Episode 48: Vampires, Power Dynamics, & NaNoWriMo 2020

On this episode of Dick of the Week, Liz has a very special guest Morgan Spatola. She is also a podcaster and writer. Together they discuss how National Novel Writing Month is going during the never ending year of 2020. They discuss how this experience is different than 2019, what they need to have a successful writing session, and the importance of a writing community for support.

Morgan isn’t writing a romance, per say, this year but did last year so it was interesting to discuss how she is approaching her writing this time around.

You can find Morgan Spatola on Twitter here and learn more about her podcasts, including one that is all about NaNoWriMo called Wet Hot American Moon Juice.

Dick of the Week Episode 35: Speaking of Cock

Y’ALL are you even READY for this!? This episode, Liz travels all the way up to Michigan to meet up with four (well, actually more than that but in this episode there are four) romance writers for a writers’ retreat in a cabin in the woods. Oh, and she had never met these people in real life ever before.

Sounds like the set up for a murder mystery instead of a weekend of romance writing, right?

Thankfully she survived with audio evidence of the shenanigans.
