On the 21st episode of Go Book Yourself, the podcast that helps you “Master Writing, Marketing, and Publishing One Byte at a Time,” we are chatting it up with the incomparable Drew Linsalata.

For the past seven years, Drew has hosted The Anxious Truth podcast, boasting over 1,000,000 downloads (and growing). After liberating himself from crippling anxiety, he now helps others manage their anxieties and panic disorders. A three-time author, today, we are getting the scoop on what works in writing a book, what you need to do, what you don’t need to do, and what Drew learned in writing the soon-to-be-released, Seven Percent Slower, which joins The Anxious Truth: A Step-By-Step Guide to Understanding and Overcoming Panic, Anxiety, and Agoraphobia, and An Anxiety Story: How I Recovered From Anxiety, Panic and Agoraphobia—both long-standing Amazon bestsellers.

Drew has a lot to teach you about the process, honoring the voice in your head, saying yes to your ideas, and … peaches!

Your three quick tips from Drew:

  1. Teach yourself that you can write day after day. After Drew built up more confidence, he found he could churn out content faster.
  2. You must flip your story around to benefit the reader. 
  3. Tell yourself you are whatever title you need to hear to start your book. It was only after Drew told himself that he was a “teacher” that he felt free to write. 

If you and anxiety don’t see eye to eye, tune into Drew’s podcast The Anxious Truth wherever podcasts are available and follow him on social media. You won’t be disappointed, and you will be entertained.

As always, if you have any questions or are ready to create your book, reach out to your host, Hilary Jastram, for guidance. Go here → GBYPodcast.com.
