Episode 79: Candor and Communication in an Age of Denial
This is bound to be controversial only in the sense that too many folks are not used to talking straight or hearing things without code language, metaphors or euphemisms. Candor has been given a back seat in the age of understanding. But what is understood if decisions are made through fear and self-censorship defeats bold thinking and new ideas? As writers we should be cutting through this fog of frailty and speaking firmly to help make the world a better place.
Episode 78: Healthy Habits and Heavenly Writing
A fun episode reminding writers about eating and living more healthy. Health often plays a major role in writing from an energy standpoint. Hard to type up a novel or compose a poem when you are exhausted, in pain or breathing like a drunk dragon.
In the second installment of the Series, I delve into the bigger picture of where Publishing was, is and might be going forward.
Episode 76: Technology and the Arts
