Episode 36: Hacking the Writer’s Mind

On this episode, Janine Ayana Watkins AKA Winner joins me to discuss her new book Sonder Lives: Here Lies Sonder Light. It’s a fascinating sci-fi novel about an amnesiac Marsean who is piecing together her memories about her mission when she came to Arth. In this episode, we talk about the writing process, inspiration, some hacks on how to write a novel, some of the creative satiric tools she uses to play with language to get the reader to think about things in a new way. We reflect on some of the concepts in the book in light of the Black Lives Matter movement. You can follow Janine Watkins on Instagram @ninja_9ine.

We also discuss the notion of astral projection as she was playing with telepathy as a communication aspect and I mentioned the Monroe Institute, an organization focused on helping people navigate astral realms. I was searching for the name Joseph McMoneagle a Monroe institute contributor, who Richard Thieme mentioned on Episode 7 of the CypherCon Podcast in regards to an interview he did with Joseph and his contribution in using remote viewing for military operations and UFO exploration. VideoCast of this Episode 36 can be found at https://youtu.be/yTtyJZzkF20
