Awesome interview, John and Nancy! So true about discipline being the biggest core problem for many writers. Writing can be scary, so it inspires more procrastination than writing sometimes 😀
Looking forward to hearing those setting tips during Nancy’s talk. Thanks for this.

Thanks, Mandy. That’s one of the benefits of the group, being able to share some of the common problems and solutions. See you on Saturday!
