GYWD 5: Finding the "Write" Balance

Episode #5

Today we’re going to tackle the question of how to find the right balance between work, life, writing, and whatever else it is you’re getting up to these days. This is an age old question and a lot of people have spilled a lot of ink on it. There’s a very good reason for that: balance is something you never stop needing to think about. It is an omnipresent challenge of life, one that none of us can escape. You might even say that the key to living your best life requires having a good strategy for balancing all the many things you have to do, and want to do, before you depart this mortal coil. And I think that for writers finding and managing that balance is trickier than it is for many. So that’s our challenge today, and when things get real, like all great philosophers I turn to board games for answers.
