14 | Maggie Shipstead: The Creative Freedom To Get It Wrong... and Right!

Maggie Shipstead is an NYT-Bestselling author of three novels - Seating Arrangements, Astonish Me, and Great Circle (on many best-of lists for 2021) and her work has won a laundry list of awards. She's also written essays and travel articles like her piece for Modern Love. And like all of us, Maggie has to begin again, face the blank page, and watch projects die.

Maggie's newest novel "Great Circle" follows pilot Marian Graves who will take to the sky and circumnavigate the globe at all costs - and isn't that so much like the creative process?

In this interview, we discuss:

- How to make choices in our creative work

- Enjoying the experience of creating

- What tools and software Maggie uses to write

- The "money" conversation

- The places Maggie loves to write

- How Maggie's travels have inspired her work
