Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Lauren Sapala, author, blogger, and writing coach. I’ve been following Lauren for quite some time now on the Intro-Twittersphere and have found her to be a fount of advice on writing, marketing your writing and doing it all as a highly sensitive, creative introvert. After reading her book Firefly Magic and absolutely loving it, I wanted to know more about her and how she writes.

What we discussed

How to stop forcing ourselves into social media boxes that don’t fit us
How to drop the “rational” voice in our head that says marketing needs to look a certain way
The importance of boundaries on social media
How we can take the pressure to be perfect off
How to find your a Unique Spiritual Purpose
