39 - Mindset with Author Chris Fox

I idolize what this writer does, so it was an honor to get to chat with Chris Fox. He comes on to talk about something very empowering (to all of us, writers or not), that can change our lives.

You can find his work at http://www.chrisfoxwrites.com. He also mentions the book, "Mindset," by Dr....


38 - Cocky with Author Kevin Kneupper

What is #cockygate? What's the controversy? 'Cocky' is 'just' a word, after all, isn't it? Writer/screenwriter/lawyer Kevin Kneupper filed a Cancel Petition with the Trademark office & comes on the show to talk about why this is a situation, why writers (and readers) should care, and what he's doing to help us. Note to Horrible Writing fans: this is a SPECIAL episode and does not follow the typical theme of the show. Please support Kevin for the good work he's doing for the community....

Two listener emails discussed themes central to the community, so I address why a healthy community can be the difference for a writer. Pre-order "Chasing the Demon." Join the official Facebook Group. Peace, Paul


36 - Motherhood with Lorna Rose

Poet Lorna Rose comes on the show to talk about how becoming a mother changed her writing life. We discuss things like balancing parenthood with the itch to writing, when real life creates other demands. Please check out her work (http:www.lornarose.com) and her Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/bigthings2). I'd love the Horrible Writing community to help me launch my own published author career now that "Chasing the Demon" is available for pre-order on Amazon. Order your copy...


35 - Clever Writing, Not So Much

Don't try to outsmart yourself in your writing. Trust me. I'm not as clever as I pretend to believe I think I may be. Also, Chasing the Demon, is available for pre-order on Amazon and I've sold copies ... so that makes me an AUTHOR! Need to change the show tags now!

26 - Writing Will Not Save You with Kay Kenyon

I met Kay at two writer's conferences last year and was so impressed by her. To be able to get her on the show was an awesome experience for me, and a timely topic too. Are you seeking fulfillment and happiness through writing? I sure am. So you may need to be willing to have your heart broken. You may need to learn to identify when you're life is imbalanced. Kay shares tips for restoring balance, looking for the true you, and answers whether or not the writing struggle gets easier...


25 - It's Okay to be You

In this new episode, I talk about my recent experience at a conference and how it led me down a path to analyze (and question) how much I'm willing to invest in my writing. It was an insightful journey and I share it with you in hopes that it helps you prepare when doubt inevitably creeps into your brain.
