Why Writers Need Vacation feat. Kaila Walker

I teamed up with the amazing Kaila Walker for this weeks video to answer the question: why is vacation important for writers? Is there something behind traveling that opens up writer’s to a whole new world? Is vacation the magic cure to writer’s block? Well, maybe not, but there are benefits to taking the time to experience everything life has to offer.

#AuthorTubeRetreat2018 – a Vlog of Memories

What do I even say? It’s hard to render a writer speechless but I don’t know how to sum up this past weekend with justice.

Let’s start with this: here’s my vlog!

I miss these girls so much already. Never in my life have I been surrounded by such like-minded people, people I was afraid to say goodbye to. All of us have so much ahead of us in our futures so be sure to subscribe to everyone’s channels and show the love!

 

There are many collabs coming so be on the lookout!

I’ve Failed as an Author

I hope every author out there knows what I’m talking about. Writing and supporting yourself as an author is something that is very hard to do. For myself, I have doubts every day. Am I doing the right thing? Should I give up now and find something else to do? To put it simply, I’m terrified. It’s hard to keep up with everything. Heck, I have no idea when I’m going to finish writing book number three. I also don’t know when I’m going to sell those hundred copies of books in my car. With college and a job, it’s a lot. I just hope if you feel the same way, that this video makes you feel less alone. We just have to keep moving forward!
