Welcome to The Writer Files, a tour of the habits, habitats, and brains of renowned writers — from online content creators, to fictionists, journalists, entrepreneurs, and beyond.
Great writing is more vital and in demand than it’s ever been.
But sometimes writers get stuck — the right words don’t appear, we get distracted, or worse, lose interest in our work — and that’s when the solitary nature of writing can become a curse.
Host Kelton Reid is here to remind you that all writers have moments of doubt, feelings of ineffectiveness, and droughts where the words won’t flow.
For writers to stay productive, creative, and sane, sometimes we just need to take a look at how other scribes find ways keep the ink flowing and the cursor moving.
