This episode is hosted, moderated and refereed by myself. I discuss a bit of organizational philosophy (containers and tags, nothing too heady) then I suggest some tips, tools and techniques that authors can use to get their writing lives organized. Manuscripts, plots, submissions, research, rejection letters, and more.
And the handout stuffed full of useful links for getting your writing organized is here.
How can science fiction writers get the future wrong? How can you avoid doing so? What can make writing seem dated before it even comes out?
Here is the first MNSpec writer’s group podcast.
We discuss regional Minnesota conventions, what we’d like to see at conventions, how to choose what conventions to go to, how to get on panels, how introverts can integrate at conventions, and survival tips for everyone!
