Welcome back!

In this episode I talk about how there is no one way to be a writer. How we all have our own process. I also talk about pot pie because pot pie is yum.

That's right, folks, in this week's episode I talk about the need for influences. I chat a little about the works (good and bad) that have influenced my writing and my career. We all have influences, it's time to embrace them!

And my barking dog does some barking because he barks.

On the latest episode of Writing In Suburbia I talk a little about why perfect continuity may not be the best thing when dealing with a long timeline. I also rage against humanity, as I am known to do.

Bonus: cold coffee!

This week on Writing In Suburbia I fight Mexican drug cartels while my sidekick, Johnny Guns, woos the local madame to get information on the deadly Russian plot to take over Murica!

Or I talk about networking and the importance of friendships and professional connections in the industry. In essence: why writers drink so much.

It all happens at the bar!

Plus I decide it's a good day to wash sheets.

Welcome to another episode of Writing In Suburbia!

This week I get real about how income can flip on a dime (no pun intended). I also talk a little about getting back to my roots of being a pulp fiction writer. Okay, I talk a lot about getting back to my roots of being a pulp fiction writer.

And there might be some thoughts on soup and working food service.

That's right, Alex, I'll take potpourri for $100!

Yep, this week's episode is a hodgepodge (which I just found out is one word. Who knew?) of topics from music while writing to quantity v. quality to whatever. I'm all over the place in this one! ALL OVER THE PLACE!

And I play some blues harp, because blues harp.

Welcome to the latest episode of Writing In Suburbia!

I have survived Dragon Con! I talk about that, but mainly I talk about the importance of prioritizing your life and knowing what you are willing to sacrifice and what you are not willing to sacrifice. I get slightly choked up. Slightly.

Writing In Suburbia #11 is brought to you by toast. Yummy, delicious, nutritious toast. Find your toast, people. Find your toast.

Also, I talk about cons (conventions) and the practical and personal benefits of attending. I also talk about making sure you take care of yourself. FIND YOUR TOAST!

Oh, and the last thing- find your toast.

It all makes sense in the podcast. Trust me.

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!
