How do I know I’ve chosen the Right Career? E5

In this episode, I briefly discuss a quote that I found relevant to the field. Here is the link: https://authorreneemiller.com/2017/03/13/how-to-be-a-writer-not-a-tool/

I also do not have a book review for this episode because I SUCK. But, I’m working on reading through a book for next week’s episode, and I’ve gotten more writing done in the last couple weeks than probably in the last year combined. So, I slacked on the READING part of Read to Write and excelled at the Writing part. You win some, you lose some 🙂

Lastly, I discuss how I came to the conclusion that I made the right choice of being a writer, some insights on how to know whether you are cut out for writing professionally, and how to know when a work is publishable (which isn’t really advice, but pointing you all to a direction where you can find assistance.)

Thank you!

You Don’t Need Angst to Be a Good Writer E3

EPISODE THREE: You Don’t Need Angst to Be a Writer

In this episode, I talk about suffering and creativity, I review Brunonia Barry’s The Lace Reader and take some lessons about writing from it, and I talk about the best way to enhance your writing. (Hint, the best way to enhance your writing is NOT to be an intrinsically sad person.)


Grammar as Part of the Art Form E2

EPISODE TWO: Grammar as Part of the Art Form

In this episode, I discuss the trend of writers refusing to learn or use proper grammar or techniques because they are able to pay editors to fix the issues with their work.

I also include some learning points from a book review on Asimov’s Foundation, and I include a couple helpful quotes on creativity and writer focus.


Imposter Syndrome E1

EPISODE ONE: Imposter Syndrome

For all my fellow writers and artists, here’s a podcast that tackles the disease called “Imposter Syndrome.” If you’ve ever doubted yourself, hated yourself, told yourself that you’d never be good enough to see or deserve success, then this podcast is for you. I include an extremely inadequate book reference and some other rambling.
