Episode 46: Muse Toys – How to Connect with your Muse


Show Notes for Episode 46: Muse Toys – How to Connect with your Muse

What does fighting space pirates have to do with connecting to your Muse?  How about climbing on top of a car?  And why would you even do that?  How about “guilty pleasure” tv, films or music?

In today’s episode, author and teacher Holly Lisle and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) talk about how we connect with our Muses, what kind of tools are in our different toolboxes and how everything above helps us create new stories, work out story twists, break past those places where we’re ‘stuck’ in the writing and more.  We talk about where ideas come from and how to make your own Muse happy.

Oh, and here is the picture I spoke of in the episode:

Best. Geocache. Ever.

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 35: Competition VS Cooperation Between Writers

Show Notes for Episode 35: Competition VS Cooperation Between Writers

Scathing crits, passive aggressive comments from a ‘friend’ or mean-spirited reviews can all rile us up.  But what exactly is behind a lot of this?

The desire to destroy others.

In this episode Holly delves deep into the ever-present ‘elephant in the industry’ and sets forth her flag in the underground fight for bringing other novelists and writers up – supporting them as your people instead of looking at them as a stepping stone from which to reach the top.

Many writers are out there fighting the good fight for themselves and each other.  Join us.  Be a part of the solution and keep readers coming back for more.

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.
