Key Takeaways:

[1:15] Vicky is solo this podcast episode! What’s she reading right now?

[4:40] Why do writers don’t write? The biggest excuse is they don’t have time!

[6:40] Everyone is busy but there is a deeper excuse underneath that.

[7:30] Feeling overwhelmed? Don’t know where to start?

[9:15] Action causes motivation which causes inspiration and that causes more action and the cycle repeats in a good way!

[11:40] Just start by writing 200 crappy words a day! Anyone can do that!

[12:25] Vicky can’t wait to run a writing retreat...in person!

[13:15] The world needs to be open and honest. The world needs to talk more about politics, religion, and money without having the family throw food at each other!

[17:25] Why are Russians so blunt?

[21:25] Have you used any of those excuses before? Well, maybe it’s time to start writing your book. Vicky gives you permission!
