Hack Your Muse Interview with Guest Beth Barany by Kelly McClymer (podcast)

Writing is hard work. Don t laugh. Writers may not move mountains, literally, but we often do so with our minds. To be a successful writer, you need to write. To write, you need to conquer obstacles and writing blocks that arise. And you need to do that quickly.

USA Today bestselling author Kelly McClymer interviewed me for her show, “Hack Your Muse” in which we discuss these topics.

Check out Ep. 4 Hack Your Muse: The Mystery of the Big “M” and Neurolinguistic Programming with me as the guest. First appeared on KellyMcClymerBooks.

Kelly asked me great questions such as:

  • What even is a neurolinguistic programming practitioner?
  • What do you think of when you hear “writing muse”? The mystery, the big capital M.
  • When you sit down to write and you don’t write, how do you handle that?
  • Do you remember the first time you sat down and wrote something?
  • How vivid is what you want to write in your mind? Is it misty?
  • What’s your #1 go-to tip to get the writing done?
