No we're doing bottom up top down bottom up and as we've said a few times in the past month or so rita's back to normal. You know the world isn't back to normal but reed is back to normal. Were sitting about it and yet now i'm like regret now like we jumped the thrill she was getting. We were thrilled. That she was getting The same number of headlines that she used to get however we didn't want her to get these types of headlines. Oh no this is very bad. So celebrated bad parts. Don't throw your own bad party. It's funny because when. When i saw that she was turning thirty i felt a little pang of leg odds tube-like turning thirty like this time like that's that's more rain could feel bad. Yeah for somebody who loves to party. She loves to party but she something happened here. And she's now in a lotta deep water. She's on the cover of the sun so when she turned thirty. This is what we thought on. Saturday night was at saturday night. That her she posted at thirtieth birthday video that her team made her. Were all these important people in her. Life mcwhirter happy birthday. Big jazz. host of it was just so many people i mean. It's dozens of pete. That's what we thought we were going to be talking about today. That's exactly what o our michael caine star studded video incredible. Here's who's in it. We identified a lot of these people even though it was very difficult and then and then this happened sunday night. We'll saturday night. saturday night. Rada had a birthday party that was like a fake up or they. So i think that a lot of people are doing this and this is not just celebrities. This is normal people. They're showing the world one thing on instagram than they're doing something entirely different offense to graham serena showed me beth so rita showed a thirtieth birthday party that was very small and cute in her apartment in her flat. There were balloons on the ceiling. She watched the video. You could tell there. Were a couple other voices in there. She showed this big spread of desserts and it was like look at this cake. I'm gonna eat it all by myself. Ha ha ha. So it's very like this is how i'm celebrating in these times. But she also had a thirtieth birthday party at a fancy restaurant in notting hill. Yeah and it looks like she just hossack rented the space definitely because there were people bringing in liquor and ice and so it looks like she just rented the space and had over thirty people. And it's apparently against the law to even have like more than one person outside of your household and there are more. Their lockdown laws are more We have some to here. But there's more and they're more will get you your name. They're more like actually taking this seriously but also like they should take rita ora doing this more seriously than anyone because again. She's a public figure. And this shit's going to get photographed. What i'm confused about. And i wonder what you think is like. Did somebody call the paparazzi. Like who how. What's the deal with that like. There were lots of photos or photos of the cops getting there and being like What's going on in here. You know like literally. They had photos of the whole shebang. People going in people going out. Rita going in rena going out and i just wonder like for rita we've already said like. Oh you know. She calls the paparazzi. But like you wouldn't call the paparazzi on your own like a legal birthday when you're doing something like flagrantly illegal but this dead. Maybe not someone whether it was someone at the restaurant a neighbor because it doesn't look like these people they're like they're actually sneaking and they're going back doors like it doesn't look like they wanted anywhere right there and also looks it also looks late as hell like it doesn't look. It doesn't look just like nighttime. It looks like it's late really fucking stupid like i. Not that. I want people to like you know flout these rules or whatever but it just looks. They did it. The stupidest way that i could imagine doing this type of kind of activity Are photos all over the son of like police officer showing up in peering into windows. They're blurry paparazzi time photos of her sister and that guy vast morgan showing up with arm. Loads of prospero tequila articulate brand. Poppy delevingne kara levin. A lot of people. I can't recognize among the thirty so if we have photos of those we have photos of the people people knew you know but there are twenty eight other people who weren't photograph because i guess they weren't important enough to be photographed. Her hat to have photographs. Patty love to identify those people. So according to the loss this is what it says in the guardian england's national lockdown which ends on tuesday which is like ria you could of waited it's against the law to meet more than person you do not live with acceptance specific circumstances.

She just voluntarily paid ten thousand pounds. She was like you know what. Here's the money police. Stay away from me. I'm so sorry alone. She's on the cover of the sun with a mask on in a big firm furnish coat that says read a party. Cheater was a really good. That was a really good line in the sun that said bang out of ora. Rita ora slammed she flouts lockdown laws. With thirty thousand. I was like bang out of something. Must be a british slang and it is. It's bang out of order which means someone is like acting a mess acting fool. You're being unreasonable. Your bang out of order posted a apology already on instagram winch. Is you know she said hello. I attended a small gathering with you through the gathering rita. You through the party. It was it was a spur of the moment decision. No it wasn't. It was a party that you through a birthday party made with the misguided view that we were coming out of lockdown. This would be okay. You were but few days later. Sorry i've commentary for all this. I'm deeply sorry raking the rules and intern understand that. This put people at risk. This was a serious inexcusable. Error of judgement given the restrictions. I realize how responsibilities actions and i take full responsibility. I feel particularly embarrassed knowing firsthand. How hard people have worked to combat this terrible illness and being fully aware of the sacrifices that people and businesses have made to help. Keep us all safe. Even though. this won't make it right. I want to sincerely apologize.

So He's also the writer and director of the Komi ruled based on. James Comey's book a higher loyalty it'll be on showtime in September. We also like him because he's a dodger fan. Gregg Hurwitz is the New York. Times internationally.

He publishes academic articles on Shakespeare and he's taught or lectured at USC UCLA and Harvard. In the course of researching his thrillers, he swims with sharks, sneaks onto demolition ranges with navy seals and he's even gone undercover into mind control cults. Greg's editorial pieces have appeared in the Wall Street Journal. The Guardian, the Huffington Post and finally he's made it he's on politics meet me in the middle. Greg Billy have worked together pro Bono on political races since two thousand sixteen. They've helped candidates with messaging speeches, debate prep focusing on Democrats. Yes. But it's about how to make arguments that our Republican friends may actually respect. They've also written and produced many political ads but as a matter of fact, there's one I really want you to see. So we're GONNA place it on our website that features the shining city on a hill speech by Ronald Reagan. You simply must be it and you'll understand would really moves us. Today you'll see that these guys are truly impassioned. So. Billy Ray and Greg Hurwitz. Welcome to both of you and thanks for joining. US thank you. Thank you. You guys have also talked about how we're not so good at listening anymore and for your political messaging Youtube have made communicating an art. Can you tell us about that? Well one of the things that I think is really important that we've boiled a lot of this down to is understanding the different value structures and ways that conservatives versus liberals. Information. In terms of big five personality theory, which is a lot of people are more familiar with Myers Briggs which is sort of the cliff notes too big five personality theory. There's different traits structures. So liberals tend to hire certain traits like openness and empathy, and we tend to communicate through those whereas conservatives tend to communicate or tend to have a value structure that prefers high conscientiousness value SAS and both. These are absolutely essential value sets one of the things in where we find polarization when only communicate in the language and through the value sat of their own listeners or people who are like minded, and when we have a breakdown of discourse that happens in the middle of good faith, enlightenment discourse people only communicate among themselves in their. Own Language in their values which drives the left further laughed in the right further right. Until what we have is is black and white thinking and the denigration of anyone who doesn't think like us to what should they do? Instead, I'll give you an example I. think of high empathy high openness arguments because Democrats tend to be higher in those things they communicate in that language as Greg said. So a classic Democrat is don't you care about Jimmy Kimmel's kit to which Republicans. Say will yeah I care about Jimmy Kimmel I can't take care of everybody's kid. It's not that they lack empathy is that in a hierarchy of values, it falls below conscientiousness. So, would you have to do as a Democrat we believe is make arguments that are not high empathy arguments, but our arguments that are actually designed to to reach someone who cares about robustness of the community as a whole you know these these percentage fixed again up to an introvert, turn it into an extrovert. Token it doesn't help a Democrat to Republican why can't you be more empathetic like me? I'm better person than you are because I have higher empathy it's important to note that high conscientiousness which conservatives score so well in codes for better health. Longer life span, more stable marriages and better careers. So while Democrats are condescending to Republicans saying why cage would be more like US bubbles you're saying we're fine over here with our longer life span and are better careers or marriages. You've done an analysis to understand the driving psychology behind Conservatives and Democrats right. Under everything in a conservative voter, the thing that unites politically is a fear of chaos. If you go back and look at every argument that Republican candidates make classically the subjects of it is always Democrats will bring chaos. It's why Ted Cruz is out there right now tweeting that all Democrats are anarchist riders as why Mike, Pence is out there saying Joe Biden wants defendant lease when he knows that not to be true because he's trying to paint a picture the. Democrats will create less safety. It's why the Willie Horton ad worked. It's it's always the attack that Republicans mic until what we try to talk Democratic candidates about they have to attack the fear of chaos that makes a Republican, a Republican, and they have to pay themselves accurately I believe as the.

Right now is like instead of trying to find the perfect words wedding to see is the problem in how how so that's all. Denver did Like people to take back their set in Tandy's she was truthful and bold what she shifted that and not wait focused so then I went everyday live on facebook that week mostly for crickets. 'cause I don't do. I do nothing with my facebook Anaheim profanity you are like. I do shit with my facebook page but I was like. Let me go out there. Let me be in leadership and let me also demonstrate like it does not have to be perfect right. Because I'm working with perfectionists or like I haven't have have only ducks in a row yet. Big everything out some like I got nothing going on on my facebook page. I ignore routinely do almost nothing with social media because I learned email marketing from Santa. And I don't need to do any of those media so but I was like screw it. Let me get to as many people as I can and I went live on facebook every day just to bring people to livestream and to have different components of how you can take back your sanity today. An everyday things were changing in every day there was another opportunity to freak out or be sad or feel bewildered understandably so and so. I wanted to have a safe space for people to come and be like. Do you feel like crazy right now. Let's take back your sanity and so that was beautiful. Thing in the livestream was so well attended. I just was like Firoz on for three hours than emails to your list to like. Join me on this stuff. Lives joint livestream. Yep exactly and I don't normally send out a TON OF COACHING I. I know I never email. I just daily or anything like that but But this was about every other day I was sending out an email which is a lot for me now but I was just every time I had an email every time. I had something to invite them to. I was inviting them so so it was like facebook tomorrow. And you know this thing over here and so then. The livestream was like a party. It was just amazing like people were going out of the woodwork. Was Crazy and a lot of fun. It really was a lot of fun. A lot of information. There is a lot of deep work. Did A lot of coaching Acuna into deep work but the overall feel was like relief. And thank you and yes you know. And that was that salt powerful all over the place might team said the tribes said and then all offered a ton of free strategy calls right. I've just been packing the calendar and I have new coaches on the team who are taking those halls and I really am staying as keenly focused as I possibly can on making sure that no matter what happens on that call. They're getting value. And yes if it's a fit for my program we're making an offer and I'm letting them know that before they get on the call and not everybody's getting an offer and not everybody's coming in but everybody is like thank you. This is helpful and all that kind of stuff and that still and deborah like show for someone for people who have so you I will you. I mean a six figure week right yes contract income so own up stepping into your long program. I now have on the books to come in in the next year. About one hundred thirty five thousand in that week yet lasting. Just stop there for say a hundred thirty five thousand. I mean like when you when I remember when I works for someone and when I made a hundred thousand dollars a year. That's eight thousand dollars a month right and so you stop when you stop and look at that. You did that one week and what's happening right now. People are home there. There are paying attention like the first time in a long time. They're paying attention. And what's a really wonderful time to get alignment? I WANNA I WANNA break up. Some of the things you've done. You paid attention to what people need it right and and not the product but the emotion and you went in and served the emotion. You built an email list. Which by the way you guys you could do literally I mean we just did it in. You can do it in sixty days you can do it three months and so whatever people situation is. But it's like bonkers. My mind by people would wait to be able to secure your future. It's like oh I don't have the money find it no different than I you and I and everybody else our community there are many moments in your in your path that you run out of my. I was a high five figures in debt with no stable income to speak of when I came into this. I figured that's crazy. If you don't know cases guys it's just it's our. It's our flagship program. Teachable had ability. Melissa teach people how to do virtual prize for fifteen minutes on stage in green sequin dress and her and I was like who is this. But you said you need an email less and you ask. People RAISE THEIR HANDS IN THE ROOM. Who's got an email now's email us. And then I took a look and four months later as the now my life is completely unrecognizable from what an I cannot I've been I've had same as cool. Big Fancy gigs and I have never had the level of financial security than I have now even today even today so good. You know what I'm GonNa do. We actually have. It's not paced you guys but we actually have. I don't know this. Elvis might not work. We actually have a virtual boot camp that we have coming up. Let me just see. I don't know if I could find the find the link for but final link for all actually posted here. I should have grabbed it beforehand. The Huila literally have a boo boo. Can't coming up here is coming up that we basically obviously. It's not the same as what I can do in person. But it's a significant three hours. Where I'm hot seating people in hot seating entrepreneurs biggest other. They're having right now in line and I'm helping them have it I'm helping the online right now and do things like like Deborah when it is powerful. Is that you know you. You could have one hundred percent be been in a conversation of negative news and no matter which way we we are all living in this world and the way that we process. What's going on determines what our story is. And we're writing our story right now and nuclear having some your best week ever and I just had my top march was my top cash. The door months ever in my life almost sixty thousand powerful. And you're doing it remotely working from wherever you're working from right now and I think you know I know coaching for second for new. Right now is something that your attention to is that you are paying attention to what's happening out there and you're giving more frequently and so when you look at your schedule what you're working on right now at rush you. WanNa look at. What does my calendar where flight? And if you're like a bunch of eating right then you need to clear the meetings and need to find somebody else to do the meetings to consolidate the meetings or you need to put a timer where the ten minute meeting versus a thirty minute meeting so that you can do more of that. All the county looks like that. What happened is when we have a win. We often settled back into somewhat of a comfort zone. There's anything that chronic viruses showed me. How uncomfortable things can get quickly and that you must be able to pivot so entrepreneurs like they're so attached to what they sell and they spent years trying to figure out what their needs shes. Listen it's not about your niche. It's actually about just go out and help people. What'S THE URGENT CHALLENGE. You're saying speak into it and create relief relief around that and so you're not selling fashion design. You're not selling you know perfectionist coach. You're not selling You're actually selling a solution and a benefit right. What's the benefit a stylist working with? You right now. Well I mean the benefit might be that you actually look a million bucks online right. It might be that you can do virtual gals now the benefit might be. You know what I'm saying so like how do you stand up my income artist? I literally have been trying to get her forever to do makeup. And now we've created. She didn't Peter Hundred Bucks for a couple of hours and she did it for a couple of US online and now like she should be making that offer like every week she should be selling into it for two weeks during a virtual workshop two weeks or even one week every me and every Friday during the ritual workshop for a hundred bucks and bring a hundred Bucks Brad and they're on that virtual workshop when she teaches us how to do makeup. She should make us another offers to stop. Thinking like money is dirty money. You have a more checks you can write to people or affected by the Krona Virus Fender present true. There are a bunch of charities that I would not have been eight hundred. Somebody come at me. Like what about the homeless population? What about the prison population? What about what's going on with them and I said this was God's honest truth was like I wasn't doing anything with those populations beforehand. What I did before was signed petitions in handwriting and hope that the world got better and be pissed about whatever was going on and how I'm able to sign petitions and write big checks and see what's going on and just help however I can. I wasn't in that population beforehand but at least I can pay attention to the causes that matter and I can empower the people in my community. Who are here for what it is that I'm doing to then be involved in whatever populations they're involved in there so somebody said that that was really popular. They said they said why. Do People think that money is limited right? Now it's just exchanging hands and as I could so true if you think about it if it's coming out of your bank account and going somewhere else I would make sure that the coming out of your bank account like and I don't need. This is not advice day by I did not pay three of my mortgages at this is not advice mortgages just and what I did was invested in a business coach and and I learned how to I wasn't business. I cared about at the time. It would stay right because I didn't I didn't I wasn't following anybody like me online or Deborah. It was so it was real estate and so I literally I literally didn't my mortgage and I found a way to pay twenty one thousand dollars which was brutal but two months. I I in the skill made that money back and that's a game changer. Never accent so it's like you know. What are you a besting in right now? Are you investing in the fear or you investing in the transfer of success the tapping right now and I hope that whatever your best again learning how to write email copy learning how to do live? I don't recommend that you weren't social media. I I really don't I don't recommend even that you blog. I don't recommend that you podcast. I I don't recommend that you do any of that. I because the challenges is you. Don't own that real estate even if you put.
"hurwitz" Discussed on Yeah, She's Driven
"There's people right now who are paralyzed and I did a post on my personal page. Yesterday my uncle went onto it in Canada and I something along the lines of like you know. Stop beating the negative news. I'm paraphrasing stop. Reading the negative news like focus yourself on purpose. Now's the time to work and you wrote really work Chande. And I'm I'm reading between the lines. 'cause I don't know what to tell by the words that he's kind of like really like this is the time to work either confused or that. I'm being a jerk right or insensitive and it's like no like somebody's power we eat right right and yeah war. We all got round where we can't go to. Iran's separate that you were in a mastermind of ours which is alive today event clients and video sales letters online position. And you that point. I was still doing my very first. Two-day live event have been completely online in the last several years and I have been gearing up for the last six months to do this big today. Event in coming for show business. I had been avoiding doing shows because I knew once I got into production it was GONNA be production had on it was gonNA have to be Broadway level and I was going to be super perfectionist engineer. Happy Year people complain about two months. You half a year of your life into this Abed and now like so. They're harder. At that point. It was still happening. This was the first week of March. Everything was still happening. Sorta right so much changed so fast so at that man I was still going forward and we were kind of bolstering up like yes we can do this right and I told you that I was excited because I had X. number people in the room small event like thirty forty people in the room. And your great. How can we double that? I'm like time to send a liquid and so you give me the great idea to offer each of the guests that were already coming. The opportunity to bring a friend for free. Like actually offer scholarships. I Love Scholarships on Oakland Scholarships. So so I did that and I literally in my car on the lunch break pulled out a laptop hooked up to the hotel. Internet and throughout that note to all of the attendees and took I literally voice memo language because I tend to overcomplicate. Thanks and I like chicken voice. Memo as language United Methodist were standing this event and I speak the email to her. Like I speak this email to edit a short email. It's like a real short email not as big long sales trying to get anything it comes from that are asking giving like see so. You're these people become this event and knew the value was and so we went out and so we're doing the event anyway. You know which was all true. You can bring a friend. Here's what you have to do. You know your reply this email. Few frat exactly. I got instant engagement. I filled five more spots within a day. Which was actually at Max like. I didn't have any more stays. I I did actually fill out the room. And some of those people who would not have known about me at all otherwise are now in my community and coming into my programs. I'm getting ahead of myself a little bit. But that that worked like gangbusters and it was really exciting with that. Was that the tip of the iceberg. It was actually the domino effect and it was a cascade from their of seeing. Okay this is a time and this at this point people were just starting to get like some people were freaked out. Some people were right but it was the beginning of it and I realized Oh like this is a time like Shanta sang to step forward to lead. Like what is my thing. I'm not going to go out there and be a medical authority. I'm not talking politics. I'm not getting involved in any of the things I would normally not get involved in but I'm going to get involved in what I do. I'm GonNa do that front and center help as many people as I can front and center with that and I'm going to invite those people to come out of the shadows and do whatever it is they can now and because I'm pushing people who are like procrastinating. On writing a book or creating their masterwork we're going into leadership in their own communities whether that's their living room or their family or their drastically synagogue in my case you know and and it's been extraordinary to see people come forward and say yes. I want that and yes I want more of that and so I'm with you get a couple of times. I'll get somebody coming back going. Why are you telling people that now? Is the time like be out there. Why are you telling visit who is now is an opportunity? This is not an opportunity. People are dying like yes. People are dying and it's an opportunity for you. Yeah your your to do well in. So it's it's interesting. There's a there's one particular woman is a nurse in our case private program and she watched alive. I did the other day and she was like. I'm doing my best like doing my best. She's like I'm working tirelessly in the hospital and she's like China do the pace program trying to not like you know default on payments and I feel like we got you grow rightly so I so it's like sometimes like even letting people know and her commitment was to stay. Her commitment was derise commitment. Who while the Important distinction like what are you committing to underneath the surface? Like you didn't end up doing that event. You had to cancel out of that. We'll get into that writer said to our clients. I sent her private message. I WENT IN ON A. I'm on a thread with every coach might company. I don't know how you have right out. Probably about forty right. I'm on. I'm on a thread with all my coaches. I can go in and I said you know who's who saw those coach in pace this this beautiful nurse and Shannon messages me right away. She's like me so I've coached Shannon on what to do and I said this is a perfect opportunity for this client to not be in this conversation that I have to do it all out you and I know Debra. We have clients with members instead of hardcore that are making multiple six figures a year. Sometimes seventy years I can think of two right now making seven figures year and they barely have team and so I look at this woman going ahead faster because now she's working with hardcore works Our virtual assisting company if we can we can manage virtual systems made sure that we could take all the work she would have done. That would have been admin work even like finding finding joint venture partnerships even doing the online. Show the interviews like and it. Doesn't you know what I'm talking about? But I'm just saying the things that she would have done even like if somebody needed to create content online. You could actually write the content. A journalist do it better speaking. There is a way no way right now for you to accomplish anything you want at still give and in this case our nurse. She's obviously she's got limited type and she probably not the gossip so now the whole plan within seconds then seconds of a whole new plan that she can execute and we want to and we're all connected as a committee not I fear for the people who are sitting in isolation trying to do it or conversation that's challenging so you've got an email from somebody yesterday pulling out of something that was going to be happening where I was going to pay her like. I was hiring somebody and she said like everything's crazy. Everything's changed and I literally like my email back to her. After I was like hold on. Let me sit with this for a minute and come back to you and then when it came back to her I was like who do you have in your corner right now. Like who have coaching you. Who's in your community? Who's who are you seeking wise counsel from so that you can actually stay on track what you care about because this is like. I'm scared I'm going away. And we don't make our best decisions from their prefrontal. Cortex offline we go into fife later freeze. We do not have access to our better angels in that moment now. No point and you know and I'll play devil's advocate on that please. There's the piece of like if I reached out to somebody and they pulled back. I would never come back. And the reason why wouldn't come back is because I would be I would actually be fearful at. They could hold my vision or dream in their leadership to be able to help me create whatever results I was gonNA create. We need strong leaders right out to ride new. You do this pivot you sell out of the event. Things are looking great. You've extra people kind of coming forward and you're like okay now. The virus streaked in there yet. Opt I can do this exact day before. California's said Nope nope back from the emotions. A failure and shifted to what we teach my son all the time which is mistakes. Make us better right and so this is. This is a classic mistake six months year life. Right there's some Ocean Tagalog up so you it yet. What do you pivot into? So I took the live event and I shifted it so I did two things right away. First of all I wrote the email to everyone covering all the bases so it was like your ticket is safe. It's GONNA BE PORTED OVER TO THE NEW EVENTS. I've got a ton of Swag Sang. Live event twenty twenty. Still going to happen. Twenty twenty or just GonNa move it so your ticket is safe and will be ported over and and then a bunch of other points about just how we're GONNA handle it and I made the decision to do a livestream the following Friday not the entire two day event but just a big chunk three hour livestream not had done any. I'd not done anything like that before so I was like all right. I don't know what I'm GonNa do yet. I was all going to be in person. We'll figure it out but I sent the email as we want to do. Make the declaration. Make the commitments. Figure it out later and now I sent out the email I sent out that email. I had a complete twenty four hour like I gave myself permission to meltdown. I gave myself permission to have the feelings and beyond my on that night and eat ice cream and all that stuff right and then on Saturday I turned on the news when Haha Okay and now I see I need to manage this low of information so that I can be where I need to be on Sunday. I started to go out into the world and realize people are still smiling in. Okay and happy and social distancing this again two weeks ago so much has changed but there was still sanity and I realized that at that moment seem for the week had to be. Take back your sanity yourself on. This is really good so so this is something that so we talk about being generous inside the community. Whatever's actually demonstrating is yes intelligence but it's also generosity.
"hurwitz" Discussed on Meet the Thriller Author: Interviews with Writers of Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense Books
"This one. This one's pretty brutal and there's a lot of you know one of the things that interest me so much with axes that he's a character who lives in the real world with you and I so we you know we never get to see James Bond. Go home or Jason Bourne have an awkward encounter right with the single mother in get pulled a new an HOA meeting Condo. He lives and so. Evan is one of these archetypal characters who I grew up loving. You know like Jack Reacher Joe Pike or you know bond or born But he lives in the same world that we do and so the vacillation between that sort of classic Lone Wolf assassin type character Contrasted with him trying to figure out how to function in everyday. Life is where a lot of the fun of the series comes for me. Yes it really blew me away when I read or Phoenix was. That was that because mentioned you. Don't read that and the other novels dealing with me as a son and every it's like yeah like everyday life. Was that something that you before you started to write the series of the first books. We thinking about that from the beginning. Well I took a lot of time. You know I was. I had a concept for this book. That was a little bit afraid of it and I wanted to wait. I wrote like three or four other books I just let it keep percolating on a back burner because I really wanted to write something that I thought might be worthy of being on a shelf with these characters we love you know like Jack Reacher Harry Bosch And that was one of the breakthrough realizations that I had was. I wanted him to. You know he's he's got he's UCD. He lives his life by the assassins ten commandments. But I thought what about if we meet him right when he's trying to kind shatter through the way he's always lived in the rules that have always bound his life and he's trying to shatter through into a new understanding of himself and that's constantly contrasted with these interactions. He has with the single mother district attorney who lives downstairs from him. You know who got chemistry with? But if she ever knew what he did for a living she'd have to arrest him and you've got an eight year old boy. Peter who's very much his you know has echoes of Zone kind of foster home slash orphan upbringing. And there's all these different to to to hold these mirrors up to him as he's trying to forge his way to understanding and to try to learn you know what the strange languages of intimacy that he never had in his life before. So there's a lot more room for someone that texture I think and when I realized that that was a key component of the series was finally ready to start typing in earnest. As do you do a lot of the outline your stories beforehand? Or did you start writing these? Not In full. I have a sort of rolling outline. Is I call it? Which is just a big collection of bullet points and I kinda shape up the next chunk of what I'm writing out of the clay of that outline is go Outline tends to live and breathe and grow along with the book that I'm writing until at the end you know. It's all been absorbed into the novel so I need to keep the. I need to keep the outline an outline stage sort of fluid throughout the writing to make sure that I always have room to respond in the learn more from the story and the characters as I'm writing them had read that you put a lot do a lot of research like you actually have fired although weapons that has fired Every book you you put in a lot of research beforehand. Yeah I did. I did a lot of mixed martial arts fighting You know to train for that which is not to imply. Many good at Mostly you know go get. Go get banged around the law. But yeah I mean I I I feel like if I go out into the field and experience everything myself can write about it with the kind of telling detail a sort of Patino verse. It really puts the reader there and gives them a front row seat to the action. So that when I'm writing about a gun or a fight or you know hacking or a location or anything that I get into if I've kind of experienced it myself I feel like I can write about it in a way that doesn't just make it a conglomeration of all types of scenes that we might have seen before in popular culture and it helps me make it more specific into bring the reader to kind of help carry the reader across the suspension of disbelief.

So thanks for listening to the interview with Gregor Woods Evans. A big fan of the artistic vodkas. That was a piece of you they come from. The research was me. It would have been bourbon. I'm primarily a bourbon drinker but avenue. He's very OCD. And so the vodka represents a real kind of cleanliness for him. So it's the purest spirit into it's a sort of. It's almost like an atonement ritual for him Of of a way that you know. He's got the cleanest apartment he's got. There's no smudges anywhere on the counter. He's he's unbelievably meticulous. And fastidious and vodka is the alcohol most does that And so you know that's the end of the day every everything that I do has to be in service of the story. It can't just be the things that I the most personally. And that's that's what you tim. The best and so. What's cool is when I write about some of these vodka because the sales in their companies go up. I mean they managed to sell more so I get lots of gifts from vodka. Companies around the world of some of the world's finest vodkas which is not a bad perk. It's a cool boon this writing series like this one because I did the same thing when I was when I read the books like go google. The vodka should try some really good.

Yeah it makes me like I should actually train again. Well give it a go so I had read that or for next as being developed at the TV series is that any updates on that I'm working on that right now. I'm working with a screenwriter called Derek. Kolstad who created the John Wake Franchise And we're trying to figure out how to carve it out in in the TV. So I'm working hard on that right now. it's still in development stage so as soon as that gets Further along I'll be posting updates. You can find me on twitter and facebook and instagram. And all those places of the inadequate goes it'd be great to that you also working on one of the sweet girl with Jason Memorial. So may that's that's already shooting that'll be out from net flicks in the first quarter of twenty twenty one and that's a screenplay wrote with A screener called Philip Eisner. It's the first thing I ever co wrote He created He wrote a movie called Event Horizon. He's a magnificent screenwriter. And we worked on this together and we sold it about a year ago and it's already through production now. It's an post Jason Momoa Marisa. Tomei it's a great little cast and it'll be kind of a revenge. Dark revenge thriller from Net. Flex us do you when you're reading a when you're working on a screen played Do you go back and forth like reading reading writing a book and then we're GONNA scream player. Is it one of the one at a time? Well sometimes I prefer to do them one at a time but between this and you know the TV the script the comex other work. I don't I don't fully have the luxury of being able to just focus on one thing at a time in full anymore but I try and do it for stretches as long as I can manage. What's what's next for you in forever and smoke. Well if you read into the fire you know that the last three words sort of put everything we thought we knew about him and his world Into question and so. I'm we're going to be figuring out and seeing where he goes from there but that was that was something that the end of the fires. Probably the biggest cliffhanger of any book I've ever written in terms of the whole plot is resolved but it opens up a whole new kind of understanding of this character. And so we've got to see where that's going to take you know what's been the feedback from the readers from your fans about that excited about the new chapter coming. It's been a wonderful. It was a great book tour reactions. Been great their Their reviews have been great. I got to see a lot of readers. It's been very exciting for me to go out and you know see this character. I thought up. Kinda take hold out there in the world. That's immensely gratifying. But we always hope for is writers So it's been a really great run especially with the reception of this book. You books to be published in so many different languages. I mean that was going to be surreal in all these different languages pretty special so before. I let you go any advice for aspiring writers out there who listening well for your first draft do not let perfection be the enemy of the good you know as other people have remarked. You can't fix a blank page. Give yourself permission to just write down. Get down to vomit draft no matter how bad you can always make it better. And it's really about carving out the time making that time Sacra- san like there's always going to be other things that are more important or more pressing or more urgent than working on a novel. It seems are working on day. Thirty two of four hundred to write a rough draft of a novel or whatever it is and you just have to determine that that time is sacred and be selfish and burning and protecting it.

"Everybody this is Allen with the thriller author and the phone. I Have Gregg Hurwitz so happy to have you on the podcast. How're you doing today? Greg? I'm good. Thanks for having me on. Thank you for coming on so when they ask you right off the bat. So what made you to start writing? Oh man it's the only way that my brain ever worked. So when I was a kid we were not allowed to watch television in my house which was a travesty. I was so upset about it but what that meant was that we just read all the time my sister and I would go to the library. Check out books that just you know stacked up all the way to Chan's and so reading was sort of my. It was a perfect match for the way that my brain function thought and stories and I remember having a conversation with my sister and I was a kid. 'cause I my first little mysteries and illustrated them with crayons. When I was in fifth grade and I remember asking her when she was going to write her book because I just assume that anybody who loved stories would want to be a writer also because it was just the only way that I ever sort of encountered or filtered the world And she you know she's now a doctor kind of looked at me sideways and said well though I just like reading. I don't actually want to be a writer so I think it was just the default if the factory issue software default for my brain. Yeah you have a very impressive background of I was reading your upset. You had a masterson. Six fear and tragedy. Is that from all that love to read just wanted to when you decided to go to school you. You went into that type of the studies. Yeah well I was in Undergrad. I studied English and psychology. Because I thought that would be the best combination of you know fields of study. It's always funny like when you look back when I was doing and I was just choosing the things that I love the most and interested me the most but I look back in hindsight. I did a lot of work with Freud and young and Shakespearean tragedy and of course with Freud. You read those short. You read his The the patient the case studies that he wrote up and they're like these perfect little short stories right and Carl. Young never really wrote everything he wrote about was about. Story and storytelling Joseph Cambell you know sorta like just the cliffnote young and then you look at Shakespearean tragedies and their among the first thrillers these very structured Convention Bound Tales of Lust Intrigue and murder right that are based on sort of pre themes and motifs. That were already familiar to him and when I look I just chose all these things because I really loved them but when I look back on it in it all made sense that I was obviously following all these things that I love into my you know into this field that I work in and so you always ever. Since you're a young you've been wanting to be a writer. It's always been in the back of your head when you're going through these studies. I started my first novel when I was nineteen. I was an Undergrad And I had a lot of luck early and you know sold it when I was when I was got I think. Twenty two twenty three years old maybe And so you know. I was given a very fortunate opportunity to be able to write full time almost right out of school and was also. It was the first album. Was it also the in the in the thriller type Genre Cold? The Tower you know I wrote part parts of it. I wrote when I was nineteen years old and it's funny because on the one hand I was so fortunate to be able to get that first book published by the other token You know it's like no one should ever be held accountable for anything that they thought when they were nineteen. Have I have some stuff published from that age It was a very dark twisty little serial killer novel called the Tower and we always of the generous reader. Yeah I mean I was heavy into Stephen King You know when I was in Fifth Grade. I remember reading under my bed with a flashlight. Salems lodden particular. Just scared the hell out of me. I love pet cemetery That whole early run. I was very into Peter. Benchley to who wrote jaws and the island in the deep So I was very much drawn this stuff. That was twisty turny dark. And you know Stephen King in particular is a very big influence. I remember just thinking how amazing it was that he could put this. You know combination of familiar words down in an unfamiliar way on the page and elicit so much emotion me. I thought it was a kind of magic trick. I wanted to learn his book on writing such a great book and for for aspiring writers. So you've written I didn't realize he'd written comic books. Screenplays You've written just a mediums out there. Do you find the approach. Is it similar or is it a very different when you're reading like for comic book or there or a novel well they're all different muscles? I mean it helps very much to be in shape overall but you know writing a comics. A bit of a different muscle than writing. A script is different than writing a TV pilot. So so they they drawn different things but they can all inform each other and and obviously what under scores them all the foundations our understanding of character and tone language. Those are common but there's there's different constraints and different opportunities and all the forms into the fires the latest X. Novel Such a love that series Can you tell us Listeners familiar with with the latest Keith. Also bought into the fire. Yeah Well Orphan Act is the character. Who's WHO's the protagonist of my last five bucks and I you know he was taken out of a foster home to Egypt. Twelve and trained in a very dark program in the dod to be a government assassin. Because they were trying to take these kids and train them to be fully dispensable weapons and he became an amazing assassin All sorts of training at a certain point left program went on the run from the government who trained him and he now needs him because he doesn't just know where all the bodies are buried he buried most of them himself and now he's got this one eight hundred number. It's one eight five five nowhere which you can call yourself at. People who are in desperate need can get a hold of death row number and they call him and when they call him any answers He will come to help people who have nowhere else to turn and so into the fire. is the newest and the phone rings. And it's a guy who called him. His name is Max. Meriwether and maximum gotten an envelope from his his very successful cousin. He's sort of the black sheep in a in a big family with lots of successful business. People and his cousin gives them the envelope and says look if anything ever happens to me. Open this envelope Which is a story that we've all seen a bunch of times. And what usually happens is the hero goes on and vanquishes his foes and you never have to think about the poor bastard who got this envelope but in my story what happens is is. His cousin is brutally murdered and Max opens the envelope and it contains a single key and series of events. He gets a hold of that one. Eight five five to know her phone number and he calls Evan. Evan comes in to help him. 'cause there's this crew of people who are who are murdering their way to to Max and has to figure out how to protect them and find out what the hell is going on and it's a it's a book that starts really small and intimate and then what happens confronting it's like the mass keeps sliding off to reveal something bigger and more ominous beneath the stakes. Just get bigger and bigger and bigger and I said a challenge for myself with this book to put him in the most dangerous and precarious position. He's ever been in in the series and sure enough. That happens right around chapter forty four here. He winds up in a position that you know. I wrote him in the kind of corner that I wasn't sure if I could write my way out of is not not that. He's had to walk in the park and the other folks but you really put him through the ringer and this one. That's right yeah.

Daniel the Russo story in that first film, and I think that was something that connected to people all over the world doesn't matter if you're in this country, you're anywhere overseas.

"For a lousy hundred bucks a year. Gregg Hurwitz coming up in just a moment. Poke law about the fact that win art forms age. They divide into intellectual art forms. Intellectual products that nobody likes, but the critics and popular products that really kind of empty calories. I mean, I think that I talked about this in the movies that nobody goes to see the series movies anymore. But everybody goes watches these superhero movies, which are really not very good in the old days. The popular movies were also the great movies things like the wizard of Oz. Gone with the wind Mr Smith goes to Washington, those were Oscar nominated popular top of the box office films. But they were also great films. One of the reasons I talk to thriller writers, as I feel that in the novel, which has become virtually a dead, art form, the thriller crime stories and science fiction and fantasy are the are the forms that are still alive and are attracting some of the best writers, my friend, Gregg Hurwitz. I don't know if you're a best writer now. It's my friend. I was for that one. You are terrific. Your new book is out of the dark, and we'll put it on the screen.
