How to Be a Writer – Suzy Vadori’s Inspired Writing Episode 4

I meet people every day (mostly online this year!) who want to write a book. Some have an idea, some have started writing and maybe got stuck partway through the process, and some have completed works that have yet to be published.

But many are reluctant to call themselves “Writers”. Is there some secret rule or certification you need to use this title? How does one get from “Aspiring Writer” to “Writer”?

In this week’s Inspired Writing Episode, I talk about when you can call yourself a writer. Hint: you may be one already.

Behind the Scenes of Live Events as an Author – Suzy Vadori’s Inspired Writing Episode 3

There’s nothing I love more than meeting readers and talking books. And while there have been less opportunities to meet readers in person in 2020, I’m thrilled to be at Millarville Christmas Market this week.

Writers ask me a lot about the events I do, so this week my Inspired Writing Episode is dedicated to giving you a look behind the scenes of my planning for these events. In this episode I share

  • What I talk about with readers
  • When an author should consider doing events AND
  • My checklist of things I bring to events so I’M PREPARED FOR ANYTHING!

So far at the market I’ve met thousands of readers, braved a winter storm (my booth is outside!) and used up two pens signing books that will make their way into readers’ hands this Christmas. I can’t wait for what this next weekend will bring.

Is Social Media a Waste of Time? – Suzy Vadori’s Inspired Writing Episode 2

Now, more than ever our world is moving online.

I am so grateful for my online communities. I think of my network as my coworkers, and when I take the time to connect online I feel like I’ve been out in the world, even if I haven’t left my house or even my desk all day.

But I am all too aware that access to everything at my fingertips can be a HUGE distraction, which if left unchecked can hurt productivity.

So, how much is enough? Is there value online for writers, or is it just a distraction?

I made this week’s episode to share with you 3 destinations online I’ve found ways to

–          Learn more about writing and the publishing industry

–          Connect with other writers and share tips

–          Connect with readers

Check out this week’s episode above.

Happy Writing!
