Episode 67 – Fun with Homonyms!

Episode 67 – Fun with Homonyms!

Writing PromptcastHi everyone!  Sorry for my absence last week, it was a crazy time.  I’m thinking about making this a biweekly podcast instead of weekly…TBD.

This week I’m talking about homonyms, and how much fun they are in this writing practice – did I say FLOUR or FLOWER?  In addition to the reasons I mention in the podcast, they also allow for all kinds of splits in your story.  I’d really love to see what you come up with!  Email me, or post online!

The Writing Promptcast is a timed writing practice podcast designed to be listened to while you write.  It’s filled with random word prompts, with plenty of room in between to write.  See how it works here.

NaNoWriMo 2016 Day 1 (Episode 33)

Woooooo!  Here we go!  It’s November, time for the crazy insane thing that is National Novel Writing Month.  This month, I’ll be doing daily 30 minute podcasts to help you reach your goal, whether it’s 5000 words, 50,000 words, or (gulp) 500,000 words.

The Writing Promptcast is the podcast you listen to while you write.  It’s filled with random word prompts, with plenty of room in between to write.  See how it works here.

Remember, the goal of National Novel Writing Month isn’t to write something great, it’s to write.  So let’s get started!

The Writing Promptcast is the podcast you listen to while you write.  It’s filled with random word prompts, with plenty of room in between to write.  See how it works here.

November is coming fast, and I am super excited to be doing 30 minute daily podcasts for the month.  I’m also terrified I’ve set myself up for failure, but I’m going to do my best!  Because in addition to doing a podcast every day, I’ll be writing, on average, 1700 words a day.

Sleep?  Who needs sleep?!

Mentioned in today’s podcast:

Also, here are a few online word generators:

  • Text Fixer gives you the option to generate 6-10 words
  • Creativity Games.net has a word generator, but also some other fun exercises – check out the drop down menu for tweening!
  • Random Word Generator gives you more options for word generation, including word size
  • There’s also an app (available on android, and I’m sure it’s on ios as well) called Random Word Dictionary

Episode 31 – 20 minute writing practice

Episode 31 – 20 minute writing practice

The Writing Promptcast is a timed writing practice filled with single word prompts, each separated by several minutes of silence.  The idea is to simply write with a single word prompt, and then continue writing with the next.

During the month of November, I’ll be doing daily 30 minute Promptcast episodes, to help out those of you doing National Novel Writing Month.  If 50,000 words seems like too much for you, check out The Notebook Project.  Spend November filling a notebook cover to cover – it can be as small or large of a notebook as you want.

Repost – Episode 14

Procrastination and construction work combined this week led to me not being able to record a new podcast this week.  My apologies.  I’m reposting Episode 14 today, which, if you’re new to the podcast, will give you a rundown of what it’s all about.

I’ll be back next week with a new podcast, promise!
