The 71st episode of Sonitotum with Matthew Wayne Selznick turns the focus to staying healthy and sane as we build our creative writing life. Listen as I describe my own struggles with comparison, validation, and executing on what I know works. You’ll hear plenty you can apply to your own creative practice.
