Sharing this in Linkedin Writing groups. Good stuff, Elisa…

    Elisa Doucette says September 16, 2014

    Thanks! I really enjoyed Chris’ episode and how honest he was. Not often you get such candor from someone about things we are all supposed to have “figured out”. Would expect nothing less from him though!

Mars Dorian says September 17, 2014

Bookmarked it. Can’t wait to listen to it, first thing in the morning. Hope you continue, Elisa 😉

    Elisa Doucette says September 17, 2014

    Oh, I’ve got another 15 waiting in the wings to be published. Recorded a LOT of content the past month getting ready for it. Lots for you to listen to!

Tom Mullaly says September 19, 2014

That was great Elisa, you’re a natural: if one was building an interviewer of writers for a podcast, one would be aiming basically to build you! Really enjoyed this, keep going.

    Elisa Doucette says September 19, 2014

    Wow, that’s quite a review to live up to Tom! Glad you are enjoying, I’m loving talking to people about their writing. Already got a bunch recorded, episodes scheduled through the end of the year!
