Mystery writers Laurie Fagen and Cheryl Cocroft join the Curious Kirby team in the Zoom studio for a dynamic discussion about multi-tasking versus time management, project management versus visualization, and outlining versus flying by the seat of one's pants. The values and practices of these creatives are a joy to learn about - picture Laurie as the consummate juggler and Cheryl keenly focused with creative writing flowing from her fingertips. What can we learn from how they do what they do?
