Writer Mom Life Episode 22: Amy Hopkins and Writing Tools

>>get full show notes and a self-publishing workbook for writer moms at


Australian Amy Hopkins knows how important having writer friends is: whether it’s getting you out of a self-doubt funk or collaborating on new projects, she’s found the support she needs to help her reach her goals. We talk a little about those goals, how she sets them (hint: not 5 years in advance! Just a few months at a time), and get into discussing her current and future projects.

Amy shares:

  • What’s different about her Writer Mom Life this year
  • Why she focuses on quarterly goals
  • How she started collaborating with Michael Anderle
  • What that kind of massive collaboration project looks like (it sounds so fun!)
  • Why it’s been such a successful model for Michael (hint: it puts readers first!)
  • Why she’s doing a pen name for her next series
  • Where she found her “family” of other writers
  • What she hopes to be able to do in 3 years (not 3 months!)


In the tips, the first in a 3-part series on tools, J. R. and Daphne talk about their favorite writing tools.
