Writer Mom Life Episode 46: Holly Ostara from Fiction Alchemy

Holly had a busy 2018: first baby and first book! After years of writing, the looming due date of one (the baby) pushed her to set a hard deadline on the second (her book). As if that didn’t keep her busy enough, she also created her own community and resources for indie authors! She talks about Fiction Alchemy and using Discord the connect to other writers.

Daphne and Holly also chat about:

  • Being comfortable with your writing crew and the fear of adding new people
  • Writing under a pen name and as a ghost writer
  • Her daily schedule of working from home with baby
  • Her favorite outlining resources
  • Using tarot in her writing
  • Doing video sprints with her writing partner
  • A baby sleep tip that all parents might want to give a try!
