#ChatWithHannah Episode 4: NaNoWriMo Tips, Favorite Movies, and Overcoming Writer's Block

Whaaaa? A post on Wednesday? Unheard of! This has never happened in the history of the Hannah Heath blog (I think? Maybe? I don't keep track).

So what's going on? Well, for those of you who don't know, I launched a Youtube channel back in July. That's right. A writer attempting to be a Youtuber. Who thought that was a good idea?

Anyway, this Youtube channel has two aspects: #ChatWithHannah, the series where you can write in questions and have them answered every third Wednesday of the month. AND the brand new #ChatWithIndieAuthor series beginning on October 25th where you can ask indie authors about their writing.

So what does this mean for the blog? These videos are going to start being posted here as well as Youtube. So now you can be lazy and just watch my videos here, rather than having to travel waaaaay over to Youtube. You're welcome.

Now, without further ado: Episode 4 of #ChatWithHannah:
Today we talk about NaNoWriMo, favorite movies, newsletter marketing, how to overcome writer's block (assuming it's real...which I'm not convinced of), and more.

Also, when I said "Perihelid came out today" I meant it came out on October 17th, which is the day I recorded this video, not the day I published it (the 18th). *facepalm* My bad. You can still get a copy on Amazon, though, so we're all good.

Here is the blog post about writing sucky first drafts, in case you're interested.

  1. Hi, Hannah!
    Boy was I surprised when I got an email saying you'd posted something today! I had to glance at my calendar, thinking it was Friday =P.
    I've tried to do NanoWriMo before, but always end up taking way too long.
    Can't wait to see your new #ChatWithIndieAuthor video. As an indie author myself, I love to hear other people's stories.

    1. Haha! Sorry to throw you off, Elizabeth. =D I'm so glad you are looking forward to this new series! Thanks for the comment.

  2. Speaking of Cary Grant, have you seen I Was A Male War Bride? One of my favorite movies, it's adorable!

  3. I really enjoyed watching this! I especially appreciated your tips on writer's block. Those were really interesting, and different from anything I'd heard before on the subject.
    Surprisingly enough, I don't think there have been any movies that particularly influenced my writing. I love both movies and books, but the latter tend to influence my writing more. I tend to analyze books more than movies, for some reason, and with movies I just watch them (though I make comments the entire time on the storytelling, so... I don't know, actually).
    The Hobbit movies were so bad as adaptations! They're somewhat enjoyable in their own right, but it tends to be hard for me to separate movies from what they should be based on their book counterparts. I'm that bookworm who points out every discrepancy I can find. Eragon... Don't even get me started on that one, lol.
    I really enjoyed your video, and I look forward to the next one!

  4. Loved this vid, Hannah. I know how Lymes affects the body and how it hampers writing too- I've totally been there :( it's really courageous that you keep writing despite the pain! But also can't help but agree that the Hobbit *movie* series was terrible but personally Fellowship is my favorite in the LOTR movie line up. ROTK was exceptionally good but I dunno I just have a deeper connection to the first movie somehow. Anyway, love the new #ChatwithHannah series, keep it up!
