SSP079 Celebrating Your Accomplishments
In indie publishing, there’s a tendency to rapid churn. Once one book is out to the races, the next one immediately begins. This is a pace that Sterling and Stone isn’t immune to. And though a prolific output of fiction is a primary goal of our studio, it’s important for us to slow down and celebrate our victories. Today we talk about why acknowledging your accomplishments is healthy for your creative spirit.
We Talk About:
Johnny is recording the non-fiction audiobooks he’s writing.
Dave’s AC died and he’s been miserable. On top of that, Dave has a hurricane to endure.
Sean is enjoying Euphoria (https://www.hbo.com/euphoria).
Johnny is watching the Spike Lee MasterClass (https://www.masterclass.com/classes/spike-lee-teaches-filmmaking).
Dave’s reluctance to celebrate.
The importance of taking the time to celebrate.
The #dailyfuckyeah channel in our company Slack.
Johnny’s celebration habits.
Acknowledgment as a celebration.

This is a book about how Dave understands darkness, its place in story, and how I make dark fiction that people enjoy reading. And, at its heart, this book isn’t just about the dark, but also the light. And in our darkest times, it’s more important than ever that we hold onto the light. But first, we must be willing to explore the darkness: https://sterlingandstone.net/book/into-the-darkness/
