Bleached hair, ukuleles, dwarvish fighting bread, a meltdown over yeast, friends on Zoom, and the realisation that Vicky has been Doing Too Much: tune in this week for the Quarantine Chronicles. And eventually some actual book-writing advice based loosely on the 7 Deadly Sins. This week, Joe and Vicky talk about greed: how it manifests in writing, the problems it causes, and what to focus on so you can win the long game. Stay kind out there.
- [1:00] Joe has weird hair.
- [3:15] Joe is STILL reading Robert Jordan.
- [4:05] Vicky believes the first 20 pages or so of a book need to not bore you!
- [8:45] Joe is trying to understand ukuleles.
- [10:00] Joe made bread. It was amazing!
- [12:50] During all of this, Vicky forgot to look after herself. So, she is taking some downtime by wearing cthulhu leggings!
- [17:25] How is ‘Greed’ defined?
- [21:50] You have to sell to people what they want, but also give people what they need.
- [26:45] Don’t chase quantity; go after quality.
- [27:10] Don’t be greedy for the shallow short-term gains. Think about the long-game.
- [29:00] Vicky’s course is coming out soon! Be sure to be signed up to her waiting list!
- [30:25] Vicky just wants to thank everyone right now who is working so hard and keeping the wheels turning!
