Mark Fitzpatrick Overnight Success that takes 20 years

In today's episode I'm talking to Mike Fitzpatrick about his book that his just been published. We talk about becoming an overnight success 20 years in the making.

We also talk about the hero’s journey versus the carrier bag theory, we mention Ursula Le Guin, Jordan Peterson and being on a solitary writers retreat and what effect that can have.

We talk about the first technology, which is not what we think first-hand, but involves weaving. we also cover, men, women and chainsaws and mistakes in classic songs and of course, important to all creatives, how to like your own work.

It's a brilliant conversation as always with Mark and for further details of his work follow this link
