This week JJ and Kelly continue with their Publishing 101 REDUX series with Submissions. As per usual, JJ Keeps Things Probably a Little Too Real. Als: JJ finally gets Kelly to admit that puns are great, and they discuss their love of Lemony Snicket.
This week Kelly and JJ revisit an old topic: Querying & Representation! It’s been over a year since we last discussed this topic, so we decided to give it another go. Plus, Kelly has news that is highly relevant to this week’s episode. 😉
Happy new year! Going a bit off schedule by just playing catch-up from the holidays and looking back on 2016, as well as a look forward into 2017. SPOILER: It was a rough year for us, and we don’t think we were the only ones suffering from reading and writing slumps.
This week Kelly and JJ start a new series about TROPES IN FICTION. What makes a trope cliche? How do you subvert a trope? Also, HAMILTON MIXTAPE.
And we are back! After a bit of an unplanned hiatus, JJ and Kelly are back to regularly scheduled podcast episodes. Apologies for some of the audio quality—Kelly was apparently dying and we are out of practice with podcasting. But we wrap up our Writing Mechanics series this time around with SENTENCE CRAFT, or what makes good writing on a sentence level, not just macro level things like plot and pacing.
