Who's the one to call when I'm frustrated
And I've got a problem with my plot?
Should my premise be so boldly stated?
Should I drop a clue, or should I not?
Sometimes I get caught up in my story
Where are these ideas coming from?
When it's one big exciting blur
That's when I should be writing her
At Mighty Mur @ Gmail dot com
—Fan-Created Theme Song
An award-winning Podcast
for wannabe fiction writers by wannabe fiction writer Mur Laffertynote
You can find the Podcast and the Blog here.
Tropes found in the podcast include:
- Blog - Besides the straight feed, Mur also posts the shows and the show notes on the ISBW Blog, along with a daily writing prompt from Jared Axelrod in News From Poughkeepsie.
- Gender-Blender Name - The host is named Mur. Be sure to not call her Sir if you're going to message her.
- Theme Tune - Specifically, a song created by a fan, which is now used to introduce the Listener Feedback segments "?Where are these ideas coming from? When its one big exciting blur, that's when I should be writing her, at Might Mur at gmail dot com!"
- She has two other theme songs as well — one for regular shows, and another one for the Good Cop Bad Cop segment.
- Viral Marketing - Mur has gained a lot of loyalty out of the podcast community from the show, which has helped her get her books moving on the release days - including a good Amazon Rush or two.
- Web Serial Novel - This is where that Viral Marketing comes in. Mur has a lot of Podcast Novels, including the Heaven series, The Takeover, and Playing for Keeps, which you can find on Podiobooks.
