Strategies for Writing a Book in the Margins of a Busy Life

Work crises, screaming children, health scares, competing commitments—these aren’t exactly the ideal conditions for creativity. Yet as writers know, life doesn’t stop just because you’re trying to write! How do authors manage to get anything done in such slim margins?


This week, we discuss this question with Dr. Shin-Yu Lee, a residency-trained, board-certified pharmacist who made a career change to being an author while caring for her two medically complex children. In this conversation, Shin-Yu shares authentically to normalize what writing a book looks like in the midst of a really busy life. Rich with practical ideas like schedule coordinating and “mini outlines,” this episode gives both validation and inspiration for how you can make the most of even short blocks of time toward your writing goals. 

Connect with Shin-Yu on Instagram at @lifewithshinyu for authentic conversation around writing, parenting, and more. Learn more about Berry Powell Press here and follow us at @berrypowellpress on Instagram.
