Where authors talk about things that never happened to people who don't exist.

I'm author Mindy McGinnis. In 2010 I signed with a literary agent after having spent ten years in the query trenches. Many of the mistakes I made were easily avoided, and I probably could have been published much more quickly if I'd done the necessary research. After learning the ropes through a large and scattered network of writer sites, blogs, and forums, I had finally found a measure of success.

I started the blog Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire shortly after landing my first book deal. I decided to pay it forward by hosting a blog where I asked published and agented authors all the questions I'd had when I was still aspiring. 

The blog has been regularly updated for six years now, taking a lot of my time and attention, with no monetary return. Often I have thought it was time for me to hang it up, but whenever the thought crossed my mind I would get an email from a follower who let me know how the blog had helped them on their publishing journey.

In 2017 I decided that if the blog was going to keep existing it also needed to grow and offer my followers something new. The Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire podcast came from that idea. I am excited to bring this new venue to my followers, but it has also demanded an enormous amount of my time as I set up interviews, record, edit, and go through post-production with each episode. I'm a perfectionist, so I'm editing out filler words, dead air, and anytime that myself or my guest bumble about a bit.

If the blog or podcast have been of any assistance to you in your writing life, I would very much appreciate monetary support so that I can continue to produce them.

Want to support me but don't like the idea of a monthly charge? I understand. You can support me by buying me a coffee in exchange for my content through Ko-Fi or giving a one time donation to me through the PayPal button below.
