Episode 28: Jon the writer

Episode 28: Jon the writer

Jon Storm is many things…a mechanic, a father, an avid cyclist, a man’s man and, more recently, a writer. He found his way to translating feelings into words with such meaning they are felt and understood deeply by those who read them. His pieces are both simple and powerful. Jon has a keen sense of clearing away the distractions and getting right to the heart of deep, emotional life experiences. His nearly 250,000 followers on Instagram and other social media channels can attest to the connection they feel when reading his posts.

Our conversation explores:

  • How he began writing (clue: it’s only been 2 years)
  • Why writing forces the truth
  • Social media as a channel for artistic expression
  • How to deal with negative comments, and of course, the joy of the positive connections
  • On writing daily and when to take a break
  • His vintage typewriter and how it changed his writing approach
  • Being quoted on Word Porn
  • His new book (yes! there’s a book coming out soon!)
  • Keeping the focus on the work, not the outcome
  • How the universe whispered to him
