It's Wednesday, so that means time for our weekly writing podcast! Today's episode was suggested by listener Marty Vee. Apologies for taking so long before we got to this topic. Marty's question was: "What Do You Do When You Hit A Roadblock In Your Novel?"
As we say goodbye to 2020, and welcome 2021 with open arms, we use this time to look ahead for what we want from this brand-spanking new year! And with that in mind, we ask: "What Are Your Goals For 2021?"
This is the last podcast episode of 2020 and it's a nice round number! (seriously, we never planned it like that which makes it all the more awesome!) We decided that since this was our 40th episode and the last one of the year, that we'd share some of our bloopers! I do say some because we made SO many! Big thanks to my partner in crime, Rachel who not only suggested this episode but them sorted all the bloopers herself as I was dealing with family/house stuff. She did a great job!! Without further ado, we give you: "2020 Bloopers"
With Christmas just around the corner we decided to make this episode a little different. We're ditched the writerly questions and are doing: Christmas Tag Edition
Today on The Merry Writer Podcast, we are doing another marketing episode and are asking the question: "Are You a Marketing Newbie or a Marketing Newbie?"
Let's be honest, we all have a favourite part to write when drafting our stories. Whether that's the dialogue, decorative description, fight scenes etc, there is something that we get excited to write. So today, we are asking the question: "What Is Your Favourite Part To Write?"
Today Rachel and I discuss which method we prefer... hand writing, typing or using speech to text. "Which method of writing do you prefer?"
Fear is a natural emotion and we are often taught, almost from birth that failure is bad. This leads us to often have a crippling fear of failure that can stop us from taking risks or trying new things. Today we address this issue by asking: "How Do You Deal With The Fear Of Failure?"
Since tomorrow is International Men's Day, we decided to give the podcast a nod to men by discussing... "How to write Male Characters"
It had to happen, we just had to get around to discussing that frustrating affliction I unaffectionaly call "Creative Constipation." Yes, on today's podcast Rachel and I asked the question: "How do you overcome writers' block"
