NaNoWriMo podcast day 30 – The End

Did you finish? I didn’t! Here’s the last episode for all you winners, and ‘losers’ too!


ISBW NaNoWriMo Special Episode 25 – When in Doubt #5 – Consume media!

Some people want to be “pure” when they write, consuming no media, and definitely not things associated with what they are writing. I say PISH TOSH.


ISBW NaNoWriMo Special Episode 24 – Should you take a day off?

It’s the holidays, things are stressful, and you might be wanting to take some time off. Should you?

And sorry about the lack of prompts for the next few eps. I didn’t have the energy and then I didn’t have the time.

Writing prompt- Monsters! Monsters, aliens, vampires, zombies, etc, they all need things to survive. Even supernaturals, if they don’t eat, they either get very cranky or very slow/sick. So if your characters comes across a monster, consider its habitat. It didn’t come to be in that room/cave/what have you just waiting for the character. It had to be eating something this time. What – or who – was it?


ISBW NaNoWriMo Special Episode 23 – Thanksgiving preparation

Sorry to international fans, we’re talking about how to get through Thanksgiving!

And sorry about the lack of prompts for the next few eps. I didn’t have the energy and then I didn’t have the time.

Writing prompt- What’s your character’s favorite holiday? And if they’re not of this earth, there should still be holidays, and which one do they prefer?


ISBW NaNoWriMo Special Episode 22 – Taking Care of Yourself

Through all this stress you need to remember to take care of yourself.

And sorry about the lack of prompts for the next few eps. I didn’t have the energy and then I didnt have the time.

Writing prompt- Think about what your character does to relax – they should have something. And then deny them that thing.


ISBW NaNoWriMo Special Episode 21 – Middles – little conflicts

Some people have trouble with middles. There are many little conflicts that are stepping stones.

No prompt in the audio, but here’s your prompt for the day: Think of five little conflicts that get in the way of your character as they work to fix the big conflict. Interpersonal clashes, a jerk on the highway, Internet going down, the priestess gets sick the night of the ritual, etc.


ISBW NaNoWriMo Special Episode 20 – When In Doubt #3 – Look into the past

Our past is what builds our characters, and if your character is feeling weak, look into what in their past made them what they are. A good flashback is 300-1000 words, easy.


ISBW NaNoWriMo Special Episode 18 – Word padding

How do you flesh out those scenes? And I forgot your wordcount, but you can see it in the footnote here.


ISBW NaNoWriMo Special Episode 16 – “Can I read what you have so far?”

Loved ones will be interested. Don’t let them derail you. Be NICE, but any comment can be disaster at this stage.
