An Interview with Writer Ian Blake Newhem - Artsy Fartsy Things & Stuff! - EP# 06

Welcome to the sixth episode of “Artsy Fartsy Things and Stuff”, a conversational interview podcast about creative amazing people, doing creative amazing things…and stuff!

What would you do, if you were a professional writer, diagnosed with a brain tumor smack dab in the middle of the language processing center of your brain? What would you if a knowable early deadline was placed on your ability to achieve your creative dreams?

Well, that’s just what happened to my friend “Ian Blake Newhem”, a brilliant and successful professional writer for decades, whose career trajectory was detailed when an unwanted roommate decided to move into is brain. So rather than pack it in, he decided to push himself to his creative limits and write 12 books in 12 months before he is unable to write ever again!

Please enjoy this rollercoaster of a conversation, we dig into how he is moving forward with his project after being detailed with a global pandemic, the value of art and overcoming fears that threaten to kill the creative spirit!
