Writing From the Dark Side

This week on Hide and Create, Diana Rowland, Joshua Essoe, Moses Siregar, and Jordan Ellinger talk about writing from the dark side.

Writing is therapy. And sometimes it’s alien abduction. You never know. Just as your writing can benefit from your life experience, your life experience can benefit from your writing.

Next time you’re stuck in line, waiting for groceries, waiting at the DMV, riding an elevator, let your mind wander. What would be the worst possible thing that could happen in that situation? What would be the most amazing thing? Or the most romantic? Everyday life is rife with writing prompts and stories, all you have to do is let your mind do the walking.

Writing Methods, Environments, and Promotion! Oh My!

This week on Hide and Create, Moses Siregar, Jordan Ellinger, Diana Rowland and Joshua Essoe continue the discussion with Moses on previous subjects: writing methods, writing environments, and self-promotion.

Moses shares some valuable insights on his experience with indie publishing his novel The Black God’s War, and talks about developing the setting for his latest novella “The Children of Wood and Wind”. Diana and Jordan debate how detailed you should make your settings, while Joshua expands on creating the perfect writing environment.

Settings and More Dirty Little Secrets! Oh My!

This week on Hide and Create, Moses Siregar, Jordan Ellinger, Diana Rowland and Joshua Essoe discuss a new take and offer more insight on our previous subjects: writing methods, dirty little writing secrets, writing environments, self-promotion, and settings.

If you loved our previous shows, you’ll love this one even more because in part one we talk about a couple previous episode topics, allowing Moses to get his two-cents in. Or three or four cents in.


Writing Environments

This week on Hide and Create, Joshua Essoe, Diana Rowland, Jordan Ellinger, and David Dalglish discuss writing environments and tools.

Lives outside of writing — we’ve all got them. Well most of us.  How do you combat the evil and powerful monster of laziness? And when you are writing, what are the best tools to have on hand? Are you on team Scriviner or team Word? How in the world do you schedule writing time around family obligations, especially during the holidays?

It’s not all cuddle breaks, date nights, and Mine Craft addictions.
