When looking for answers, the best way to look for them is within yourself. Writing your story comes from within. Writing has been such a therapeutic exercise for me. I’ve been journaling since I was a little girl because it helped me take out big and small feelings that I couldn’t express to others. As an adult, it helps me sort through my thoughts, dreams, and experiences, and I highly recommend writing to anyone who wants to add a new form of self-love to their life.
My guest today is Camille Campins-Adams, the best-selling author and a book coach that helps you launch the book inside of you. This conversation brought back my excitement to get back to my book. A little over a year ago, I started writing a book based on styling and life. I dedicated writing hours every night for months until I hit a roadblock. The stories pouring out of me were from a difficult time in my life I still had to overcome. I didn’t want stories as part of the book but needed help to steer it back. I decided to take a break and reach out to Camille again to talk about:
- How to overcome burnout
- When to pivot
- The best ways to stay accountable in the writing process
Whether you want to become an author or write for your healing, this episode is for you!
My favorite part of this conversation is how much knowledge and passion she has for writing and helping others. The part that stood out to me is if I dedicate 5 hours a week, I can finish about one chapter a week, which means my first messy draft could be done in months. I’m on it this holiday season!
I also liked how Camille opened up about moving her business back to one-on-one. I just had a conversation with another business friend about why we stay stuck in a part of our business that doesn’t light us up. Almost like a bad relationship, you stay thinking you can fix it somehow, and as much as you go at it, it doesn’t work.
The sooner you let go of what isn’t working for you anymore, the sooner you can get what you want to work on and say yes to. When you say no to one thing, you open the door to many other opportunities in a different direction.
