Welcome to KPIP, the radio station where Paranormal is Powerful. For today’s episode of Words and Worlds, we have the ladies of Partners in ParanormYA. I’m your host, DJ Mister Ree.
Mister Ree: A Guilty Ghost Surprised, by Gwen Gardner, and They All Fall Down, by Angela Brown: two great paranormal stories available now. We’re glad to have both authors here on our show.
Gwen: Our pleasure.
*Angela nods in agreement*
Mister Ree: So, doing something different for today’s show. We got an e-mail from Wilmont in Las Vegas wondering if you have any advice for a newbie starting out in writing.
Angela: Oh wow, well, the truth is there’s tons of advice, but advice that really helped me was to read, read and read some more. It’s amazing how much you can learn from a great book. Also to write, write and write again. I don’t get to key out a specific number of words or pages a night. Life gets a little hectic sometimes. But I try to get in some writing time, even if it’s just a few minutes before I pass out for sleepy time. And by write, I mean write on a project, do a little plot brainstorming or working on blog posts so I’m progressing forward, baby steps and all.
Gwen: What Angela mentioned is very helpful. I’d like to add that getting in some research time is good. Begin the process of checking out the various paths to publication. Self-publishing is what I wanted. I’d done my research and it’s what I pursued. It isn’t a path for every writer. But don’t rush. Enjoy your newbie-ness, take your time and enjoy learning the craft of writing and indulging in your story ideas.
Mister Ree: Great words of wisdom to impart. And don’t you folks at home part without getting in on the giveaway and checking out more about A Guilty Ghost Surprised and They all Fall Down.a Rafflecopter giveaway
