Pep Talk #4: Abigail Welhouse - No One Cares, and If They Do, It’s a Gift

Are you worried about what everyone thinks? Or you're worried that you're just doing this whole writing thing for attention? Either way, this is a fantastic pep talk from our interview with Abigail Welhouse in Episode 33. She reminds us how wonderful it is that writing can connect you with other people, and also that other people are probably not as worried about what you're doing as you think. 

These short pep talks are designed to give you a little boost of motivation or inspiration and help you along with your day and your project.

Pep Talk #6: Keep going (especially if it’s your first novel)

We didn't initially intend to share this with you guys, but Meghan's advice and thoughts were so helpful if you're doing this whole novel-writing (or anything-writing) thing for the first time. So we've recorded Olivia's question/comment to Meghan ("Should I keep doing this??") and her great response. Hopefully it gets you unstuck, or helps you keep going, too.

Episode 33: Poet and publicist Abigail Welhouse

In Episode 33, we sat down to talk to poet, book publicist and horseback riding instructor Abigail Welhouse, a great treat for April, which is National Poetry Month. Abigail is the author of Bad Baby (dancing girl press), Too Many Humans of New York (Bottlecap Press), and Memento Mori (a poem/comic collaboration with Evan Johnston), and works as a publicist at Scott Manning & Associates. She also works in a second day job for GallopNYC as a horseback riding instructor.

You can follow her by subscribing to her Secret Poems at tinyletter.com/welhouse, following her on Twitter (@welhouse), or check out her website at welhouse.nyc.

Abigail gives great tips on publicity for authors, from social media to episode 31'stheme of being open about day jobs. She's also working on a novel, so we got to circle back to our other theme of the month, revising.

We really enjoyed our talk and hope you enjoy listening!

Episode 32: Revising

In Episode 32, we talk about lots of different elements of revising. We decided to do this episode because Olivia is about to (probably) embark on a revision of her novel, and Meghan's wrapping one of hers, so she had some wise words to share. We talk about lots of stages of revising and rewriting, and we also give a shout-out to our (erm, Meghan's) favorite books about the process.

Episode 31: Working 9-5

In today's very candid episode, we discuss something that's been popping up online recently -- our pet topic and the reason for this podcast: writers' day jobs. We talk about the visible invisibility of writers' day jobs -- why writers have day jobs, and why don't they talk about them? Let us know what you think.

Episode 30: March writing prompt responses & April prompt

In Episode 30 we share our responses to the March prompt (the word "peremptory"), which gives us a chance to dig into the background of Meghan's novel's plot and also, as always, cats. Our April prompt is from the Writer Igniter segment of the DIY MFA website (diymfa.com), which we think you'll enjoy.
