It’s the final episode of Season 2 and 2014, so I reflect on my writing life this year: what was good, what was bad, and the in-between stuff as well as how I did on my 2014 goals. I also share the list of top five (or so) episodes of […]
For today’s episode, after a slightly long bit of news and notes, I break from the original planned topic of the editing process to share some of the podcasts I listen to and the blogs I regularly follow.
As promised, today’s episode is taking a look at Aisuru’s failed PubSlush campaign and contemplating what I think I did wrong and my future thoughts on the concept. There are also a few quick updates on Aisuru’s road to publication!
It’s NaNo wrap up time! For this episode, I talk about how I did with this year’s National Novel Writing Month, what I learned about myself, what I love about Duality, and evaluate what I did wrong and right as I went through the month.
Next to the last of the NaNo episodes for this year, and I start by yapping about our wacky weather again before getting to the important stuff, like how I kicked butt this week and got caught up on my NaNo novel. Yeah baby! And, because the episode ended up […]
Week two of NaNo is in the bag! After whining about the cold a bit, I talk about my decision to cancel Aisuru’s crowdfunding campaign, the increase in my website traffic, introduce Aisuru’s new editor, and (of course) give an update on my NaNo progress. Spoiler alert, I’m still behind!

Then I talk about the WordPress situation some more and my continued indecision on the editing choice, particularly […]
Episode 45 is now available for you to listen to! Episode Notes: First of the NaNo episodes – which will be short and primarily giving updates about Aisuru, the PubSlush campaign, and my NaNo progress; similar to an Extempore episode only with a NaNo bend Got a new microSD card […]
Essentially this one is a two-for-one deal, because it’s practically two episodes in one! For the first chunk (about 40 minutes or so), it’s all about giving you updates on Aisuru. A ton of stuff is happening really fast, including Aisuru being off to editors for samples/quotes. The big news […]
For the next segment of prepping for NaNo, it’s time to talk characters! The best stories have well-developed major characters, so today I talk about some of the things that makes for compelling characters, why its important to know your characters well, and ways to get to know (and thus […]
