Helpful, Inspirational & Fun!

KM has an enjoyable and entertaining twist on the standard “learn writing” podcast in that she often makes comparisons to popular movies. Doing so allows the listener to understand her lessons and opens the door to understanding. I learn something every episode!

I want to love this.

I want to love this podcast. I really do. The information is invaluable, and it’s really helped me improve my writing. So why can’t I love it? I just cannot stand the way she talks. Half the time she slurs her words like she popped a Valium or did a couple shots before recording. The other half she’s pronouncing words in a way I’ve never heard from a born-and-bred American. It’s so distracting that I simply can’t absorb the information. This might sound petty or mean, which is why I gave it 3 stars (I know a person can’t help their voice; I’m from Philadelphia and I know how grating I must sound to others) but if you’re trying to make yourself known through a voice broadcast, it might be worth it to learn to speak in a way that allows us to focus on what you’re saying rather than the way in which you’re saying it. Newscasters do it all the time. Until then, I’ll stick to the blog.

Can be Lost on a Beginner

I have a lot of high hopes for this podcast. There is a lot of information to take in and it sounds like it could be very useful. However, with all the terms and lingo it is hard for someone who’s a beginning writer to follow. I would most like to see more references and examples for all of these tips and steps she recommends. At times, it all just becomes a blur in my brain and I have a hard time understanding what she’s actually trying to convey without it being tied back to concrete examples.
