Writer Mom Life Episode 12: Katharine Grubb and Healthy Habits for Writers


Katharine Grubb is the founder of the Facebook group "10-minute Novelist", which provides support and encouragement to beginning and emerging writers. For writer moms, 10 minutes is about all you have sometimes! Katharine has some amazing tips and wisdom from her years as a hybrid author and homeschooling mother of 5 kids. Now she’s pulling back to focus more on her health, the joy of writing, and spending time with her family.  

  • There’s a lot of great information packed into this interview, such as:
  • How she started and grew her group to over 10,000 members
  • How the group has evolved and how her 20+ volunteer staff helps her
  • The importance of organizing your life so that you can make the most of those 10 minutes to write (and maybe find more than 10 minutes!)
  • Her experience getting a book deal through her blog
  • Her shifting definitions of success that led her to pull back more this year to focus on what really matters
  • The typical day in the life of her family of 7
  • Why exercise is getting priority over writing time
  • The danger of comparing your life to others
