This episode is a chat with bestselling author Professor Richard Wiseman. You may have read his fascinating non-fiction books :59 SECONDS, THE LUCK FACTOR, NIGHT SCHOOL, or indeed his latest, SHOOT FOR THE MOON, about the thinking that got us to the moon and how we can apply it in our own lives. We chat about how he got into writing, how his manages his schedule, how to overcome creative fear, and how to capture ideas when they occur to you. If you'd like to check out his latest, SHOOT FOR THE MOON (which I think I accidentally call 'The Apollo Mindset' in my intro - sorry, I'm poorly, my brain's in bits!), here it is: https://wordery.com/shoot-for-the-moon-richard-wiseman-9781787474437#oid=1908_1 I'd also recommend THE LUCK FACTOR: https://wordery.com/the-luck-factor-richard-wiseman-9780099443247#oid=1908_1 If you'd like to support me, the podcast and all the things I'm putting out into the world, if you like what I do and would like me to do more of it, and if you'd like to be the first to read my brand new novel, please help me by pre-ordering a copy of THE ICE HOUSE.
