Im on one now - transitioning to being a full time writer. Loved this. I find myself wanting to know more about the many backstories you allude to but never explicitly talk about...

Hello, Reena! Thats awesome! I was going to use the example of writing on Substack - after the initial flurry of excitement, you settle down to writing, and writing more. And there are no shortcuts to producing a body of written work- very belly of the whale! Wishing you all the very best!

Re back stories- it is the internet ! I find is easier to weave those with my fiction. Im serializing my novel from mid- September and am excited about that.

Wonderful piece inspired by Campbell. Ive experienced a few bellys. Thankful to have a lull. Hubby and I always arrive early. Not just at airports. Parties too. We try to be fashionably late and always end up on time. We are at an airport now having arrived 3 hours early. Haha. We should name early people.

I know that feeling of needing a lull between changes! And yes, I tend to arrive early too. Have a great trip!

Great piece Priya. I am enjoying being taken through the different stages of Campbells heroes journey by you - you are laying out each step in a very accessible and engaging way.

Your piece got me thinking about when Ive been (and if I am currently) in the belly of the whale. And I started to wonder about whether we could be in multiple whale bellies all at once - seeing that we are on many journeys all at once... just a thought.

Thanks Priya.

Hello, Michael! That sounds so familiar- multiple journeys, multiple calls to adventure, and of course, multiple bellies! Thank you for taking the time to read and comment!
