Writer Nation Podcast – Writing is a Gift You Share
For today’s episode on the Writer Nation Podcast, we are featuring Mandy Houk
“Writing is a Gift, and the Gift was not given to you to keep. You should expect to share that gift.”
Mandy Houk: Mom, Writer, All-Around Nice Gal!
Hello Fellow Writers & Readers!
Writing since she was four years old, Mandy wrote her first (and last) romance about a squirrel. Now she writes literary fiction and is working on a historical fiction novel set in 1929. We met up in Colorado Springs when I was there back in the fall, and I couldn’t wait to have her on the podcast. She’s one of the most enthusiastic supporters of other writers I know.
Topics covered in the show:
- Why we write
- Why we should keep writing
- Writing your first book
- Finding an agent
