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 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!
