The Newbie Writers’ Podcast

Special Guest: Beth Barany

Beth and Catharine are actually on a blog tour today – Meet My Characters blog tour.

This week we get all rock n roll as we will discuss how to set up a blog tour, how to manage a blog tour and why do it at all. We also get side tracked and talk about beta readers and where to find them.

Word of the week

A.Word.A.Day

with Anu Garg

The human body has been described as the most complex machine around. No wonder Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, said, “The life so short, the craft so long to learn.” The parts of this machine have become such a part of the language that we use them without even realizing it. This week we’ll review five body parts (eye, hand, head, heel, and throat) that are embedded in our language in the form of verbs.

inveigle

PRONUNCIATION:

(in-VAY-guhl, -VEE-) 

MEANING:

verb tr.: To get something or to persuade someone to do something by deception or flattery.

ETYMOLOGY:

From Old French aveugle (blind), from Latin ab- (away from) + oculus (eye). Earliest documented use: 1513.

USAGE:

“The Internet has changed the way new late-night hosts inveigle their ways into the hearts of fans.”
Bill Carter; Familiar Night Bird Reclaims a Perch; The New York Times; Sep 9, 2013. 

Tortured Sentences:

So women have decided to fight mens battles, since they are not doing it for us wife. I think its sad that many educated women become materialistic to an extent that its stomping on all the people surrounding us that we love.

Prompt:

Close up. Our guest last week, CS Lakin, talked about creating movie scenes for each moment of your work. Describe a scene from high up a camera crane. Now describe the same thing in close up. What falls away? What was actually pretty important?
