This week, Nan steps into the sister-therapist role and talks Octavia out of a terrible case of fear and self-doubt over her biblical fiction novel concept. The two discuss the triggers behind writer’s block, and the boldness in storytelling, especially within the context of organized religion and how to choose honesty, even when writing fiction. Since the “counseling” session took up the entire episode, stay tuned for a bonus episode where Octavia interviews Nan about her Top Ten Things to Know for NaNoWriMo — because you can’t have NaNoWriMo without your Nan.
Disclaimer: neither Nan nor Octavia are trained, licensed or certified therapists — they are women with a lot of empathy, great listening skills, piles of support for each other and pockets full of good ideas.
