Since the last Tribe Writers class I taught in October, I've been busy. In the months since, I've spoken with hundreds of writers, asking them where they are getting stuck and how to work through those challenges. I've been coaching, teaching, and learning a lot -- all with the intent of better helping you, my dear reader and fellow writer. I've been studying the methods of successful writers from all genres, and what I've developed is a 12-step roadmap that will help just about any struggling writer break through to the next level.

"Writers don't make any money." I've heard teachers and relatives and even authors themselves say this. But is it true? It doesn't have to be. Yes, we have all heard the tales of starving artists. But here's the other side of that story: You don't have to starve. Not today. Not with the countless opportunities that exist to share your message with the world.

Rank #8: How to Write Your Best Book: Part One

Podcast cover
Read more

Writing your first book is equal parts intimidating and exhilarating. You're scared and excited at the same time. One fear that grips new authors is how to write a book in the first place. Turns out, you re-learn this skill with every new title. After writing four books, you might assume that it was easy for me to tackle a fifth without much help. But we both know that lasting creative success happens in the context of community. Real Artists Don't Starve was no exception.

Rank #12: 012: Learning the Secret to Mastery: An Interview with Robert Greene [Podcast]

Podcast cover
Read more

We were all born to do one important thing: to pursue our "life's task" and master it. That's what Robert Greene believes. In fact, he's written a whole book about the subject, and it's called Mastery. Awhile back, I had a chance to sit down (virtually speaking) with Robert and interview him. We talked about the concept of calling, apprenticeship, and how to master your craft. Greene believes we all have something we intuitively know we were meant to do, and the path to that work — what he calls your "life's task" — is less glamorous than we've been told.
