hard, there’s a way to make it out on the other side. Writing can also be a beautiful, vulnerable challenge that can set your soul on fire. The Pens and Prosecco Podcast is here to remind you that no journey is the same, but each journey is worth pursuing. The writing community is strong, welcoming and full of support! Make connections, find your people and works towards your goals!
