Imagining Success with Mary Robinette Kowal
4d ago
Imagining Success with Mary Robinette Kowal
“Imagining Success” is an interview series where I talk to authors who have achieved career milestones that others only dream about and ask them how they got there and where they go from here.  In this interview, I speak with award-winning SFF author Mary Robinette Kowal about the meaning of success and how it evolves over time. She discusses the motivations behind her writing, the challenges she faces, and the importance of authenticity in her work. We also touch on impostor syndrome, goal setting, and finding the essence of what drives us as writers. Find Mary Robinette online at https://maryrobinettekowal.com/ Her latest novel is The Spare Man Watch this episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/WFL5WPFDwr8   The My Imaginary Friends podcast is a behind the scenes look at the journey of a working author navigating traditional and self-publishing.
