Episode 74: Becoming a Writer: When a book idea hits (but you’re not a writer) with Author Tara Whitney

How do you write a book when you don’t even identify as a writer? This is the path my guest this week walked. Tara Whitney started her career as an accountant where she wrote concise clear business communications. Then, she became a yoga teacher and a coach. And her idea for a book arrived, unbidden. She wrote that first book and loved the process so much, she now identifies as a writer and is hard at work on her second book, with more to come.

In this episode, we discussed:

  • How Tara managed to get that first book drafted in three months
  • The impact her book had on her business (it wasn’t what she expected)
  • How she showed herself grace through the process by not demanding perfection
  • and much more!
