GRIT + PEARL is a series of love letters to all the gritty, imperfect things that go into crafting a story, building a book, and creating yourself as an author. Along with updates on Ryan La Sala and his projects, each letter includes thoughts, tips & tricks on making peace with:
Envy | Gossip | Competing | Giving Up | Procrastinating | Drafting | Starting | Spite | Revising | Querying | Pitching | Waiting | Timidity | Fear | Inadequacy | Homophobic idiots | Networking
& more! Read along, commiserate, and get back to creating pearls.
And don't forget to tell your friend! That one who needs a lot of frank advice, but you can't give it to them because then they might not be your friend anymore after.
