Writing is a process that is sacred to those who love it. The act of putting yourself on paper through story and sharing perspective from your own lens provides such a freedom and outlet. But how do you get there? On this episode we sit down with published author and musician Austen Roye as he tells us about his journey and process. Stories of inspiration, the days of touring with his band, and more. He even shares the best practices when submitting your work for publication and provides insight to further your education and passion for writing creatively.  Crisis Chronicles Press  God Save Your Mad Parade

Relationships, The Truth About Courting a Creative - Episode 5
Hating the game vs the player isn't as easy as it sounds, especially if the "player" is a scatter-brained chatterbox of never-ending ideas and also...your significant other. Today we have a very special guest with us who shows us what's behind the curtain of being married to a creative. Our quirks, habits, endearing qualities...and the not so endearing. We'll flip the script and find out what it looks like while we're in the zone. So grab your loved one and some popcorn and settle in for some sound relationship advice from two unqualified, but in love, individuals.
