Necessary Pep Talk–By Writers, For Writers


This Pep Talk In Your Pocket was made with the generous contributions of writers just like you. We hope this will give you some cheer when your family asks, “So–are you still writing?”

Explaining the writing life to your family can be hard, especially during the holidays. So when they start asking you why you don’t have a movie deal yet/how many copies your book has sold/why you don’t just hit Upload and become a bestseller, pop in your earbuds, crank up this podcast, and remind yourself you’re not alone.

Please note: there is some (very justified, we think) swearing in this podcast.

If, like many writers, you’re often on the go, we have a podcast so you can learn about publishing while also driving, cooking, cleaning, and going about your day.

The podcast is FREE, and brought to you by #MSWL’s educational sister company, The Manuscript Academy. You can either download (with iTunes) or stream (with Soundcloud).

Most episodes are agent and interviews, #TenQueries episodes, and/or first pages analysis–with lessons for everyone. If you’d like to submit your first page for consideration, send it (as a Word doc, please) to Academy at ManuscriptWishList dot com.
