Episode 47: Diving Deep into the Creative Process and Making Time to Write with David Nash Carson
Do you love writing but find yourself never actually being able to sit down and actually write? Or if you do manage to sit down, you only write for 10 minutes? If so, this is The School of Travels podcast episode for you! David Nash Carson started traveling in 2016 without a clear idea of where it would take him, but there was one thing he made sure to do no matter where he found himself on the road—write as much as he possibly could. In fact, one of his stories actually led him to creating an Etsy business that now helps to fund his travel. In his very first podcast interview, David shares key insights he has learned about overcoming the resistance to writing and just getting your thoughts down on the page. If you’ve ever found yourself with a story to tell but can’t seem to find the motivation to sit down and do it, you won’t want to miss this episode.
