Today is a big one! I'm joined by the legendary Steven Pressfield. If you haven't heard of him, you're probably living under a rock. He wrote one of the best books I've ever read on the creative process called "The War of Art". On this interview, we talk about: -What I learned from being a copywriter at an ad agency - and how it helped me write better books -Should you write fiction or nonfiction first? -What I learned from being a screenplay writer and how it made me a better fiction writer -What is “resistance” and how you can fight through it to write your book -The common resistance points of writing a book (and any project) -Should you write a novel or a screenplay first (and how to get your book turned into a movie) -How I stay motivated to keep going in my 70's Steven is such a funny and engaging guy. You don't want to miss this interview! Check it out and let me know what you think.
