Kick the Imposter to the Curb: The Benefits of Allowing Who You Are as a Writer to Reflect Who You Are as a Person
Defining yourself as an author can help you stand out from the crowd, but the idea of branding can feel cold and daunting. So many writers lose themselves trying to become something else, and that leads to imposter syndrome. In this OnDemand webinar Sarah J. Sover reveals how embracing every part of who she is, not just her weird side, has helped her find success and confidence in her writing journey. Writers will learn how being true to yourself is one path to discovering who you are as a writer and bringing authenticity to your brand. When you’re not fighting to fit into a mold, everything from novel formation to marketing and outreach feels more natural.
Sarah J Sover’s debut novel, Double-Crossing the Bridge, published in 2019 by The Parliament House, became an Amazon Best Seller in humorous fantasy. Her short fiction was published in Jordan Con’s first exclusive anthology and has been accepted for the second, releasing in 2021. Sarah was featured in September 2019’s issue of Writer’s Digest in the “Breaking In” column and subsequently wrote a guest post about leaning into your weird side for WritersDigest.com. Additionally, Sarah’s background in ecology aided her in crafting multiple articles for Dan Koboldt’s Science in Science Fiction, Fact in Fantasy blog series. Sarah lives in John’s Creek, GA with her husband, two demanding little people, seemingly immortal snake, and rescue pup Gandalf the Grey. She enjoys blues dancing and a good IPA.
