Episode 330: MicroBook Magic Showcase Special

Show Notes

This week you’re in for a treat — I invited my MicroBook Magic authors to come and join me live and read from the MicroBooks they’ve been writing during November. And now you can hear their creations on today’s podcast! So grab a cuppa, settle in, and listen — and perhaps you’ll be inspired to write your own MicroBook. Starting January 10, maybe? Maybe? Gwan!

 Key Points

  • [1:00] Joe is calling in from an undisclosed underpass!
  • [7:50] What advice has Joe received that he’s absolutely hated?
  • [9:50] Should you write like you speak?
  • [13:00] It takes a lot of practice to ‘write like you speak’.
  • [15:00] Would you like to read a 900 page technical manual?
  • [15:40] It’s not a sin to use filler words! Just place them strategically.

  • [20:10] Do a fun thing first before you the hard thing.
  • [23:00] What’s some common writing advice that you hate?
