"Do more than winter. I while i tend to focus mostly online at a time but i'll have products rotation celebrated draft of something put away senate to people for notes work on something else in between comeback the other one so i've usually got like maybe two to four things that i'm working on but not simultaneously makes them good And another thing. That was really interesting to me in the book. Was this idea of comforters. So it's something that sarah has in. Some family members have where they'll they'll build a drawer that they fill with kind of like keepsakes objects have special memory attached to them the things that bring them like comforter nostalgia which was a really beautiful idea and i was wondering if you were making comfort drawer. What sorts of things you put in for yourself. you know. So what kinds of things. But i put in it. Yeah while twenty i. I got the idea from sarah on brenick who wrote simple abundance. And i haven't made a comfort to our for myself but i wanted to and i kind of have a little cabinet but does have some comfort things and i would keep some dark chocolate dove dark chocolate with almonds and i think i would keep a really soft blankets. I would keep david weitz poetry. He's one of my very favorite politics. And i think some photos of some of my most favorite places and photos of my my children on. So i think it's words and beautiful places and thinks that smell good. I love essential oils so i probably have some of my favorite essential oils. There's one called sit just bloom. it smells like orange blossoms in arizona. A driver's porn. That could have that wonderful great collections. Memories and appealing to the census too. So i think we're we're coming up pretty close our time here before we go. I would love to just ask you since his debut novel. What has that experience been like for you. What's it what's it been like to have your first novel out into. The world had been thrilled to finally have come out. There's so much leading up to it. The to meet felt a little bit like childbirth for me in that. I was so ready to just have this baby. Get this done and hammer finally come out. And and it's been thrilling. I i love this story i am. I know that i'm the one that wrote it. And i. I grew to love this character in her story. And it's one of its one of creative courage mary. Oliver said that the most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to do something creative. and i'm paraphrasing. But but they're the ones who left left that rest of an uprising gave it neither power nor time and sarah is one who who was living a life fit where she was denying herself that and so i love the. I love the the story of giving something creative in her in oneself power in time and i feel like when we do that. We're living a fuller more happy alive life and so i want people to feel that And i hope that they do. I hope they find creative courage in in the story. I definitely provides kind of inspiration for sure. I felt that way. I'm gonna jump back in has been a great Episode of enjoyed Listening When i put this together and was thinking about Listeners who could be a great guest host for this. I thought sarah because of her book plus warranted yet and read at her listener website. It's the speaking of you know what if's Her her character Doesn't have a boyfriend to take to a wedding and so she built want and it all kind of problems within the family. And then jenny here creates this book. Where the daughter of this bestselling author has to write a book. And i'm thinking these people may each other thing come up with these kind of things you know And so i just have a couple of questions because Jenny as i'm listening here You said a couple of things jumped out at me. One was the fact that after you got over the crying in the bathroom and getting off on the wrong track and find your way back you said it took six years to get this thing in the world and i'm just wondering That's a long time to birth baby. And i'm just wondering how how hard that was for you. Are you normally a patient person. Is that something that was difficult for to take that long to finally get it into the world now. I had to really learn patients with the process. And it's something. I would repeat over and over again. Be patient in this process into actual writing of it took about three and a half years and then you know all this time afterwards trying to find an agent and then trying to sell the book I think there is this constant resistance that we have to face. I think in doing any good thing but certainly in the creative process. I think we all face this voice in the back of our heads. That says competed really do this and is is this worth doing and and does it matter. And are you the one to even be telling this story. And i've i've found isabel allende's said show up show up show up and then the news shows up and so i really had to come to this point where i really had to believe in the power of small and simple things that that doing those small courageous daily acts of simply showing up and turning on my computer and trying to get that word count in the. That would get me to where i needed to go. And i think that that's honestly the the secret of success in the creative world in the business world in anywhere that if we're willing to chew stand up to that voice in the back of our head questions us that that we can get there great and i'm not a very patient person so how it has sixers time to to get a book out but but but the other thing that i was thinking about here. Is that This idea that and it's happened to me and it's probably happened to both y'all and other times too but you start out with this idea like you said you probably had That you're going to go write this book and the book ended up. Writing was not the book you started writing kit. Can you talk about it. Was that a lesson to you in the writing process as to whether you should go in with all figured out or whether you should kind of let it unfold. That's a great question. I i had. There's a brighter john bauer. She's a fantastic writer of why fiction in she said whatever words that you end up having to cross out and get rid of lead you to the that you keep and so and i i. I believe that so so for me. It's whatever process gets you to whatever you peek at the end and so you know So for me plotting. Something out is the process that works for me. That helps me. Get to the lines in the chapters. That i am going to keep and and i do need that structure and so yeah. There's things.
