S9E13: Groove Me | Terry McMillan and Jonathan Plummer & Anna Faris and Chris Pratt

Trashy Divorces

Welcome to our Season 9 finale! Alicia has the very trashy tale of what happened after Stella got her groove back! Author Terry McMillan broke all the rules by marrying a much younger man, and when he later came out as gay, her anger was almost all-consuming. Stacie has a couple who really underperformed in the trash department, but the sweet aftermath of the divorce of actress Anna Faris and Guardian of the Galaxy Chris Pratt seemed like a nice note to end the season on.We’ll be back to kick off Season 10 on April 11, and if you’re missing us in the meantime, come join us on Patreon.

Terry McMillan–I Love My Characters

Toure Show

Terry McMillan is one the most famous and successful writers of her time because she knows how to really connect with her audience. And the reason why she understands how to do that is because she knows how to make great characters and she knows how to listen to them. She doesn’t tell her characters what to do, she lets them tell her what she wants them to do and who they are and by really listening, she creates really honest characters who people love. This is a master class in how to write compelling fiction—after this convo I will never look at characters the same ever again. This is a must for anyone who aspires to be a successful writer. And check out Terry’s new novel It’s Not All Downhill From Here.

Terry McMillan & Laura Munson: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Novelists

Beautiful Writers Podcast

These New York Times bestselling authors on tour meet here for the first time. Laura Munson is promoting her first novel, Willa's Grove, while Terry McMillan is about to share with the world her tenth or eleventh novel, It's Not All Downhill from Here. (She doesn’t keep count—“They’re not like children, you know.") Both women have decades of butt-in-chair know-how with which to enlighten us and make us laugh. When I say enlighten, boy, do I mean it. Does anyone else need to learn how to put healthy boundaries around their writing practice—like, for instance, to keep family and pets at a respectful distance during storyline crunch times? Terry doesn't mess around, which is probably why long-term publishing success seems to come so easily to her, both on the page and in the hit movie adaptions of her books. (#StellaGotHerGrooveBack #WaitingToExhale …) You might want to take notes. I did. Terry and Laura also share other similarities. Both novels find their lead characters in a midlife shake-up. As they ask themselves the BIG questions, thankfully, their posse of wise (and wisecracking) girlfriends is ever-present. Listen up for behind-the-scenes details on daily practices. Dealing with distractions (omg). Mental toughness. Commitment. And, writing retreats. (Yes, Laura hosts popular retreats in Montana, and Terry's been to mine in Carmel. We chat about the importance of getting away. But. I also share my best DIY tips for creating your own writing retreats for free—tried-and-true strategies for any writer, anywhere, that have helped a lot of people get 'er done.)Get ready to fall in love with these two if you haven't already. And, if you've got kids nearby, please God, get out the ear muffs! Terry just might drop an F-bomb or two (and, who am I kidding--it's not like I can be trusted in that arena).Whoops! Keepin' it fun, y'all. That's why I do this. 'Cause it's fun!Write on. xowww.beautifulwriterspodcast.com
