Show Notes

With Carrie today is Dr. J.L Delozier who has the afternoon off and instead of resting, she was talking to us.

J.L. Delozier submitted her first story, handwritten in pencil on lined school paper, to Asimov's magazine while still in junior high school. Several years later, she took a creative writing elective at Penn State University and was hooked. Thriller writer, physician, and cookie addict, we were so glad that she didn't rest and spent some time with us.  

How cool is she?

Dr. Delozier’s first thriller, Type & Cross, debuted in April, 2016 and was nominated for a “Best First Novel” award by the International Thriller Writers

Type & Cross, is about a virus that starts in China and kills half the world's population.

If you listen to the podcast, you'll find out that Dr. Delozier has the writing chops and the medical knowledge to write that book. She worked for the federal government about disaster preparedness and now she's working at a Pennsylvania hospital dealing with Covid-19 and trying to lift the spirits of both her patients and the staff.

Listen, and you'll realize that you might want to move to Pennsylvania and have her be your doctor, too.

Here are some places to find out more about J.L.

Her website.

Her Twitter.

And here's a link to her newest book, CON ME ONCE. It's pretty amazing just like her.

Five Things To Make Your Life (and Writing) Happy

Things are a little hectic and crazy for us trying to create the podcast this week and we ended up – cough – recording it all while driving in the car, crossing international borders. Also, Shaun totally maybe breaks a law and you can hear it on the Random Thoughts part of the audio. But here goes:  For 80 years (or so) Harvard scientists studied people and their ability to be happy and healthy. What are the factors that seem to derail happiness and health? What puts us off track? Some were no brainers – Don’t Smoke. Don’t drink. Some were things we have no control over – Have a happy childhood. But there were some other interesting things like: Educate yourself – The more you learn? The actual act of getting educated? It makes you smarter and happier and healthier. That’s true for writers, too. The more we learn about writing and the process, the better we get at it, the happier we are with the end results. Be Smart in relationships – Emotional intelligence, having friends and a support network throughout your life, cultivating new friendships when old ones wane. That’s a key to happiness and healthy. Just like relationships are the key to a book. They are the key to survival. Generosity – The people who give back? Those people are happiest and healthiest. Be a mentor, a guide, a coach. And finally that leads us to…. WRITING TIP OF THE POD When Bad Stuff Happens, Don’t Have a Tantrum – When bad things happen to you, and problems arise, act like a grownup, not a passive-aggressive punk. Use altruism, suppression, humor and sublimation to ...

What The Heck Do Men Want?

So, over at the Good Men Project, they have a story called “Five Traits Men Want in a Partner That We Never Say Out Loud.” As a woman, I (Carrie) find this pretty frustrating. Why do men not say these things aloud?  Paul Marsh of the Good Men Project writes:  Most of us are just terrified of vocalizing what we want and 1) being laughed at or ridiculed in some capacity, 2) not having our desires taken seriously, or 3) not getting whatever it is we’re seeking.  Marsh’s article which is anecdotal and not data-sourced is saying similar things as an earlier article in 2015 by Anthony D’Ambrosio that was in Elite Daily. D’Ambrosio had seven traits/characteristics to Marsh’s five.   Marsh writes:  The world is realizing that, while we’re deeply flawed, men also have a sensitive side, one chock-full of rich emotions that extend beyond those usually associated with us — like anger. Even companies like Old Spice are rolling out scented bodywashes with lavender and other naturally-derived ingredients that have long been associated with femininity. Here is what Marsh says that men want:  TendernessGlobal listening skillsA kind talkerRespect which he defines as “being considerate about the desires, feelings, and traits of another personSomeone who ‘fights for you.’ D’Ambrosio’s article has reliability and being a best friend on the list as well as being self-aware and a communicator (kind talker and listener). He writes:  Remember: You don’t need a “life partner,” ...
