Does your writing make you feel egotistical?
Writer’s ego is a real thing. As a writer, you may face it more than once throughout your career. However, these blocks that oftentimes keep us away from sharing our stories, are covered by something thicker. An armor that makes us feel protected from the outside especially if there are scars from the past or wounds that still need to heal.

In today’s episode, Lauren talks about the difference between ego and armor, and how not knowing how to handle them could become an obstacle to your writing. She also delves into how you can get through them and finally tell your story without feeling judged or pretending to be someone you’re not.
