Why You Need a Passion Project

No matter how much you love being a career author, you will definitely need a break from the work at one time or another. It’s easy to cram writing and marketing into the few available hours you might have and it’s hard to walk away when you’re the only one managing your time.

J. and Zach have an open and honest conversation about the role of passion projects and hobbies in their lives and businesses. J. spent a year developing a new podcast that culminated in a collaboration with his son during the pandemic lockdown as well as reconnecting with an old band mate.

The Career Author Podcast is a podcast where co-authors J. Thorn and Zach Bohannon share their struggles and successes as full-time authors, advice for improving your writing craft, and honest discussions of what it takes to build a successful career as an author.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The importance of filling the creative well
  • Why it’s important to get back to nature
  • What will happen if you ignore your physical health
  • How hobbies can improve mental clarity and capacity
  • Why you have to tend to your relationships
  • How hobbies can possibly be monetized
  • How you can apply what you’ve learned on passion projects to your writing or business

Also, J. discusses a coffee alternative that’ll help clear your head and defeat that caffeine addiction.
