#135 Paul Jarvis
Bigger isn't always better for writing.
Of course we'd all love a movie deal for our books or a huge advance, but the actual process of writing isn't about making everything bigger and better.
Paul Jarvis lives in the woods in Canada and has managed to make a successful living centered around writing for nearly twenty years. In this conversation, we explore what it means to be a Company of One as a writer, why staying small lets you write more, and what caused him to go with traditional publishing this time around- it's not what you'd think!
Happy listening, writers. Here's hoping this episode has you sighing in relief.
