In this episode, Mike and RaeAnne discuss: 

  • Making time to write while dealing with important life events
  • Writing stories with happy endings
  • Benefits of having literary agents

Key Takeaways: 

  • An important life event should never destroy a writer’s constant and burning desire to express herself through writing and get it done. To attain work-life balance, they simply need to practice flexibility.
  • There’s so much need for authors to write books with happy endings especially in these trying times because happy stories give people hope and comfort, the courage to move forward, and remind  them of the significance of love and generosity at all times.
  • Working with literary agents can give you peace of mind since they can assist you in finding an editor, determine whether or not your manuscripts have significant market potential, and guide you through the publishing process.

“Believe in yourself. Anybody who wants to be successful in this career can be successful, but it’s not going to happen overnight. It’s going to take work, you’re gonna have to write a lot of words.” – RaeAnne Thayne
