Episode 37: Summer Announcements and Goals Review

In this episode, we have a couple of big announcements. We're wrapping up our regular shows for a few months to take the summer off.

Don't worry, we'll still be bringing you some delightful interviews - that we've already recorded - each month this summer. But we won't be doing any more weekly episodes until September.

We're also ending the writing prompt series for now, but will keep thinking about other ways to share. 

Finally, we check in with how we are doing about our goals and what our summers are going to look like. We'd love to hear your plans for the summer, too.

Episode 36: Writer and teacher Jess Lahey of #AmWriting

We interviewed Jessica Lahey, a teacher, writer and co-host from the wonderful #AmWriting podcast. Jess talked us through how keeping her day job keeps her writing and ideas fresh, the difficulties of writing when she's on the road on speaking tours. She gives some good tips on how to balance speaking gigs and freelance work, should you be looking to go that direction. And she has great advice on being kind to yourself and living a writing life, and the importance of writing friendships.

You can find Jess at jessicalahey.com, on her publisher Harper Collins's site for The Gift of Failure here, on Twitter, on Instagramand on Facebook.

You can find her and KJ Dell'Antoniaat their podcast #AmWriting's on iTunesor on AudioBoom.

Episode 35: Caroline Donahue on planning, playing the (creative) field, and making room for unheard voices

This week, we are delighted to share our conversation with Caroline Donahue, a book coach and host of the wonderful Secret Library podcast and co-editor of the forthcoming anthology, I Wrote it Anyway. Caroline has so much great advice that we've decided she's our new spiritual adviser. In the episode, she talks about her planning process, giving creative projects time to root and grow (and not worrying about being too faithful to them), and her incredible publishing project, I Wrote it Anyway. Produced with Dal Kular, the short story anthology features writers who felt blocks to writing, either internal or due to the outside world, schedule, lack of support, etc, and will be out this fall.

Find out more at carolinedonahue.com, and follow Caroline on Twitter and Instagram @carodonahue.

Episode 34: April Critique and May Writing Prompt

In Episode 34, we share our responses to the April writing prompt. If you don't remember, for this one we used the Writer Igniter generator from DIYMFA. We gave you the option of picking/spinning for your own unique combination, or using the one we got when we used it:

Child prodigy + receives the wrong directions + handcuffs + beach

(Spoiler: We discussed the fact that this was not an easy one for us!)

We also go into our segment Everything is Terrible/What's Working Now, which could also be called writer therapy, with Olivia giving Meghan some good advice and then sharing a fun revision breakthrough.

Finally, we share the prompt for May. Send us your responses -- we'd love to read what you've come up with.
