In reading a book on luck, I had an epiphany not on luck, but on procrastination. I explore the reason why we may avoid writing, and then I talk to G. S. Denning, author of the Warlock Holmes series.

I have one resolution this year, and that's to get bored more often. Also, I talk fears, and NBC's The Good Place. I was supposed to have an interview but I just discovered it's crap and I have to re-record. Sorry about that.

ISBW #383: Point of View // Beth Cato Interview

9/14/2017
More
I discuss the power of point of view and how it makes us sympathize with characters, what the different words (protagonist, antagonist) means, and reference a bunch of books and movies. Then I talk to Beth Cato. AND GUESS WHAT? You can WIN Beth Cato's books! All you have to do is email me and I'll do a random drawing on the next ISBW, but I'd really appreciate it if you spread the word on social media too.

WHY should you follow all those writing rules? These are the "story structure" and "no adverbs" and "Give your characters something to do" rules. Can't we all just break the rules and run amok? It's the digital age, we can do what we want!

I'm coming out of depression land and straight into the crazy that is August that is travel and WorldCon. So here is the podcast for the week of July 24, and the podcast for the week of August 7 is already queued. (Only I say it's for August 14 because calendars are hard) Books mentioned: Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too by Jomny Sun

ISBW #379: Those Down Days

7/12/2017
More
The bad thing about being on a regular recording schedule again is I have to podcast even when I don't feel like it. So sometimes it's just about the mental health. This is a short, low energy podcast, but I'm really fine, trust me. Just had a bad start to the week with migraine and super low energy. I'm doing much better now, but figured I should post this because I try to be honest with the look inside a writer's life, and sometimes there are days like this. Mentioned: The War of Art.
