Show Notes

# COLLABORATION Lea, Mary and Sue having a chat about all things books - this weeks theme is collaboration. As authors we usually work on our own in remote offices creating worlds and characters from a blank screen - but often it is worth raising our heads and working with others to push your creativity in new directions. We will be interviewing our very own Book Whisperer Andrew, urban bee keeper, and author of 'The Wee Book of Bees' due out later this year - published by The Wee Book Company)! We will answering your blind questions from our audience and also reading out some of our own work as well. Do keep providing us with those blind questions (either in comments or via our Facebook page) as it is a wonderful way of sparking our conversations and we want to discuss the subjects what you want to hear!

Writing Tips - Show don't Tell

*Showing and not Telling - a golden rule of writing. * This week the Whisperers are talking about writing tips using body language to show your reader how the characters are developing throughout the story. It allows the reader to judge for themselves what is going on and allows them to feel more part of the journey. It is therefore a style of writing that is more immersive for the reader allowing them to 'be in the room' with the characters. Chekhow said "Don't tell me the moon is shining. Show me the glint of light on broken glass." For example 'telling' might be: "Susan was frightened." Whereas 'showing' might be: "Susan tensed as she huddled under the covers. She gripped the sheets and held her breath as Lea read out the horror story she had just written." Thanks for listening to The Book Whisperers.

Writing for an Audience

This week's podcast is our first done remotely after hours (several) of set up with Hamish, our sound expert, who has the patience of a saint! Our topic today is writing for an audience - both what we see our existing audience as at the moment, and knowing who they are, to writing for different audiences and whether you should change your writing to be commercially successful. We have produced pieces of work for audiences that we don't usually write for (with hysterical consequences). We are also talking about doing our shopping as fairies! If you ever need help with your audio book, or recording sound for anything, Hamish Campbell from Sound Sound is thoroughly recommended by all three of us. www.https://www.soundsound.co.uk/ ...
