I first heard of Shawn Smucker when one of my friends came home from the Festival of Faith and Writing and said, “Steve. I got to meet SHAWN. SMUCKER.” My friend then went on to gush hard core. And the guy that was gushing is a phenomenal writer himself. I honestly hadn’t heard of Shawn, but that changed quickly. Shawn is a gorgeous writer, who has written quite a few books, including Building a Life Out of Words, which tells the story of when he quit his job and started writing full time. He’s currently writing a novel (I am terrified of writing fiction), and he talks about it on the podcast. If you are a writer, or want to be a writer, or simply love words, you’re going to love this conversation. Music on today’s episode is from Sara Groves (song: My Dream).
Enjoy the podcast.
Oh, and hey, I’ve started a Patreon Page, which is soooo fun. Every patron gets the first two chapters of my new book immediately, and those who pledge at higher levels will get exclusive weekly content from me, signed books with a personal note from me, and other surprises. Please go check it out!
I host a weekly podcast. I wrote a book. I have a website. I am the pastor at a great little church. I am sometimes available to travel to hang with your tribe to help you all become more you. And yes, I do Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Oh, and if you’d like to stay up to date with my writing and events and such, you can subscribe to my email list. There. We’re all caught up.
