Keep Going: How a writer figured out how to make a life instead of a living

"The artist's life is a way to make a life, not a living."

Samuel Lopez-Barantes, a novelist and musician living in Paris, discusses his perspective on success and failure in the creative world. He highlights the difference between the American and French attitudes towards art and how it is valued. Samuel shares his philosophy on success, which is centered around finishing a project and moving on to the next one. He also talks about his journey as a writer and the importance of recognizing what makes you tick and structuring your life around it. Samuel emphasizes the need to prioritize time over money and to be conscious of how you spend both.

You can buy his new book on his website.
