Like sitting down with a good friend. Equal parts inspiration and comfort

I adore this podcast. Listening to it feels like sitting down with a creative friend over something warm. Sarah offers support, reassurance, her own struggles in validation of yours and humorous comfort to get you through your day. I smile every time an episode pops up in my feed.

Great podcast

This is the first podcast I’ve really gotten into, I love this. It’s very inspiring to me. I’m a young writer, amateur and this really keeps me going.

You inspire me. I simply love your podcast and I always look forward to when I can listen to another episode. I’ve been gleaning much as I putter around my home and listen to you whilst I work. There is a wealth of information here. Growing up I had an 8th grade education and sometimes that can make me feel “less than,” not having been to high school or college. Your podcast makes me feel smart and encourages me to keep writing. One day I’ll be a published author and your podcast will have had a hand in that accomplishment. Thank you from the bottom of my creative heart.

Spectacular Pod Cast

I have an hour drive to work everyday at 2 o’clock in the morning and I have listened to my fair share of podcasts, mostly on writing. Sarah’s podcast is most definitely my favorite. She is interactive with her amazing guests and I am always very interested with the material.

Just what I needed

I have always wanted to write a novel. I created a base outline and decided to see if there were on podcasts on writing. I am so grateful for stumbling upon this podcast! Everything I could ever need brought to me in a very calm, sweet and supportive voice! Thank you so much for your knowledge!

Love Sarah enough to post a review even though I hate iTunes. :)

I am not a writer. It took me a long time to realize that even though I enjoy coming up with stories and plots, I do not enjoy putting pen to paper and making them more final. For me the Write Now podcast is very theraputic. It has led me down a healthier self-care route that enables me to put my time and energy into creating something every day (even if it's not writing). Sarah's podcast is uplifting and inspirational. At the end of every episode I feel I can take on the world! Thank you Sarah!

Informative, Encouraging, and Entertaining

Sarah is a great podcaster! I have been listening to her Write Now podcast over the last year and it has inspired me to pursue writing. As of a year ago, I never would have thought I could be a writer. I always dismissed my work as being subpar and incomprable to what actual "writers" could do. But, Sarah helped to show me that writing is not all about ability--that's something you can develop--but mainly about mindset; I am a writer because I say I am!Sarah discusses a multitude of topics that can really help shape your understanding of writing and provide new perspective on who you are as a writer. Above anything else, she is encouraging! I have never once felt like I had to re-evaluate my identity as a writer because she came down hard on a topic. Maybe I had to look at my writing differently (which is a good thing), but never my identity.Finally, Sarah creates a ton of laughs! She's a joy to listen to and I always look forward to her Write Now episodes. I haven't been able to follow her Coffee Break episodes as much, but the ones I've been able to listen to are engaging.Thank you, Sarah, for inspiring and enncouraging so many of us, myself included.

This is only the best.

This is one of the first podcasts I subscribed to and I will always be an avid supporter. Sarah rocks; her kindness, intelligence, interviews, advice, overwhelming support, and she of humor rocks! Check out Girl in Space while you're at it!

Grateful

I recently graduated with a BFA in creative writing and after four years I was somewhat burnt out. Your podcast is like a breath of life for people that may be struggling to put their words on paper. Thank you for having the answers to the questions that we haven’t asked yet.

Good for you!

Sarah, this is a long overdue review. I love your podcast! I usually listen twice as I often listen at night because your voice is so easy to listen to, but then I slip off into slumber land and miss half of it so, I play it again. While I have enjoyed many of your coffee breaks, I had been thinking a while back how much I really missed your thoughts on writing so I was thrilled to listen to the "Critics and You" posting on July 16 and hear you are doing what fills your cup and giving up the coffee breaks. Good for you, which is good for us, the listeners. Keep up the hard work. I will be listening. Not once, but twice.

Thank you.

The Coffee Break series is great. Sarah is always intelligent and insightful. She treats her guests with a great deal of compassion. However, I really find myself missing the original Write Now episodes where Sarah spoke directly to the audience on a variety of writing related topics. They felt like pep talks, and would often leave me energized and motivated. While I prefer Write Now to the Coffee Break episodes, both are cherished gifts.
