A Creative Partner
Without a doubt, the Slice of Life Challenge has been my March creative partner.
The Slice of Life Challenge has made me laugh out loud.
The Slice of Life Challenge has made me feel seen.
The Slice of Life Challenge has helped me grow as a writer.
As it comes to an end, I find myself thinking about what parts of me I haven't yet shared with all of you. And I haven't yet shared a whole lot about my personal, creative process. So today's post is about a podcast that makes me laugh out loud, feel seen, and helps me grow as a writer.
This may not seem personal, but it is. This podcast helps me keep going when I feel like quitting, keep going when I think selling another manuscript is out of reach, keep going when I think I'm not as talented as other writers.
It's Creative Pep Talk by Andy J. Pizza.
Every week I anxiously await Wednesday, because without fail, a new episode drops. He's been podcasting every week, without fail, for eight years-400 episodes.
Yep, 400 episodes.
Yet, every time I listen I learn something new about myself or am able to see something from a different point of view or feel as though someone knows exactly how I feel.
So, when April first rolls around and you're feeling lost because you've lost your March creative partner, you have more than a years worth of episodes that you can listen to whenever you need a creative partner or at the very least a... Creative Pep Talk.

There’s definitely a void when March comes to a close! I haven’t heard of this podcast—I’ll have to check it out! I love the recommendation!

Well, Kate, that is what I needed today. I haven't sent manuscripts out for years, but the slice of life and seeing that some people do that is making me want to reconsider and start again. This is a timely post for me. I will definitely add this to my podcast subscription. It is very impressive that he has not taken breaks or done eight seasons, instead of EIGHT. FULL. YEARS. Wow! Your testimony makes me want to give it a listen. Thank you!

Slice of Life Challenge
My 2023 one little word goal is PLAY. So, one of the ways I'm playing is by joining in the Two Writing Teachers' Slice of Life Story Challenge. My first post will be March 1st. Happy reading!
