Shifting Thoughts and Rattling Cages With Dr. Bridget Cooper

May 15, 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. This week Shelly Devlin, Deborah Monk, and Mandra Biscornet interview Dr. Bridget Cooper about her work as a public speaker and author of “Power Play” and “StuckU.”. As passion goes her cup is full as well as being the queen of one liners that make you think “What I charge has little to do with what I am worth” and “If you are judging me you either need more information or you need a hug and I will give you both!” are two examples. She discusses one of the many benefits of self-publishing. It takes the judgement of your marketability out of someone else’s hands and puts the future of your outcome in your own.

Writing Your Way To Public Speaking

May 8, 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. This week Shelly Devlin, Deborah Monk, and Mandra Biscornet discuss ways to parlay your writing into paid speaking engagements. One great example of this is Bridget Cooper who will be on the show live next week also Iyanla Vanzant takes things to the next level, she doesn’t just speak she puts on a performance! Being a speaker makes you an authority on the subject in the eyes of the public.  Who gets to keep the money on the speaking engagements? Could this be a different stream of income? Deb needs people to vote for which of her book covers they like the best.

Two Authors Attend Two Writing Conferences

May 1, 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. This week Shelly Devlin is away so Deborah Monk and Mandra Biscornet interview each other about two separate writing conferences they each attended. Deborah attended Romance Writers of America while Mandra was at Harvard’s Writing, Publishing, and Social Media for Health Care Professionals Conference.  Join or form your own writer’s group, read books in your genre, and make writing a habit are just some of the takeaways from this weekend.  When you go to a conference you should not only have your elevator pitch written but you should also have it rehearsed so you can deliver it in an actual elevator! All this and more on this week’s episode of The Writer’s Block Podcast recorded at the Studio 21 Podcast Café and hosted on the United Podcast Network.

The Pantser Vs The Plotter

The Pantser Vs The Plotter

April 17, 2018

Mandra Biscornet, Deborah Monk, and Shelly Devlin discuss the difference between plotters and pantsers. Plotters plan first and write second whereas Pantsers just write and see where the story goes in real time. John Grisham and JK Rowling are well-known plotters. Steven King and Margret Atwood are great examples of pantsers. What are the pros and cons of each? Which one are you? Can you be both? Are you writing in the form that is right for you? All this and more on this week’s episode of The Writer’s Block Podcast recorded at the Studio 21 Podcast Café and hosted on the United Podcast Network.
