Ep. 135: Bridget Watson Payne on Enthusiasm (and being a grown-up!)
Full episode (Right click to download)
This week I got to have a wonderfully refreshing and honest conversation with writer and editor Bridget Watson Payne about her new books The Secret Art of Being a Grown-Up and How Art Can Make you Happy.
We talked about the best and hardest parts of being a grown-up, the intersections of creativity and enthusiasm and what to do with that pesky inner-critic of yours. We also dove into the creative process, political differences, and how to deal with rejection - especially if you have dreams of being published!
I think you'll love this episode as much as I do! Enjoy!
