In the Season 3 opener, Hannah and Leah discuss self-care for writers and why you might not be writing consistently.
Just as Season 2 ended, COVID-19 surged, the world shut down, social movements grew, and things haven’t been what most of us expected for 2020. Many writers have been struggling to create, and that goes back to one common factor: stress.
Expanding your definition of self-care and prioritizing your well-being may help your writing get back on track. Episode + resources below!
As we discuss in this episode, self-care is important for writers, but seeking professional help from a therapist or mental health professional may be important for your creativity and overall well-being.
