Wild Words by Nicole Gulotta

When we face a major life change – when we take a new job, start a longer commute, take on a caregiving role, or have children – all our carefully developed writing routines can go right out the window. Instead of focusing on how your new creative life differs from the old, embrace the writing season you’re in, suggests Nicole Gulotta in Wild Words: Rituals, Routines, and Rhythms for Braving the Writer’s Path.
