ISBW #360: Level up! Plus Dan Koboldt Interview

I’ve leveled up as a writer, and I interview Dan Koboldt, author of The Rogue Retrieval. We also talk about the online writing workshops, OWW and Critters.


ISBW #358 – Periscope test

And I talk about writing rules. Do you REALLY have to write every day? Avoid adverbs? Is it do or do not, there is no middle ground?

I recorded this live on Periscope. It’s short, but I’ll be back soon with MOAR.

(Good lord has it been two months? Shame. SHAME. But then I was supposed to have a tea party with Failure, and accept it happens, so I’m accepting this failure and then moving on. I should probably do an episode on the tea with failure.)

ISBW #357: Anniversary // Raven Oak Interview

11 years ago today, I tried a thing called “podcasting.”

It’s gone OK since then. Stuff has happened. It’s been neat.

I also talk to Raven Oak, one of the authors in the Joy to the Worlds anthology, out now!

ISBW #354: NaNoWriMo Primer 2

PrintIt’s NaNoWriMo day! Here’s a special episode for you: if the haters make you hesitate on whether you should do this or not, then listen to this episode. Also, there’s some feedback at the end!

I recorded it a little over a week ago, before my vacation, hence the time lag.

In case you don’t know, I am doing a daily show for my Patreon supporters. All you have to do is support at $1 a month and you can get a daily audio or video note from me! If you’re not up for a dollar, then you can look into the past episodes about NaNoWriMo where I discuss advice, tools, and more. Note – one of my favorite tracking tools has been updated! Check out Susanna’s Pacemaker! Here’s a link to my daily goals, with consideration to write less on the weekends.

Today’s podcast brought to you by ISBW Hall of Famer Ben Seims! This month’s theme song is by John Anealio!
