Have you ever wondered if you should write your story? Or rather, have you wondered if you should publish your story? Maybe it’s a story that weaves the reader through idyllic settings and simplistic relational issues, or perhaps it’s the story you lived to tell about and the reason you have hope. 

I know that over 5.5 years ago when I started Simply Wholehearted, I wasn’t sure how to write, publish and share a book, but then I discovered hope*writers. Back in the day, it was just a podcast, and they were opening their doors to a group of wannabe writers who could learn from the experts and sojourn with like-minded friends. Since the hope*writers have become an outstanding community of thousands whose mission is to help you determine where you are on the writing journey and get you to your next path. 

Not only are they helping fellow writers like me, but they also were a partner in last month’s Wholehearted Enneagram Summit. The hope*writers team is so amazing to work with. We decided I should record a special episode to conclude the 16th season of the podcast- Today’s conversation is with Carla H. Hayden, Chief Operating Officer of h*w. She also happens to be an Enneagram Eight and incredibly well-versed in Enneagram insight. 

This conversation was so good because we chatted about my top 3 fav things, faith, enneagram, and writing. We also tackle the emotional struggle that might be getting in the way of creating the writing rhythm you desire. Carla is your go-to for clarity and the courage boost you might need. I’m fairly confident you will really enjoy this conversation and be excited to have Carla back on the podcast sometime soon!

Here are a few FREE resources from hope*writers to help you! (psst you can get all of them!)
