Anthology No. 1 📕
The best writing & publishing advice from this summer
Okay, wow, this Little Podcast That Could has now had 13 enlightening guests — a baker’s dozen of different perspectives on writing and publishing. I’ve learned so much already. To reinforce these valuable takeaways, I assembled the Cliff’s Notes so we can all steal like artists and drill the lessons we’ve learned deeper into our minds.
If you love writing and publishing advice as much as I do, this episode is going to hit the spot. It’s chock-full of wisdom on building community, establishing a daily practice, editing yourself, and all kinds of helpful writing and publishing mindset tips.
Big thanks to the following authors for contributing their knowledge and experience:

Where I write:
I usually ask each guest to give us a peek behind the scenes. This week, I’m offering my own BTS.

Online reading about writing:
How Does a Married Couple Write Books Together? - Can you imagine writing a book with your partner?! “Two chairs, one computer.” I could never.

If you can believe it, Ilona Andrews and her husband Gordon seem to genuinely enjoy the arrangement, according to the NYT.
How to Write a Novel in a Month - I love this practical, numbers-based approach to cranking out a draft from Fawn Parker via Catapult. I’m toying with the idea of doing NaNoWriMo this year and found her advice helpful for wrapping my head around that.
I honestly might steal this wedding reception idea:
I profiled the “dick artist” behind Doc Johnson’s sex toys for InsideHook if you’re into that kind of thing. 😏
Until next time, HAPPY BLEEDING!
So… ROLL CALL! 🗣️
