This week I, (host Rebecca Galardo), discuss another much asked question with Author and Teacher Holly Lisle.  If you're looking for one of the most cited reasons that people use for not writing, it's time.

Time is a precious commodity, one of the few things in life that truly cannot be replaced.  There is no getting it back and so many people want to take it up.  Carving out space for our passions can be difficult when it comes to daily obligations.  Holly covers how to find the time in your life, but just as important, how to find the why in your life.

This week we head back into the vault of Writing Skill Questions.

I, (host Rebecca Galardo) and Author/Teacher Holly Lisle discuss the advice often heard - and not so often explained - "Show, Don't Tell."

Holly walks us through the topic with examples and points out the important things to keep in mind, including her most important tip of all.

A question Holly gets often is a variation of: "How did you go pro as a writer?"

I, (host Rebecca Galardo) and Author/Teacher Holly Lisle discuss her advice for other writers looking to earn a living as an author.  This plan lays out steps built from writing for over 35 years and being professionally published for almost 30 of those years.

Holly and Rebecca get personal and deep with examples of how Holly's life has effected her people, her career - and and how her career has had it's own effects.  An important listen for anyone wanting to make a living writing fiction.

The Writing Career - What if You had to do it ALL Over Again?

I, (host Rebecca Galardo) and Author/Teacher Holly Lisle went a different route this episode.  Holly was struck by a question in her personal Patreon.  "What if you had to do it all over again?" 

What would you do differently?

 

Holly takes this question on from two perspectives: starting over in her own already set life's timeline, or starting as a writer might be starting now, in the world of Indie and Trad pub options.

A complex question with a myriad of answers, there is something for any aspiring writer to learn in this episode, most of which is: all you have is right now.
