Episode 191: Asking The Right Questions

I have the plague and Joe is left to steer the ship in this week's episode of the 1,000 Authors Show. Between bouts of coughing and spluttering, we explain why many would-be authors struggle to get started – and share the three questions that will get you unstuck. Also, we  have an exciting new light which highlights the bags under their eyes. Tune in this week for germs, exploding foreheads, eye-bags, and three useful nuggets of information that'll help you write your book.
