The Power of Words: Audio Q&A

The Power of Words, an Audio Q&A

I love podcasts, round table discussions, and audio books! I listen while I cook, garden, and walk. I listen while I do laundry, clean, and get the stuff done that has to get done. Somehow, when my brain is happy and learning, I’m happy, too.

My current favorite podcasts include:


After listening for several  years to audio interviews, you can imagine my excitement when this happened:

Linda Meyers asked me to join her round-table discussion at the National Association of Memoir Writers! 

She emailed me a list of questions for our Q&A and I got to work on them.

  • Why did you begin to write?
  • How did you begin?
  • How do you manage your time?
  • Can you speak to the business side of writing?
  • What are the best things a writer can do to improve writing skills?
  • Talk about the fear of writing.
  • What does your writing to for you and for others?
  • What are you currently working on?


It was exciting, intimidating, and thrilling to get ready. Once I was on the phone with Linda it was smooth sailing. Linda was prepared, easy to talk to, and a lot of fun.

If you want to take a listen I’ll just say this: the first two or three minutes are setting up and saying hello – feel free to SKIP them!

So, here it is. My NAMW Round-table Discussion.

The Power of Words: 20 Years of Writing with Jill Kandel

Also, check out the other (free) round-table discussions hosted by Linda at NAMW. If you’re interested in writing and in writing better these discussions are a great place to start.

Thanks, Linda! It was an honor!
