Hosts: Becca Spence Dobias & Christopher Lee

Guests: J. Danielle Dorn & Tahani Nelson

Welcome to the Writing Bloc Podcast where we talk all things writing and indie publishing. In today's episode we talk with authors J. Danielle Dorn and Tahani Nelson about writing and mental health.  We'll talk about how mental health impacts our writing process, how our experiences make their way into our writing, and discuss our feelings about the 'tortured artist' trope.

Also, listen to find out why we may owe J. Danielle Dorn's grandmother an apology.


Subscribe to hear our future episodes - including our upcoming one on Writing and Mental Health. We have some great topics in the pipeline and our goal is to release a new episode every other Tuesday.
