Episode 50: Event Writing Part Three: Follow Through


Show Notes for Episode 50: Event Writing Part Three: Follow Through

The Summer of Fiction Writing has a lot of writers setting goals and beginning on their paths towards completion!  Even if you’re listening to this for NaNoWriMo, Script Frenzy, 3 Day Novel or something else, this is fully applicable.
This episode covers Follow Through, both as in finishing the even and on taking something with you.  What do you take with you after the event?  We cover that.
In this episode, Holly and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) will discuss not only how to learn from the events, but how to get “paid” by them (and we’re not talking money), how to use objective standards to view  your goals and define success as well as know if you’re on track?
We’ll also go over how to adapt goals, what “bleeding on the page” should be and should not be and how to find your sweet spot within the event.
Enjoy the final part of the three-part series, all surrounding event writing!

From Rebecca: My husband says that because I am the author of a trad pubbed poem and have written an article for our local newspaper, that I am wrong and he is correct.  His argument is based on the following and would like this to pointed out:

  1. (definition of published author)The more specific phrase published author refers to an author (especially but not necessarily of books) whose work has been independently accepted for publication by a reputable publisher, versus a self-publishing author or an unpublished one.
  2. (definition of author) a writer of a book, article, or report.
  3. be the author of (a book or piece of writing).

He has since declared this argument won by him.  *sigh*  Married life.

Episode 41: How to Build Your Writing System

Show Notes for Episode 41: How to Build Your Writing System

Holly gets asked all the time: “How do you consistently show up to work and get words on the page?”  “How do you get to the ‘butt in chair’ mindset and do it enough to create so many finished works?”  “How do you create a routine that gets you progress even on days when the last thing you want to do is write?”

This week Holly and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) go over our own writing systems and the processes we use to consistently create.  Each step will show you how to find your own way of doing things.  Holly breaks down what a writing system is into a clear, manageable sequence of tasks and ideals that will help you apply values and principles into your life to build your own writing system.

As you listen, write down your own preferences and ideas.  What would make a better environment for you?  What would help you stay consistent on an every day basis?

Episode 27: Goal Setting – and Goal KEEPING – for Writing Fiction

Show Notes for Episode 27: Goal Setting – and Goal KEEPING – for Writing Fiction

Alone in a Room with Invisible People is a podcast focusing on topics related to writing, revising and publishing fiction.

I, (host Rebecca Galardo) and Author/Teacher Holly Lisle go into Goal Setting and KEEPINGfor the fiction writer.

This is not about breaking out your planners or purchasing a $40 goal setting book or taking an expensive (or free) online course.  It’s not about vision boards or huge aspirations and big dreams coming true without knowing a single step to get there.

This is about finding the right goals, breaking those goals down, getting leverage, setting achievable targets and working towards them consistently, as well as how to reward yourself for reaching them!

When everyone is setting lofty year-end goals or scoffing at those “suckers setting New Year resolutions”, you can be mindful and strong and achieving wins from Day One.

Episode 26: Mini Episode: What if I Don’t Have Time to Write?

Show Notes for Episode 26: Mini Episode: What if I Don’t Have Time to Write?

Alone in a Room with Invisible People is a podcast focusing on topics related to writing, revising and publishing fiction.

This week I, (host Rebecca Galardo), discuss another much asked question with Author and Teacher Holly Lisle. If you’re looking for one of the most cited reasons that people use for not writing, it’s time.

Time is a precious commodity, one of the few things in life that truly cannot be replaced. There is no getting it back and so many people want to take it up. Carving out space for our passions can be difficult when it comes to daily obligations. Holly covers how to find the time in your life, but just as important, how to find the why in your life.

We take a look at the following:

  • Does anyone have more time?
  • Escapism
  • Do you really want to write?  Or is it part of an identity that no longer fits you?
  • How to make “finding time” a priority
  • What issues we faced in making time for our writing
  • What questions you need to ask yourself
