This week’s guest is Amber Sillmon, a Detroit-based writer and founder of the millennial-focused newsletter, Honestly Sis. An accountant by trade, Amber listened to her inner creativity and made the bold move to write her first novel–with no formal literature training.
Amber shares what keeps her motivated, how she’s crafting her perfect writing practice, and where she learned the ins and outs of character development and storytelling. Along the way, she created a writing platform that’s reached women around the world.
In this episode, we explore what it means to trust, building community when you least expect it and why it’s important to remember that your success may not come exactly as you envisioned it.
