Writer Craft Podcast Blog – Building A Writing Community

No comments

On this week’s episode of “Writer Craft Podcast” Valerie and I discuss an important issue: writing community.

Over the last few weeks, I had a conversation with friend and writing colleague Eric Witchey. Among the many topics we covered were the rise of artificial intelligence, receiving high end Scotch as gifts, and establishing a writing community in the time of COVID.

Of course we went there. Now, Valerie and go there too, talking about the importance of cultivating your writing community even though in-person events remain on hold. Boo Covid, am I right?

On a personal note, I’m launching into the writing of a new screenplay entitled “Hand Writing”. 

My co-host, Valerie, updated everyone on her transition from holiday hours at the bookstore back to full-time writingwriter craft podcast

Writer Craft Podcast Blog – How To Do Resolutions?

No comments

On this week’s episode of “Writer Craft Podcast” Valerie and I are keeping up with the end-of-year vibes. We talk about creative resolutions, what we think is effective, what is not, and how we make them.

If you’re looking at making a change in your practice next year, give it a listen. 

On a personal note, I’m taking the last few weeks of the year to look at my author/ghostwriting business in a broad sense. Call it my time to work on resolutions.

What’s working? What isn’t? Most importantly, of course, I’m trying to focus on what I can do differently.

Also, I’m reading Larry McMurtry’s “Last Kind Words Saloon” which is, unfortunately, a real snoozer. 

My co-host, Valerie, updated everyone on her year end process. Most importantly in that update is news around the second annual Writer Craft retreat. Apparently, those discounted tickets won’t last forever.resolutions

Writer Craft Podcast – Introducing Your New Co-Host

No comments

The “Writer Craft Podcast” is one of those true diamonds in the rough. It is a writer-focused podcast that not only touches on the craft of writing but the mindset necessary to improve and advance in your career.

Recently, long time podcast host Valerie Ihsan, an old friend from Willamette Writers, asked if I would like to join as her as a co-host. Of course I jumped at the opportunity to talk writing on a regular basis with her.

In this, our first episode together, Valerie interviews me. I talk about my work as a ghostwriter and editor, while sharing some updates on my author business as well as my recently self-published paranormal mystery novel, “Permanent Shadows” which is available on Amazon.
