Episode 310: Book Things I Can Help You With

Show Notes

Join Vicky and Joe as they talk about the wonders of short stories, the importance of pronouns (because they ARE important—tune in if you’re in a frothing rage about how “woke” I am and find out why), and the fantastic hot seat book coaching event Vicky ran last week. They run through the 5 questions she chose, and show you how you can get past similar challenges. Happy listening!

 Key Points

  • [2:25] Elephants are Vicky’s favorite animals.
  • [7:00] Exploring a genderless species, and why language is important.
  • [11:50] Imagine not being able to recognize faces because of a brain injury.
  • [16:00] Vicky received some great questions lately!
  • [16:55] How do you know which non-fiction book to write?
  • [19:20] How do I get the right tone down for my readers?
  • [20:15] This is your first draft! Your tone of voice isn’t going to match 100% on its first go.
  • [22:00] How do you know when you’re finished?
  • [25:20] Why am I stuck?
  • [29:00] Currently stuck on a writing problem? Don’t worry, they’re common and Vicky is always here to help!
