Show Notes:43. Karen Ball & Erin Taylor Young — Why Writers Give Up

Karen Ball & Erin Taylor Young are fellow podcasters with deep experience in writing, editing, and coaching writers. Together, through their podcast and books, they seek to serve as chaplains to writers, a description I’ve come to like.

They join me to talk about their podcast, what it means to “write from the deep,” and why so many aspiring writers give up. Their advice is hard earned, empathetic, and encouraging.
