Episode 97 – Juggling Multiple Projects

During this episode, Lucinda and Mariëlle talk about the multiple (creative) projects they are juggling and how that affects Lucinda’s writing and Mariëlle’s sanity.

Here are some of the topics that came up:

  • Lucinda talks about the multiple projects she juggles in life generally, which all impact her writing
  • Mariëlle talks about the many nonfiction projects she currently has deadlines for, which kind of has her admit she’s been pushing it too far
  • How Mariëlle has grown over the years in that she’s gotten better at saying ‘No’ to things that simply don’t resonate with her
  • That not all (day) jobs and responsibilities are created equally and that they all affect what we are able to take on extra differently
