Hi. I’m … volunteering to be a creative writing coach on my new podcast, “Getting the Words Out”.

On Reddit and on other writing forums, I keep finding the same questions from new writers, wanna-be writers, and writers who are just plain stuck:

  • Where do the best ideas come from?
  • Is my character okay?
  • Is my plot too close to another plot?
  • How much setting is enough?
  • When do I rewrite?
  • Here is my first thousand-word chunk… feedback please?
  • How do I find my voice?
I think I have answers for those questions and many more.

I’ve been writing creatively since I could sign my name. I finally had a creative writing class or two in my college years, and I've been scribbling ever since. Even if you, as a frustrated writer, found a creative writing class would it really help you? Probably. But it one available? I’ve thought long and hard about the creative process over the years. Creativity is something I’m fairly handy with. No, I don’t have anything published. The lack of published titles only says that I sometimes don’t finish what I’ve started before starting another project. Once I know how the ending of my story is going to work out, I really don’t have much energy to keep working on the story. The puzzle, being solved, goes back up on the shelf to finish on another day that has not yet dawned.

Writers are sorcerers. They conjure entire worlds, people and emotions out of little squiggles and specks of black. I think William Stafford summed it up very well, “A writer is not so much someone who has something to say as he is someone who has found a process that will bring about new things he would not have thought of if he had not started to say them.”

There is magic is in your words. Let me help you get the words out!

Episode Two is a discussion of different ways that people try to write and how I think it can be improved. There’s a writing prompt in this episode and I plan to follow suit in most episodes moving forward.

Episode Three - Why does Bunny have a dagger in her tutu? Good question! This episode explains how I do journaling – writing backstories for people I see anywhere, and a writing prompt I hope you enjoy!
