What Are You Investing in Your Book?

Episode #022

Guest Speaker ~ Dorothy Husen 

“For me, writers block is this fear that I want to write what’s real. I want to write what’s I am truly feeling like my deepest true self feelings and opinions, and, at the same time, I want to be liked by people. So I have this fear that it’s not going to be good enough. And, it’s a fear I struggle with.” 
– Dorothy Husen

Writers invest more than time and energy into their books. What (and how) we invest in our written projects shows up inside the book jacket. Dorothy Husen, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and author of Breaking the Chains of Transgenerational Trauma, and I discuss why it is wise to hire professionals to help us publish quality books.

We explored the topics of writer’s block and how mental health impacts creativity. She offered insight on a technique she uses to overcome writers block. After applying it, I found it quite beneficial and will use it for small and lengthy projects. 

There is no denying that creativitiy is a powerful way for us to express Self. Writing is a tool for exploring our emotions, fear, and who we are at our core. To share the story from within is a matter of finding what works. This involves getting in touch with who you are and voicing our true self in this world.

“Writing, for me, has been about the journey of healing and being more comfortable with who I am and developing that security within myself that I am good enough just the way I am.”
-Dorothy Husen
