E037: Make Fiction Fun (and Find Your Inner Child) with Beth Barany

Today’s guest is Beth Barany.

An award-winning novelist, Beth is a speaker, teacher, coach, and co-founder of the Barany School of Fiction that she runs with her husband, Ezra.

Here are the fun nuggets from our interview:
Fun nugget #1: Finding a writing community can help you to navigate the vast and unknown (often overwhelming) world of fiction
Fun nugget #2: There are robust, tested methods out there that allow you to save time (and therefore money) in writing your fiction work
Fun nugget #3: Fiction writing can turn work into play 🙂
Fun nugget #4: Perfection is the enemy of getting it done
Fun nugget #5:  A self-publishing checklist can help you to chart out your journey and keep you organized. Beth also suggests a “meta-document” where you keep all of the information about your book in one place.

Here is the Author Survey report we mentioned in the interview.
