This week’s guest on the pod is TV writer & author Robert King – his latest book No One Here Is Like Me
dropped just two weeks ago. A searingly honest, hilarious, and vulnerable look into what it means to be Black (and Black-ish
) in America, Robert's memoir uses social commentary in a storytelling style that makes you feel like you’re chilling with your best friend.If your best friend was a prolific TV writer & multiracial artist (and Barack Obama gave him parenting advice.) As a television writer he knows comedy: He writes for ABC's The Chase, Leslie Jones on Supermarket Sweep, and he was one of the head writers for Hulu's Up Early Tonight, Abbi Crutchfield’s late night show. And the podcast lives up to its name in this episode (he breaks me!): Robert reveals his own book writing process while offering ME some advice on writing mine! (HINT: you don't have to do it alone ). SOME HIGHLIGHTS
- The #1 Mistake We Can Make When We Sit Down to Write
- Writers' Rooms! How to Lead with Your Voice when No One There Looks Like You
- President Obama's Parenting Advice
- How Creating Stories from Your Own Experience Attracts Abundance
This conversation is so intimate and special; I truly felt like I was sitting on the couch next to a friend. No matter what kind of creative you are – you’re going to love meeting Robert and you’ll put your earbuds down feeling inspired after listening.
