Hi, genuine writers! This is Innovative Editing’s Jeannette DiLouie welcoming you to episode #30 of The Genuine Writer Podcast. We keep things short, sweet and to the point here so that you can learn what you need to learn and get back to writing already.
Today’s episode – which discusses how creative writing enhances your intelligence – is sponsored by The Adulteress, a story about religion, ego, abuse, control, and what it’s truly like to let all that just go already. Follow the paths of Keziah, a young Jewish woman with an angry husband; and Demetrius, a Roman soldier with nothing solid to believe in. Together, they’ll hit rock bottom before they’re ready to recognize the intensely worthwhile reality right in front of their eyes.
If you’d like to read The Adulteress in print or on Kindle, I’ll make sure to include the Amazon link for you to click on in the description section.

This series is hardly going to be able to cover every single way that creative writing can help you achieve what you want to achieve, not just on paper but off it as well. But we’re trying to hit as many high notes as possible. I’d say that reason #8, which we’re covering today, is a big one. But that implies that the past seven weren’t, which wouldn’t be accurate at all.
So instead of trying to think of ways to describe this one, let’s just get to it.
If you’ll recall, our last podcast episode focused on how creative writing can help us become better problem-solvers in the real world as well as in the fictional worlds we build. By walking our characters through the physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological, political, personal, familial, cultural, societal – or whatever – issues that we do, we explore ways we can do so ourselves.
And if we’re becoming better problem solvers ourselves, it only makes sense that we’re becoming more intelligent in the process? Right?
