We hear from two listeners today who share two very common writing issues. The first talks about the emptiness she feels about both her ideas and confidence in getting them on the page when she finally pushes life aside and sits down to write. The second worries about the strength of her stories, a worry that is causing her desire to write to fade away. We’ve got authors Hesse Phillips (Lightborne) and Ron MacLean (We Might As Well Light Something On Fire) to help us out.
