I’ve been writing creatively for decades. Now that I’m semi-retired it seems easier to actually get it done. My problem isn’t that I’m blocked creatively – I just find it difficult to finish projects. Anyway – I’ve started a podcast to talk through some of the things I’ve learned along the way.
Struggling writers have many questions and hopefully I’m providing some answers from my own experience. Many podcasts talk about editors, agents, publishing, self-pub, and on and on but are there any other podcasts that help you get the words out so that you have something to show to agents or publish? You’ve gotta get the words out before you need any of that stuff, right?
- Why you get stuck
- How to get started
- Is my character good enough?
- Is my plot too close to somebody else?
- How do I motivate my character?
I’m talking about all of the fears, shortcomings, and misdirected short cuts that trip people. up. Every episode will have a hand crafted writing prompt that will give you plenty to think about! The first episode will hit in July 2022!
UPDATE 1 July 2022: The first two episodes are now live on Apple, Spotify and Google – as soon as the interwebs does all of its updates.
