First Cup of Coffee with Jeffe Kennedy
First Cup of Coffee with Jeffe Kennedy: October 15, 2021

Understanding how programmed misogyny works in employing story tropes, how to weed those things out of our work, and understanding why we view something like gossip as negative. Also: celebrating!

First Cup of Coffee – October 18, 2021: Author finances and why being transparent about money isn’t that easy. Also a bit more on Bard Art Friend, the ways in which we steal stories from each other, appropriation, intention, and owning our motivations.

First Cup of Coffee – October 19, 2021: I’m pulling together a lot of thoughts on plagiarism, influences, understanding our villains and the trouble with protagonists as avatars, taking ourselves out of the poem, and how there’s no magic formula.

First Cup of Coffee – October 21, 2021: I saw yet another class purporting to teach plotting for pantsers – this one to sell you software – and so I’m ranting about how ALL WRITERS PLOT, that your process is fine as is, and that you don’t need to outline!
