This is the episode to listen to, if you feel trapped in a job and want to hear about creative courage paying off beautifully. Micah's story is one of guts, grit and fantasy fiction. I've been privileged to get a front row seat of his story - he's a great friend and someone that consistently encourages me to do the creative work, I find hard to reach. Micah's experienced a ton of change and challenges - from breaking out of hum-drum 9 to 5, to published author. I like to remind Micah he's taken on the marathon running of creativity - writing and breathing life into rich and mythic worlds that are vivid and aching to be seen on screen. Both his books took very different time frames to write - Lost Gods was 12 years in the making and Pale Kings done in 5 months. His first novel, Lost Gods, was a Brave New Words finalist, and also nominated for a British Fantasy Award.
If you've enjoyed any of these episodes or think a conversation on courage would help a friend, I'd appreciate a review. It takes less than 30 seconds and can really boost the chances of Call On Courage being discovered by others. Thanks so much 🙏🏻
