You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

July 3, 2018

Whether you are writing fiction, Non-Fiction, a memoir, or are just into creative writing this is the podcast for you. This podcast is more than just about how to write as we cover the why’s, when’s, and where’s of writing. Mandra Biscornet, Shelly Devlin, and Deborah Monk discuss the how to handle all the new things you learn in the writing process! Here are some great thoughts:

  • Editing with an editor

    • The process can be over whelming
    • Be prepared to read as many as 4 lines about one of your single lines
    • They are not all going to be bad
  • Publishing
    • Should your book be” YOUR book” or should you be open to making changes suggested by the publisher?
    • What is the difference between self-publishing and hybrid publishing services?
    • How much money should you expect to spend
    • What are the ways to save money?
  • What are the channels you can go through to network with the right people to do many of the things required to put a team together if you are going down the self-publishing route?

To Be Or Not To Be That Is The Verb

To Be Or Not To Be That Is The Verb

June 26, 2018

Whether you are writing fiction, Non-Fiction, a memoir, or are just into creative writing this is the podcast for you. This podcast is more than just about how to write as we cover the why’s, when’s, and where’s of writing. Mandra Biscornet, Shelly Devlin, and Deborah Monk discuss the power of word choice. This week it’s all about the movers and shakers of the written word…The Verb! Here are some great thoughts:

  • The verbs you choose should be strong and vivid
  • Adverbs can also be replaced with powerful verbs
  • Adjectives and even Nouns can be swapped for verbs
  • “It is” and “there was” are weaker starters for sentences. Using a verb can make your sentence really pop
  • Use your verbs to show rather than tell
