Welcome to the very first Creative Breakthrough Podcast! My guest is Janice Day (pictured), author of “Getting It Off My Chest,” the funny and touching story of how a huge challenge (breast cancer) became the vehicle for the transformation of her life. She talks about the various approaches to memoir writing that she tried, which one finally worked (and why), how to find your voice, dealing with agents and publishers and more.
I also tell the story of how therapist Milton Erickson dealt with a patient who thought he was Jesus Christ, and how Erickson’s approach can help you be a better writer.
As will be customary, my faithful manservant Arthur co-hosts.
