Episode 9: Ayanna Gaines and making space for creativity | Setting Nanowrimo goals

Today, we talk to librarian Ayanna Gaines about reconnecting with her creative side, balancing work and writing, and how she sets up her space to nurture her art. We also chat National Novel Writing Month, and Olivia helps Meghan figure out how to set her Nano goals.

Ayanna Gaines is a librarian and pop culture geek in Southern California. She’s just made the switch from academia to public libraries and is reconnecting with her creative writing side. She writes poetry and is hard at work on her first novel. You can find her and her adorable kittens on Twitter @popcullibrn or Instagram @againeslibrarian

Episode 8: It’s scary (for us)

In this episode, we do the scariest thing we could imagine: we share really raw drafts with you, and we do a mini-critique on them. We'd love it if you would join in next time - or even this time, now that we've done this to break the ice. Please feel free to send us your responses to the writing prompt, which was:

Your boss calls you into their office and closes the door. What happens next?

In addition, Meghan shares an epiphany, which also prompts Olivia to consider a new motto.

Episode 7: Keeping it Real

We’re keeping it real this week. Really real – all about how you keep going when your work is busy, or you’re just not feeling it, or you’re tired. (Don’t worry, it’s not whiny.)

Have a question you’d like us to try to answer, or a topic you’d love to have us cover? Interested in being a guest? Contact us here, or send an email to podcast [at] marginallypodcast.com. Thanks for listening, and keep up the good work!

Episode 6: Mini-episode with updates + writing prompt (and cats)

It's our first mini-episode! We'll bring you these update/writing exercise mini-eps every other week. Let us know what you think!

This week, we catch up on what we did this week, and share clips from the off-podcast voice memos we send each other most days. We've been doing this since midsummer, and find it's a great way to keep our writing partnership close and maintain momentum. Plus, it's fun. We cover all the fun stuff -- yoga, plotting, cheating yourself, cats, bad moods, day job pressures, and creating anxiety.
