"The armstrong and getty shows should have dug up the audio. I don't know if you heard what it sounded like at the kabul airport last night as the final flight to golf. Have you seen the picture of the commander of the eighty second airborne getting on the plane. He was officially the last u s servicemen to step onto the plane before it took off and It was in You know night-vision picture and as soon as that plane got in the air. It was constant gunshots from the taliban firing off the rifles and celebration of having complete control now of the entire country including the capital. And everything else. Somebody should tell them. That's unsafe to fire their weapons in the air like that. It's terrible i do now. So there's this picture. That's making the rounds. I'm highly dubious of this. There is a black hawk helicopter which the taliban now has quite a few of one of the greatest may be the greatest single pieces of piece of armament that exists on the planet outside of a nuclear weapon in terms of You know just fighting in a war and they've got a bunch of but have you seen the picture going around with somebody hanging from it. It looks like not no okay. So as making the rounds last night it's a blackhawk hop black hawk helicopter over the sky in kabul with a rope coming down to where it looks like somebody's neck and then the caption was from whoever that talibans using our helicopters to hang people. I don't believe it. A lot of military people say there's no freaking way. They got somebody who can fly one of those things So i don't know do i misunderstand. I mean somebody is hanging from it like being like being hanged from the bottom of a black hawk helicopter. It just. It's one of those two things one i thought would have. I got a black hawk helicopter like that too. It's just one of those things. That's a little too perfect. It was just a little too perfect. I'll candidates either them. Photoshop that or the russians are whoever but a lot of people in the right jumped on that of this. Is you know what joe biden is given us the etcetera etcetera. Joe biden has given us something horrible and very very crappy. But i find it hard to believe that that actually happened. And then some videos came out some They're they're kind of funny if they weren't so sad of it would appear to be some of the taliban attempting to fly some of these helicopters and not have any luck getting them off the ground. Now we left a whole bunch of stuff behind that they technically have. But the general mackenzie said yesterday look. We've disabled that aircraft. There's no way anybody's ever flying those ever. So they're they're they're they're not going to be used. Good to hear yeah. I'm sure some of the technology will be sent to the chinese for a price but the on the other hand. I've seen the picture on if you've seen the picture where a whole bunch of taliban all in fresh brand new looking uniforms all holding our guns wearing our boots with our bullets. That stuff's all real in very usable. Some of the videos. Going around of the stockpiles of weaponry and cash or just astonished. Really is you know the. There's the humiliation of it. There's the fact that had absolutely malevolent forces now much better armed. There's the tax payer dollars aspect of it. I mean as i said earlier that helicopters famous picture now of the the taliban moving into the airport and surveying what we left behind including this big beautiful helicopter might be blackhawk. I'm not sure but that helicopter cost the parks and rec budget for your town for the next fifty years taxpayer dollars and those dollars are gone. And can't go to make your parks nice for the kids to plan damn shamed elizabeth holds our were a sensible black turtle. Look i figure staked armstrong and getty and now here's their final thoughts with the result. So here's your host for final thoughts getty.

"That our dear friend and colleague robin miller had passed at the age of seventy one. A man hobie dearly missed we have a nice tribute. Voiced by lee dickey. A true friend always tells you the truth. Even when it's hard to hear and robin miller was that friend to open wheel racing born in indianapolis a native hoosier robin could not wait to be part of the action. At a young age he stitched for jim. Hurtubise at the indy-500 drove usak midgets in the seventies and eighties. All while covering the racing scene as a newspaper reporter for the indianapolis star robin style was very matter of fact calling out owners and drivers alike as long as they keep treating this like a monopoly game. Nobody's going to respect them but he was always quick to sing the praises of those same people when they earned it. What a future. This kid's got pretty good way to start. is eating. Apples motor speedway career after making his mark as a writer. Robin brought his distinctive storytelling style to broadcasting flourishing at espn speed channel. And who could forget. Those grid runs with nbc sports. How is it. This guy has a job and i don't 'cause you took the by and i got a lot of debt race fans always look forward to whatever robin would say knicks whether it be on it or in his mile bag from rice magazine even if they only wanted to passionately disagree. Even if you didn't love robin you respected him. For speaking the truth he was the one who pushed us. All to make the sport he loved so much better. There's no disputing. he did. Just that as only robin miller could robin miller. I saw him this morning. This one's for you baby. We love you robin everything that you do. The motorsport hall of fame inducted day for cancer and leukemia. For lengthy tom. He survived by his sister. Diane her family and the entire motorsport community godspeed. Robin well robin miller. Certainly one of a kind. I'd take some solace in knowing just how much that that weekend the double header at indianapolis meant to him being inducted in the motorsports hall of fame when he got to spend the whole day with. Aj foyt among other legends. Mario andretti and i know how much that meant to him. On a personal side to me. When i first came on with with nbc. I didn't know much about motorsports in general and certainly didn't know much about indycar racing. He never held that against me instead. He just regaled with tales from fifty years ago from ten years ago from five years ago he never had too little time for you and his sense of humor was just off the charts. It was wicked. I never walked away from a conversation with robin without without a little chuckle. So that's he meant to me. I think what. I'll remember about him. Being at indianapolis motor speedway a couple of weekends ago. Kelly was that they had that really nice tribute forum in the media center. But i think he was more enthused. I'm sure i know he was touched by that. And that meant a lot to him. But i think what might have been. The highlight of that weekend was interviewed. Jimmy johnson and talk to about and we saw jimmy taking a salty with them there during that wonderful piece and robin asked him about the indy. Five hundred and got to talk to him about all that that is what the essence of robin miller was constantly talking to all the big names as we see. Here mario andretti. Aj foy johnny. Rutherford bobby unser and taking that information and putting breaking news out there but putting a really sharp columns. He pulled no punches. I mean again like all the faces. We decided that video. Dan gurney j. Foyt mario andretti. He didn't write. Puff pieces about these guys. That wasn't why they respected him. So much and conservative befriend. It was because of the respect they had for journalism and his opinions and the fact that he was always stay true to what he believed in and he had a huge legion of fans who read and hung on his every word. Because of that you know just to put a nascar take on this because everybody knows what a great indycar reporting was but on there forgetting two thousand and three. He broke three of the biggest stories and ask are they. Are he broke that. Rjr was leaving as the title sponsor. Broke that the southern five hundred was moving off of labor day from darlington. Fontana any broke that. Brian francis taking over at the nascar chairman and that to me spoke volumes just about the connections and the level of reporters. That robin miller had the auto racing use a giant. Yeah i think the word that you just use. Respect is something that when i every time that i saw him. That's the first thing that came to my mind. The respect that he had in the world of motor sports. And yes i know that that open-wheel and indycar was his forte. Basically but he knew so much about every single form of motor sports. He knew the people that were in there. And it didn't make any difference what your name was and how successful you were as you pointed out. He didn't mind Being that person that either ask the hard question or said the things that other people were only thinking about saying. But wouldn't dare go there. And i i had that much respect for him and which i would have known him even better but i did enjoy stories and the things that he had to talk about. And you only come across people like that every so often and still is someone that will be missed in the world of motorsports. There will never be another quite like robin miller. Thank you guys. we'll be back. Are you tired of wasting time. Making trips to the grocery store. Waiting in checkout lines and overpaying for groceries every week we thought so luckily there's a better way. Misfits market.

You know, it's like Robin Miller telling me about Roger Penske having the conversation with his his engineers about what the heck's going on here and trying to figure out a solution. And Tony. What's interesting about this? You can have a solution. But if it comes down to a misfortune, if you're in the wrong place at the wrong time, you could have the best car out there.

"Do well. Yeah i agree. One hundred percent. Spencer is a very talented young racer. And they've they've done all they can with this team to try to get it to where they wanted and certainly bring in danny gill and then making sure they've got owners points now especially this season is a big big deal for them and south. I know you got some brainy news to talk about. We were mentioning it. Part of the last segment to yes to joining him in the booth as the driver analysts for the faint series unfortunately is not bubble. Wall is tyra ruddick. Ou former ski racing teammates. I can get behind. That should be just in combo. Oh man from teammates to booth mates peter saturday afternoon as for the truck race just got truck extended expanded rates whichever race either way. It's gonna be fun. It'll definitely be fine just fox force one and putting all these random drivers gathering combos like you said and l- previously has brought together a great duos in the booth. So i'm really started to see. How plenty and riddick team up together with alexander. Of course as we mentioned they were teammates. Once upon a time in the nascar camping world truck series at brad keselowski racing so they've got the rapport. It's just the whole whole different ball of wax of these guys have learned when you get up in the tv booth and have to talk about race cars or race trucks in this case rather than drive race cars or race trucks so all's well and good there and we will move forward into another subject that we haven't gotten to yet and that is the race that happened earlier on in. This show actually started before we went live and sef the i racing world is coming alive again next week. We've got the car pro invitational that's coming back for. Its first race at virtual bristol dirt but we had the indycar racing challenge come back with their first race earlier tonight. Alex polo getting the win in that. And i know in general you've wanted to You've wanted to chat about the whole. I racing just because it's kind of a unique time considering we're not back to normal and were yet a year on from when all of this kind of exploded during the very initial part of the pandemic at least for nascar. They've embraced it for many years at this point and for the nascar side of irish saying you gave sanction their own series nascar coca cola racing series earlier this week atlanta. They've had the Saturday night thunder in you name. It they had a a series for just about last year. Any car manned. I was gonna say you went where i was going with. That indycar is the exact reverse of this scenario. Someone who competed in indycar regularly for several years on i racing the last time indycar officially sanctioned. That series was two thousand thirteen since. Then yes. there's an indycar on ivory racing. Yes it's up to date with schedule the car but it's not officially sanctioned. There is no a indycar ease or series. If i remember correctly the hassle just get indy-car onto the fours a console game and there's many in audience card side of the media and some indycar fans that tree. I racing like a joke. Could like a certain me member talking about before the show. honestly. I don't agree with the logic because one of reasons why indycar is not getting naming aside from their indycar challenge. They're not putting any effort into. I racing and as tom sane rather miller i was gonna say if you're not wanna call him out i will and seth. I don't mean to interrupt you. I just want to go straight to the fact that robin miller said in his mailbag this week tom on racer dot com that quote. He doesn't pay any attention and pretends like the ira sing events. Don't exist really. I don't get that like this is great promotion of the sport and you want to pretend like it doesn't exist come on well. I think robin's getting a little old in cranky advancing years. You know i mean look. He just doesn't see the correlation and see the value to it. As as a trading platform let alone freddie kind of entertainment. Now i will. I will say that for me. I think that the nascar sport deal was really cool when we didn't have real racing. But i honestly. I feel like i don't know if it's going to be if it's going to have quite the appeal this time although it probably will with the demographic that normally races on the sim You know. I just think that it was a great concept for filler when we needed one and and i do think that indycar needs to get its high horse and actually start sanctioning this this type of Racing again because they need to recognize that they can have talent that can come from this just as nascar. Has jacob been so you know. I think they need to indy cars. A brass tends to thumb their nose sometimes at things that they think are beneath them. Quite frankly and you know. I just think this is one of those cases and i think they need to wake up and realize that sim racing. It's valuable it's fun and it's entertaining all right. Seth you've got about thirty forty seconds. I know you wanted to make one more quick point equipped pointing a something. Robin miller said i racing will not replace real racing. It's not here to replace it. It's here as a compliment to it. Thank you that that is a very sensible point there and one that i think those of us who have been around the sim have preached for quite some time. There is no intention of i- racing to come in and replace real life racing. As seth said it's meant to go alongside real racing and in particular to promote the rio racing specifically as the cup series is doing with the pro invitational racist to promote the real racing. That is happening during that upcoming weekend. Gives kind of preview. If you will of what you're going to see over the weekend with that said we're gonna take a break. We're going to have more conversation coming.

"Hello and welcome to the art semi fiction. I am Robin Miller and I'm Jane Daily. What are we talking about today? We're going to continue our discussion that we started with tropes cliches. Stereotypes archetypes all bad. Yeah all bad so on the last one we define them and basically. They're all related. That all have to do with predictable either. Language simplified images of people or places. It's all predictable stuff. And we want to avoid being predictable. We want fresh and new. We want our readers to say I. I don't know who this person is. I'd like to get to know them. I The story has compelling aspects that I haven't heard before I don't know if the Butler's going to do it all those things so after after that talking about all of those those things tropes and cliches and stereotypes archetypes have you. Are you thinking about anything in your own writing? I'm distressed that you're GONNA ask me to define them again actually Jane would you? That is a test actually. No you don't get defined. We don't have time for that if we had time. I'd make you just to see squirm. Oh we don't so what we're GONNA do today is we're GonNa go through seven ways to basically avoid these problem areas and the first thing is if you're writing genre whatever genre that is k. Learned the tropes for that genre. Okay so what are they? If you riding a mystery are the tropes for that certain phrases are they you know the Butler did it today. are there. Typical scenes are typical. Ways that The whodunnit is figured out. Learn them. Because you can't really avoid what you don't know. Is there so part of how you do that? Read A lot. And if you see if you begin if Noah writer and somebody's are great at being fresh and somebody's you're like Oh. I read to their books on. I know exactly how this is going to go from the first chapter. I know who did it? And then who's going to be in love? I know they did it. Colonel Mustard did it with the pipe in the kitchen because they're so predictable right. Then unpack it. Oh you don't like that word surgically now all I can do is think unpack it all the time but try to figure out. How do you know it? Yeah how do you know it? Are you using an archetype? A totally stereotypical character issue using a pattern is formulaic. Is there a formula for sumit here than you do this? Then that happens and then they happily ever yet. So so you basically try to take apart. What you know is stereotypical stuff. Cliche tropes and figure out why and how that's happening and then avoid it well and that's that's the difference between knowing when you read a good book that that avoids those and then you read one in the same genre and you think what we've all we've all read that where we. I had no idea until the last page what was happening. I had no idea what was going to how that was going to end. Couldn't even fathom it and it was just delicious. It was delicious people when you have that kind of like a I referenced. My sister's keeper. That had I mean you the whole time. I'm thinking it's going to end one way And the twist. I mean I'm getting goosebumps because it was I I was so moved and I cried at the end of this book because it turned out. And I'm not GONNA do a spoiler I would encourage you to read it amazing amazing and that's what you want because you want you want engagement have. We all felt a little cheated. We're like I knew it was him well chapter. I knew I read. I read chocolate. You know I don't British chocolate when I just need a break from life and we know from the very beginning who's GonNa Fall in love with who so there's that predictability but it's the it's the setting it's the characters in. It's the things that are thrown in their in their way that make the book. What is it makes it interesting that yes we reading because I know I know they're going to get together in the end? Of course they are. That's what the whole thing is about a romance. But but one of the things I I put on here. The the tropes like a hunk and a flawless beauty for your love interest. Why do that that to me? Yeah that's been done. That's that all the that's what all of Romances and if you know the setting is somewhere where the male has to take off his shirt while he's working you know and flexing his muscles and sweats beating off of his chest. Right that's that's trophy to So you know what about Iceland for a setting for moments you know where you never get to see what exactly I mean. There's there's so many ways if you learn the tropes to avoid them so that's the number one learn the tropes larvae honora. Then don't do them. All right. Number two is comes off of that right original plots and characters. Now we talked about this a little bit before So don't don't say I loved Hunger Games so much I'm going to write. You know the exact same story basically now but with just different titles don't write another. Mary poppins a Quirky. Nanny comes in saves the day. No don't do it. Don't write a print. Slaying a dragon to save a princess unless You you're not as into musicals because we're so musicals in my house because I have a little musical theater stud is one of my children If you seen Shrek the musical no I saw the movie. The Oh my gosh. I wasn't really found in the movie. Names all right but musical. See it and it's on you can. I don't know if it's on Netflix or Amazon prime. Or whatever it's four months so you can see the Broadway version of it. So quality cast that takes eight. Hopefully stereotypical cliche trophy. You know go get. There's A. There's a maintenance tower guard by a dragon. But what's the twist? The hero turns out to be an ogre. Beauty turns out to be whatever makes you love your own. Internal beauty isn't about flawless skin. Beautiful Hair it's like all these things are twisted in that show so it took the tropes and just flung up on the prince wasn't valiant. He was a little turds what he was he was. He was horrible so it was just a great way of taking those tropes and turning on their ear. But if you don't writing original plot if you say I want the prince to be the valiant one and I want the girl to be in the tower and I want there to be a hero. I want there to be a bad guy and we've seen it. We've heard it. We've done it and you're GONNA get people phoning it in your just if they read the whole thing. There's not going to be engagement right right. And you've you've talked about my sister's keeper having twist mean an even the reaction I just i. I know that people are listening. Can't see it but you immediately went like that was great your whole body with goodness. We'll end just you know for those of you haven't read it. It is not a is not written by a Christian. I didn't find anything in their offensive. It was the but the plot was so so I mean who has a baby for their who gets a baby. Who's genetically programmed to be the perfect match for kidney for their other daughter. Yeah I mean who does have? It's a very it's A. It's a complete. The premise is awesome and the twists. And you didn't expect the story so you were tracking along with it meeting every detail and the more cliche the more trope Senate. The more stereotypes archetypes. You've got in it the more we think we know it. So we don't has caused attention right. I mean hands up who was like listened to somebody do a review of material class. That you you knew you kind of have listening. You're not right right you've already you've already got. It's the same thing for a book. If people think they know the material another people in the setting in the they're not gonNA they're not gonNA listen so even if you do inject something interesting in it. They're going to pass out. Yeah okay so by ORIGINAL PASTA. Characters make characters complex. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to know your characters to really make sure you flesh them out and don't make them a stereoty. No two dimensional cares. I mean cal- guys have qualities all bad guys have good quotas. Don't forget that and the more flawed your character is the more relatable. They are and the more interesting. I mean if we know I mean I'm GonNa. I don't want a middle-aged mom of four kids doing everything perfectly on a follower story. 'cause I'm back and I'm not doing it perfectly happy you know. That's not fun for me to see all the things I'm not. I wanted to see somebody. You know muddling through doing the best. They can with what they've got. And just you know that. That's real real in your connected to so. I put for examples Damsel in distress. Oh I'm so armee are that we're over that yeah we want the strong women characters we do not need to see another somebody waiting for a man to come out and sort out their life right. Here's one that again. We don't need another jovial chubby sidekick. You know we just don't need another one of those thank you very much. They've been done and for comic relief just so cliche so don't do it. Although if there is a part in a place where for jovial sidekick. I'd like your. I'd like to audition. So here's here's another way to avoid all of these tropes and things because in some of the stereotypical writing. You're not going to get. You're not gonNa see this too much and that is put your character in a painful awkward stretching situation more than one. Yes yes you cannot stay easily in shallow predictable waters if your main character is in real excruciating pain where the real character comes up so it's all well and good to say you know we were talking about another podcast about jealousy. Well I know law scriptures about that so I'm not going to deal with that issue than somebody something happens and you're like green is monster. Yes yeah yeah you're tested is when the truth of your beliefs and your character comes out so if they're just you know I shall go save the princess and everything's fine. There's a dragon you know what but put it an Interesting Dragon. Put something and you also want to keep throwing these throwing things at your main character. Yeah because it heightens the tension which we've talked about before. Yeah and you get you just get to see you will not get to see a character's true character unless they are tested in some way and then when you when they are. Don't make them be perfect. Don't make them just in one. You know pick up a sword. They've never picked up before and fight an army and be kill everybody in battle because they've never held a sword before that's unrealistic so again make him fall making sometimes make wounded. They do a little bit all right. Here's another way to avoid a trope your own Backstory so if you look at at your life and not necessarily all your best points but if you had to kind of do time line of the most important thing so k. The losses the successes the betrayal. The job promotion like good and bad things. Did it go into like a typical linear? You know everything just went. I thought it was host to and it did it. Yeah well it doesn't a right you know it just it our lives go like this and you end up. You'll I still can't believe I think she lied to me. I want proof I want. I want records that you lived in Montana. I think that just cracks me up. She has no body fat first of all. It's like negative four thousand degrees. Why do you think of him side by the Woodstove? Like you're saying Woodstove just cracks me up because it was a pellet stove and so would. I don't know just cracks me up but the fact I didn't feel the pellets. Don't match your nails with him anyway. Anyway we're digressing the point is is I would have never ever and would you have in your childhood. Said I expect my life to go to the point where I'm going to be past raising with my husband's church Montana in town of four hundred people. Yeah no no so that happened and it and it was a it was a very important part of your life and timing your life and the same thing. I do not plan on marrying somebody from another country. I plan on living in another country for about ten years of my life. I was looking for a quiet to save a little white picket fence. Get there stay there forever. That's what my thought was because my childhood was so chaotic. I thought I could just get out of college. Get the job. Have two point three kids the whole thing? Oh my gosh didn't turn out God's having a laugh with my life I I no longer say this is what we're seeing myself in five or ten years. I'm just down for today new. Who Do use your own story. The twists and turns in your own story and how they happen. They're not trophy right. They're not Syria typical right there. The day role who loves sidewalks gone to town of four hundred fifty where there is no such thing as a sidewalk whereas emmy the cockle thing now is. I'm going to be moving to a suburb. I haven't lived in civilization in like almost twenty years now..

"She's also vice president of a Bank. If I said, I understand all that, about you Jane, but I'd like for you to come at Tuesday at two o'clock and do something spend time on my project, your boss at the Bank would probably say. But this is when you're supposed to be doing something else. So an agent in publishers. We know in our windows, are you can say, no, I could do that on Tuesday afternoon, I could meet with you on Saturday morning, but your but because, you know, when you're open when your schedule can allow for something else to happen. Same thing with that agents and editors and also going back to it shows. It shows professionalism, as a if you're going to be a writer, and you're gonna get paid for writing. You are now a professional, which is the very definition of a professional as somebody who gets paid to do what they do. So the arrow professional writer deadlines are important, absolutely special also. I not get publishes the last one and I mean, there's a million reasons or ways that you can not get published. But here's one of my personal favorites. You should follow up immediately and frequently asking for updates because because we would never do the Hugh of hit send. So people are waiting there again. They are waiting twenty four seven their rate waiting. And if you do not get an answer within ten seconds, I'd say right again. Right. Did you get? Did you get exact what did you think? What did you think? What did you like it? Did you like it? Yes, because they love that agents and editors and publishers love that, again, we're, we're so taking the MEC this is so tongue in cheek but you would be surprised at how many people don't understand how the process even works. So even if it's it's fastest possible incarnation of submission. For example, we'll look at an agent an agent is not look at a regional work. They're going to look at your platform. They're going to do some research about you. They're going to if they happen to know that, you know, other people that are going to talk to them and say this person easy to work with you, you published with this person before. How did that go? They're going to look at other books that, that are on the market and how you're even fears just wonderfully written. It might be one intended are coming out. So yours are going to be lost in that noise. They're going to talk to the other people in the agency because they're not going to have competing titles. Right. So, so what would be a reasonable amount of time to follow up with someone my, my understanding is, I would leave the out love times, an agent or a for open submissions of publisher were an editor. We'll have actually on their guidelines, they'll say, don't call us ever don't, don't vote will. It. You know, if you have not heard within three months from us know that it was a no. So sometimes there's never a right time to follow up if you have a personal relationship with somebody so you, you met some, somebody out riders conference and editor showed interest in your concept said, would you please send three chapters? You've done that I'd say, wait a good month because I was going to say three months. Well, I'd say if you know them if you know them, then just a quick Email saying, just wanna check into you need anything else from me, and you know, love and cookies, Robin. That's enough. If you don't know them. So if it was if it isn't expl-, expressly stated in their guidelines that, that if you haven't heard from them in a certain period of time, assume it's a no move on with your life. If you haven't got that, that I would say, wait, those three months and then say I sent. I see, you know, a query letter sample chapters, whatever you've done three months ago, and I just wanted to know if you needed anything else for me is still we have you had a chance to, to, to look something along those. Yes something, but, but here's here's the really important thing. Keep it as brief as possible. Don't remind them of the you could say the title I wrote a book a memoir on. You know when I did whatever you asked for you asked for a query about when we discussed about at XYZ conference. So give give a title give a location and be concise his absolute possible, so that you're respecting their time because again, you're still you're still auditioning, and I and so show them that you respect their time. Be very profession. Professional thank them for even considering you and be out the door. It should. Be more than a few sentences so that you are respecting their time. So if you do those four things if you do not follow submission guidelines. If you always send more than his requested if you never pay attention to deadlines and dates and you follow up immediately. Frequently asking for updates. You are pretty much guaranteed that you are not going to get published. So if that's your goal do that. If you wanna get published, you might you might go on the opposite of everything. We just said, good plan. Good plan. Right.

Also, the organization will give you the opportunity to network with industry professionals, which is very important. You wanna be able to network because you we we would love to think that we can operate as writers in a little. Turret and do nothing except right? And send our words out in the world will love it. But we have to climb down out of the tower and actually talked to people and networking with industry professionals is very important. Also as Robin mentioned discounts to major writing conferences as a member of for instance, inspire. We get discounts to some of the other conferences that are in the area. So for me personally.

"robin miller" Discussed on The Art of Semi-Fiction

"The. Welcome to the art of semi fiction. I am Robin Miller. And I'm Jane daily today are going to be talking again about memoir, but we're gonna be talking about it in its place in fiction nonfiction and creative nonfiction. Okay. So I think first of all we've had. Most of our listeners are writers. But I mean, obviously, we're talking about writing. So I I would say probably okay good percentage of gonna go. I'm gonna go ninety nine percent truck. Drivers are really like there's some people who are like went. I need to be included. I don't write. But. Okay. Yes. So, but there's gonna be a different level of writing. So I wanted I wanted to go first memo were back just describing briefly as it's a personal narrative of either an event a circumstance or a situation short period of time that you move through. And you learn something, right? So that's memoir fiction, obviously is stuff yet mostly makeup. I think at this point we can only say you mostly make us there is yes, it is always truth and fiction and nonfiction for the purpose of what we're talking about. Today, meaning the factual stuff. So that might be the how To's the three steps to whatever kind of think fifty ways to clean your closet. You know that kind of stuff and creative nonfiction is something that's true. But it's presented in narrative way. So it might have all the fictional thing. Aspects of dialogue and setting and not sure thing so memoir against all of those on Russia's. We're gonna be talking about. Okay. So I'm gonna ask you a question. Okay. This is this is not planned. So this is off the cuff, right? I'm nervous ready because it's going to be a quiz later. Okay. So do you think that a memoir is a standalone, John, meaning it is its own little island sitting off their into sea of books, or do you think it has connection to fiction and straight nonfiction? Look at the wheels turn on a love asking questions because you're I started like flicker a little bit with all the things you're thinking, I love it. Because I'm comparing all the different types of memoirs that I have read and trying to determine which category the majority of them fall into are they their own genre. Or what was the second part or is? Or do you think there's a connection? Do you think that there's some talking is it just its own thing? Or do you think you see some aspects of of of meme law in fiction some aspects of memoir in nonfiction straight non-fiction. Let me say that to thanks to things I'm going to I'm gonna waffle here or prevaricate bec- words. So I believe that memoir is its own genre. However, some of the principles that are used in the other types of writing are included in Mon just like there's memoir included in fiction because in fiction, you're going to be telling the story of someone's life events, which happens wall. So I I would I think that so that was my prevarication did I pass a don't know skit. I mean, I think I think a lot of people have this image again, as as we cut debunked that that idea that there isn't truth and fiction fiction is all the stuff you make up. I think that I don't think anybody's going to argue with us when we talk about it. I think it's a gut reaction people say, no fiction and memoir have nothing in common or fiction, and I mean a memo straight nonfiction a how to book or what then but well, but but yet. Even the fact that you're saying well, well to me shows that inherently there's some ties we'll think about it in in house straight how to book how to how to get over grief. One two three steps of getting over grave yet or how to let's.
