Aligning with Your Audience
Guest Speaker ~ Crystal Cockerham
“You could write the most beautiful piece of work ever, but if it doesn’t match the audience that’s going to pick up that book, it’s not going to be received with the intention you’re giving it. At the end of the day, it isn’t about what I know, experienced, or who I am. It’s about what they read and need in that moment.”
– Crystal Cockerham
Crystal Cockerham, author and spiritual mentor, is one very productive young woman. I felt blessed to have her join me in the virtual Pen to Paper Press Podcast studio. For this conversation, the line of questions were presented to me in a different format than normal. On the morning of the interviews, I tune in to my heart and allow the questions and topics to write themselves onto the document.
What I love about my conversation with Crystal is her openness, flexibility to roll with whatever topic was brought up, and the wisdom she shared. We began by talking about her guided mediations and the accompanying journal she developed. Our conversation gracefully transitioned into the various collaboration book projects she’s participated in. I shook things up when I brought up the retreats she offers. You are going to love the animal spirit wisdom (message) she received during the call. The timing was incredible!
Pour yourself a mug of hot tea and listen as Crystal and I speak about journals, women’s spiritual retreats, and her “old school” method for getting the first draft down on paper. And, Spirit has a powerful message for Crystal near the end of our conversation! Enjoy!

I loved the part of the podcast that dealt with writing for your reader and not for yourself. That idea has changed the way I write and has definitely improved the quality.
Thank you Barb! I am so glad that you heard a message in there for you. I’d love to know how it goes with your next writing project!
Crystal provided a wealth of information in this episode, didn’t she? I’m glad it resonated with you, Barb.
