Convos With Creative People | Volume 2--Episode 4: Prepping for NaNoWriMo


Happy Friday the 13th to all who celebrate! Jolene Haley and I are back with a CWCP episode about prepping for National Novel Writing Month ( We talk about how you can use the rest of this month to get ready for the 50k-word challenge. Even though we focus on NaNo, you can apply most of what we talk about to any large creative project you might be preparing for.

For the horror fans out there, we also talk about the scary movies we’ve been watching, and give some recommendations for movies you can spend the rest of October enjoying.

Thanks for listening! Next month we’ll be back to our regular format and will have a guest joining us, so stay tuned!

TL;DR | Totally Killer is a Blast From the Past

You had me at “80s-inspired, time-traveling slasher.” I loved Kiernan Shipka in Sabrina, and it’s clear she’s got a long career in horror ahead of her if she wants it. Totally Killer has some great slasher moments, and while the jokes are sometimes a little too on the nose, the pace is brisk enough that there’s not a lot of time to dwell on what hits and what misses. Overall it’s a really fun time-traveling slasher story that pays homage to horror’s best era while being more entertaining than a lot of current horror flicks. Totally Killer succeeds in its mission, and has a blast doing it. I could see this making the yearly October watch list.
