Many writers dream of publication, but you can't fine tune your piece of writing, let alone pitch it to the right publisher, until you have a finished writing that draft. If only 5% of writers finish their first draft, how can you set yourself up for success to ensure you're part of that group?In today's episode, Erin is sharing how she finished her first draft in 2022! Her biggest piece of advice is to understand how you personally can motivate yourself, because we all have those moments when we lose steam, even when writing a story we're excited about.Erin also covers the topics of positive reinforcement and creating a rewards system, tracking progress, and sharing your wins. Tune in for all this and more to finish that first draft! About Erin: For 15 years, Erin has worked as a magazine and book editor, encouraging each writer's individual voice and strengthening their writing goals. When she became a parent, she set aside her own writing aspirations to focus on her family. As the years passed, she grew increasingly anxious, depressed, and angry until she realized that she had forgotten who she was beyond being a parent. Despite fearing her skills had atrophied, Erin started writing again. She first created her blog, Life Beyond Parenting, and then created the Parents Who Write podcast. Erin's current role as a podcaster and writing coach enables her to help parents pursue their writing dreams.She earned her MA in Writing from Johns Hopkins University, and she has finished the first draft of a fantasy-romance novel.

Allison loved the entire story, because she pretty much loves everything Corey writes. She made a few edits, asked Corey a bunch of questions, and the story got longer.

Have you ever written something you love, that you're feeling so excited about, but you find yourself unable to get past a certain scene or finish a full draft?Spending the time to really carve out your character's personality and identity will give you great insight into their motivations and desires, making it easier to craft a story around them. This knowledge develops a deeper understanding of any hero, villain, or supporting character. Instead of wondering where the story is going next, you'll have a clearer direction to work with.Three-dimensional characters that ring authentic to readers usually have a depth that readers connect to, resulting in them becoming more invested in the characters' fates. In short, readers will care more, and writers will be more motivated to tell their characters' story.To learn how character development can help you get past doubt and feeling stuck to finally finish the first draft, tune in to this episode!Topics discussed in this episode: Surface-level character development3 things to help you dive deeper into your charactersBenefits of knowing your characters through and throughReverse engineering your plotWhy it helps to know your character for marketing purposesDon't forget about the villains!About Erin: For 15 years, Erin P.T.

This week we examine the sometimes painful process of drafting and redrafting. We're joined by Denise Mina, who appeared on the Verb in 2019 to share her feelings towards a book she had only just started. What became of it? Listen to find out. Toby Litt's current novel is 'A Writer's Diary'. Initially published in the form of daily emails to subscribers, the lines between fact and fiction appear to blur with every email. How is a work like this drafted? Paul Tran says redrafting of his poems is also a redrafting and a rebuilding of the self in the wake of trauma or extremity. For Singer-songwriter and folk historian Polly Paulusma it is through the process of drafting that ideas and images that first appear buried bubble up to the surface, And our 'Something New' poem this week comes from Costa Award-winning poet Hannah Lowe Presenter: Ian McMillan Producer: Cecile Wright

Today's guest is one of my favourites Emma Forrest – it is a replay episode that we recorded back in December 2019. She is the author of three novels, an essay collection and the memoir Your Voice In My Head, one of my favourite memoirs on mental health. In this episode we discuss her new novel ROYALS and we chat about her career, creativity, meditation, her writing process and even a little story about Adam Driver. Emma has a brand new brilliant memoir out called Busy Being Free “A Lifelong Romantic Is Seduced by Solitude" and will leave a link to it in the shownotes. It is a stunning memoir about divorce, but really; self-love, self-acceptance and romancing yourself. It's beautiful, bold, generous, fragile, strong, sexy, open-hearted with every sentence packing a punch.

Today on our show, we're talking about beginnings and endings. What is an effective way to begin a story and a satisfying way to end? The story we bring you on this episode is an amazing example of how to start with appropriate grounding and how to land/end the essay like a gymnast. The narrator isn't just a beginning and ending genius, she also uses lingo associated with her theme. This style is effective, because the reader feels more drawn in. Another example of that same type of inclusive linguistic style was discussed on Episode 110: How to Write About Death: Use an Obsession. Jackie Ashton told the story of her best friend's cancer by using the situation of a Golden State Warriors obsession and basketball lingo throughout. Shawna Kenney submitted the essay you will hear today and we were blown away. Her story is called Words with Mom.Shawna Kenney is the author of four books, the latest being Live at the Safari Club: A History of HarDCore Punk in the Nation's Capital 1988-1998.

Today on our show, we bring you a story by one of Allison's 7th grade students. She spent two months teaching English to 7th and 8th graders at a private school in Miami, and because she's her, she assigned personal essay after personal essay. She learned about their parents, what they eat for dinner, their nannies, grandparents, and favorite sport. They resisted getting personal, the same way Allison did when she started writing.Most people seem to struggle with writing about themselves, getting vulnerable, telling a story that might get them made fun of. But, not Webber. Webber is a kid who draws in class to stay focused. He pays attention and asks questions. When he speaks, his words matter. By the end of the first week of school, Allison had an inkling Webber was brilliant and unique. The Hispanic Heritage Month's Essay Contest was optional for the school but a graded class assignment for Allison's class. The students worked on the 500-word essay in class and those who weren't Hispanic were stumped. Allison told them to write about being stumped. On the day the essay was due, Webber handed in an incredibly mature and well-written essay. A week later, at the culmination of the week's Hispanic heritage celebration, Webber won the competition. Today, we bring you Webber's essay, completely written on his own. Allison did no editing. What's cool about this essay and many essays that are created from a writing prompt, is that Webber played the piano and let his mind wander. On this episode we talk about ways to relax our minds so we can write--either through being quiet, playing a sport, or using another art form. Webber is a 12-year-old student at Ransom Everglades Middle School in Coconut Grove, Florida. His story is called The Bossa Nova.Writing Class Radio is hosted and produced by Allison Langer, Andrea Askowitz, and Zorina Frey.

In Episode 138: There's Always More to the Story, we talked about why only three men submitted stories, none of which fit our guidelines. We called men cowards. Matt Cundill, our audio producer, was in the greenroom listening. If you missed Episode 138, check it out. You can hear the lashing we gave all the men out there who have a story they refuse to share. After the recording, Matt expressed his anger. Andrea said, “Let's hear your story.” Today, he is sharing his story One Man's Abortion Story with you. Sharing his story brought up some issues for the narrator and for many writers of memoir. How do you tell your story when the story involves others who may not want their story shared?

Today's episode revisits the subject of abortion but is about much more. We put a call-out for men's abortion stories and received several abortion stories by women and very few (only three) by men. We are grateful to the men who submitted, but none was quite right for Writing Class Radio. We will continue to bring you abortion stories as they come in. So men, please weigh in. We want to hear from you. Submission guidelines are on our website.We selected this essay by past student Melanie Merriman because it is brilliantly written and deeply vulnerable. Melanie's story shows how even someone who is a badass scientist can be manipulated and emotionally coerced into having sex when she doesn't want to. Melanie's story also shows how there is so much more to every abortion story--every story.Dr. Melanie P. Merriman, PhD was a research scientist. Now she's a non-profit grant evaluator.
