00:01:10 — What’s going on with Twitter and what it teaches us about owning our online (author) presence
00:08:10 — This is a weekly podcast now.
Hello, friends, it’s November 2022. Happy National Novel Writing Month. Some of you may be doing NaNoWriMo this year. I won’t be. Probably not. For various reasons. But I feel that even if you don’t plan on doing the NaNoWriMo challenge, it doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate National Novel Writing Month. How I’m going to do that, I have no idea.

Can you get tired of writing? Plus: the Radish Fiction app’s Wait-to-Unlock pricing model, retail hijinks, Patreon struggles
Hello, this is Ansela, and you are listening to Adulting for Authors. Yeah, that's right— I'm back.
So yesterday, I decided to post a little message, a little note on Patreon for my patrons. And it was mostly to tell them that this week's chapter for Fake-Married to my Billionaire Boss is late, which, of course they already knew. Because yesterday was Thursday, and I was supposed to post it on Monday. That's what I promised right? At the beginning of the month of October, I posted a thing and said, Okay, so we're going to do this more regular. I decided I should be more regular with my rewards. So once a week, at least for my $1 and $3 patrons. So I said every Monday — new chapter. At least, that's to begin with. I might add some more stuff next month, but I didn't want to overwhelm myself.

Words and Lyrics with Jay E. Tria
Romance author Jay E. Tria and I chat about productivity, writing fictional bands and ... eggs. Among other things! I also ramble on about fountain pens. Enjoy!

Story Design with Brigitte Bautista
Over a lovely breakfast at La Mere Poulard, I had a chat with F/F romance author Brigitte Bautista. We talked about how outlining made her a better, more productive writer and how writing fiction is kind of like programming, which is her day job.

Plot Challenges with Mina V. Esguerra
I interview romance author Mina V. Esguerra about her writing process and how she manages to hit her word count goals. We also go in-depth about her difficulties with her latest book Kiss and Cry (which is available now so go get it). While we chatted, we had a yummy lunch at Mom and Tina's in Greenhills on the Lunar New Year (yes this episode is super late sorry).
