I am honored to do this first (of many!) crossover event for THE WRITERS’ BLOCK PODCAST!
Follow The Writers’ Block Podcast and Written In Melanin Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Play and Spotify!
The incredible C.M. Lockhart is champion of Black writers, as well as her own spaces: Written In Melanin Podcast.
For this cause, what began as an hour-plus conversation on her platform, became a two-part event which we covered erasure, discouragement, publishing, and the need of people whom don’t read (at all) whom try to argue with you.
Hint: If you have only read White authors, you are not well-read.
I am excited about this event because it is rare where Black writers can be candid, vulnerable, and open in a space where they will be heard before they can be criticized.
Here is to more conversations and more crossovers!
When you have established a routine for your writing, sometimes you will become inundated with ideas, concepts and thoughts about the work you are doing and want to do!
Now, you have to remember you can only do so much in 24-hour day! However, it is possible to write more than one work at a time–but you must understand this can only be done through planning. Catch the ideas that come randomly, especially if they appear more than once.
When you catch these ideas, you are honoring your time, your talent and the potential to continue writing even after this project is complete. Honor your talent and time–make it a habit.
With Love & Ink,
Note: Watch for the podcast show “Two-In-One” on The Writers’ Block Podcast on December 17, 2020. Find us on Google Play, Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
There is a power in starting a work. But it is a greater thing to pick one back up! This is week I want you to examine what you may have left behind in the first part of the year (remember The Writers’ Block Podcast is always a resource!), and determine what you can do or what you need to finish. Do not determine your success by a calendar!
Last week, I found 3 drafts of books I wanted to start. Not one. Not two. But three of them. This is the concept of the Draft-Drawer that I talked about on the podcast, The Writers’ Block.
In this, the last month of the year, the last year of this decade, I invite you to look at your Draft-Drawer. Look at what you planned to do. What you wanted to do. It is sometimes when you are faced with what you planned for yourself, that you actually being to do it.
Get to work, dear ones. Don’t let the year end with your work not done.
One of my greatest joys is running this podcast! My fellow writers, I encourage you to subscribe and follow all happenings on Facebook! Below is the schedule until the end of Season 1. Season 2 will begin on 12/12/19.
I am happy now to present that I am in the final stages of launching a podcast on iTunes and Google Play with the help of Valor Music, Inc. The name of it is The Writers’ Block.
This podcast has been a year in the making.
The Writers’ Block is a weekly podcast that will be a space to talk about the business of writing, it’s challenges and even the need to write–as all writers are familiar with.
The Writers’ Block will feature local and indie authors, as well as their projects! I believe the podcast will serve as an anchor, encouragement and sounding board for writers current and future. We know that you only get better with writing, by writing. But sometimes you need to be reminded of the magic pen and paper still create.
