It’s Day 2 of National Novel Writing Month! Have you been able to hit your daily writing targets? If so, congratulations.
It’s Day One of National Writing Month! Are you excited to start? Did you stay up till midnight last night to start writing? In this episode I give suggestions on what activities you might want to consider giving up for the month of November to help you achieve your 50,000 words. Plus some things I think you shouldn’t give up, not even for NaNoWriMo.
Today’s episode is outlining. This is not a lesson on how to outline, no. But I do try to argue the merits of outlining, and how a pantser (like me!) can ease into the process of working from an outline.
Today we talk about point of view (POV) in novel writing. Not all types of POVs because I only know so much, and we don’t want this episode to run for hours.
In the first episode of #NaPodWriMo, I talk about genre. And also possibly ninjas in regency romance novels.
For reasons I will explain in this episode, I’m not doing #NaNoWriMo this year. But I am doing #NaPodWriMo. What is it? Listen and find out.
As many of you know, I publish stories on the Radish fiction app. It’s relatively new, just a little over a year old. So it’s not too surprising that some of you aren’t that familiar with how to navigate your way through it. Take heart, my dear readers. Not only is Radish exceedingly easy (and fun!) to use, but I’ve made a helpful tutorial video that might be of help.
I don’t have a video of me on my panel (“Writing Online: Challenges and Advantages”), but I did manage to record a short video of another discussion panel. This is the steamy romance authors panel with Mina V. Esguerra, Jennifer Hallock, Georgette Gonzales, and Bianca Mori.
What better time to have a book convention for romance readers than in February, right? If you love books about love, join me and other romance authors and readers at the Philippine Romance Convention 2017 on February 19, 2017 at the Activity Center of the Alabang Town Center mall in Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila. The convention will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Writing is hard sometimes, and for me, I kinda need all the help I can get. As with most writers, I learned writing from reading. However, it’s always great to hear from actual professional writers who want to share their knowledge and experiences with others. While blogs and writing books are fine, I’ve always enjoyed podcasts about writing. Here are some of the writing podcasts I listen to that discuss the craft of writing.
