We got the show on the road! At least, for Adrienne.
She’s at a writers retreat and brought along her mike, a speaker for Eliza, and our guest Sophie Littlefield! Sophie has written in every genre imaginable and talks to us about the joys and difficulties multi-genre writing can bring.
Misfits: We may focus more on romance but we love to hear from writers across all genres! What genre do you write in? Do you write in more than one? What has been your experience? Drop us a comment!

Hello Misfits! This week, Eliza is heads down finishing her first draft on book 2. Next week, she’ll take us through getting that bad boy done!
But in anticipation of that episode, this week we thought we’d climb aboard the way back train and replay the first time we talked about drafting.
Stay tuned next week for a new episode to see how we compare our opinions and processes from a year ago.
Happy Writing Misfits!
