Here be Episode 10 of Writing In Suburbia. I talk a lot about how, as writers, we prepare for failure and rejection, but rarely do we prepare for success. You know, when things actually go right. That's a lot harder to deal with than you think.

I also enjoy a nice cup of warm coffee. Mmmmm, coffee...

Welcome back to more of Writing In Suburbia!

In this episode I talk about what bugs me about being a pro writer while totally owning up to how lucky I am to be doing what I do. It's pure privileged whining, that's for sure.

And I rant about how neglected our public education system is. RANT!

On this week's Writing In Suburbia, I go into the differences between writing on spec and writing on contract. I talk a little about the risks and rewards of each and why I have chosen one path over the other. Sort of.

And I sneeze.

That's right, folks! I delve into the exciting, and deadly, world of business taxes! Get thee to an accountant! Let their black magic be worked upon thee!

I also talk about laundering. Actual laundry, not money. I let my accountant do all my money laundering. Wait...is this thing on?

In the fifth episode of Writing In Suburbia, I discuss the juggling act of figuring out what to write next. I discuss the problem of committing to projects too soon which could lead to missing prime opportunities that haven't shown up yet. It's not a Catch-22, not a Sophie's Choice, it's a juggling act!

I also talk about cleaning the kitchen. Becuase that place gets gross.

In the fourth episode of Writing In Suburbia I chat about what social media means to me and what I see are the keys to being usccessful on it. Or not on it. Or who cares. I rant a bit about my love/hate/hate relationship with social media. It's cathartic for me, hopefully helpful for you.

In this week's episode I talk about why it's important to take care of yourself. Your mind and body are one, people! Feed you body, feed your mind, take care of both! I also go on a profanity-laden rant about bigots. Good stuff.

In this episode I talk a little about the importance of paying attention to taxes- what you owe, what you might owe, and why you can't always trust your accountant to be on top of things. I also decide not to send the HOA police after you. You are welcome. I'm a giver that way.
