When asked about her struggles with writing and how she plans to overcome them Author Negeen Papehn had this to say:

My biggest struggle with writing is juggling life along with it. I am a wife, mom of two, dentist, and a writer. I have one son with Crohn’s disease and another that battles anxiety. My book launch is in two months, and I’m clueless about marketing! A technical aspect of writing that I struggle with would be Grammar. I am not strong in the technicalities of writing, I don’t have time to hone my talent like I should. I just write and somehow it works. When I find myself struggling I turn my time towards research.ย  I try to find the answers I need to help with the technical crafting of my manuscript. This does slow me down as I am writing. So right now I am struggling to fit it all in, which is driving me crazy and stressing me out.

  1. Thanks for bringing this spotlight, Deedra! Great write up! (and thanks for liking so many of my posts ๐Ÿ˜› )

    To be able to write while holding such a demanding job, and while having kids who need that extra care is more than admirable. Congrats Negeen on your accomplishments! Truly inspiring!
