Person. from a 15 year self-imposed exile, and the birth of thepublicblogger, 6 months before The Neighborhood would even exist.

Neighbors, readers, innovators and friends are invited to take part in show/posts discussions, meet featured artists,share blogger innovations, and to explore how writing is transformed into performance art.
In the maiden podcast - The Art of Performance Writing and a Candid Discussion - You are cordially invited to call or message in questions & comments about specific shows, writing in general and even the writer himself. But most importantly, we can continue our civil discussion to find answers. With special guest, tba
When Thepublicblogger Talks.... the imagination listens and learning from one another rules. .
Robert J. Moore Jr. was born in Elyria, Ohio on November 13th 1979. Despite his birthplace, Robert grew up in the neighboring city of Lorain, Ohio, the same birthplace of world famous authors Toni Morrison and Helen Steiner Rice. Robert had the benefit of growing up in a multicultural city.
There were times during his young childhood when Robert had to deal with adverse conditions. At times his family was homeless or did not have functioning utilities. As a way of entertainment, Robert would read anything he could get his hands on. His mother had a collection of romance novels that he would read. Reading quickly built up his vocabulary at a young age as he continued to read above his grade level. Eventually he would begin to write stories of his own. He would write poetry for his friend to sell as well as short stories about some of the things that he had seen at a young age. At the latter stages of elementary school, he was a regular in the Young Authors writing program.
During Junior High School, his English teacher placed him on the school’s Power of the Pen writing team in which he was a state finalist for two years. These experiences inspired him to write a manuscript in high school.
During his first year of college, Robert wrote an abstract that was selected to participate in the American Association for the Advancement of Science competition in 2001.
In 2008, Robert along with four partners founded MooreWriting Publishing and published his first novel, “Till Death Do Us Part”. Following the success of his first novel Robert published a book of short stories, “Listen to My Kaleidoscope.”
Robert currently resides in his hometown and continues to write. He is also the vice president of the International Writers Association and hosts a weekly podcast, “The International Writers Association Podcast”.
The voices in our head have gone silent. What do we do to bring our muse back? In this episode, the Write Pack explores breaking writer’s block. Some say it doesn’t exist. Others say it does. There are thousands (or more) books and articles on how to break it. How do the members of the Write Pack break writer’s block?
What are the things that cause writers block? Stress? Fear of Failure?
Some techniques we talk about: Throwing darts, writing in the buff, writing in the tub, free form writing, talking to yourself on the computer, free typing (or “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy), dropping inhibitions, writing at the crack of dawn, using different medias, writing in different locations, writing a draw novel, practice another art, get away from what you are used to, writing in colors, using lists, writing prompts, using dice, using pictures for inspiration, writing in a different language, write something purposefully terrible, using music, use meditation, using radio dramas, watching TV or movies, using headlines, , use take two different ideas and combine them, using fandom, give yourself a deadline, rewarding yourself, and more….
One of the most important questions for writers can also help break writers block: “What if?”
Questions about a specific show or post? Plot twist needs further discussion or source of inspiration? Or questions about The Neighborhood platform itself? Collaborations or selection and use of artists' songs and visual art? Q&A is the show for you.
A topic, a photograph, a song, something on your mind or you would just like to select the next The Neighborhood Show. Your thoughts and requests and welcome and at least one will be on deck for the next post.
And while Season 3 is still going strong, a brief discussion about Season 4..... Wow.... tune in for more.

Tune in to Writestream Tuesday on August 26 at 1 p.m. Eastern when host Dariaanne welcomes Ordinance 93 author Lilia Fabry to discuss her timely and haunting debut novel:
With the blessing of the 55th President of the United States, the newly formed Office of Familial Equality promises to end all the nation’s problems including poverty and illness with the Family Protection Act. The only catch is all pregnancies must be registered and approved. All eyes turn to the first person to break the law, Justin Winters, an electrician suddenly turned subject of national attention. Joining him in the escape are the women known only as Spring, Summer, and Fall as they work together to run from the bureaucracy and national spotlight that pursues them. Once the secretary of the OFE learns Winters has tested positive for causing multiple unregistered pregnancies, he comes after him full force, as the future of the Act rests upon if and how Winters and the women are brought in. Their successful defiance would lead to more defectors, their capture providing an opportunity to make an example of them all. With little more than the clothes on their backs, the four set off on a quest for freedom and to keep the identity of the mother a secret. Most of all, they are running from an ordinance in the law which threatens what they hold most dear.
At 2:05 p.m., the Right Wing Riot takes over with their unique brand of "public service satire." Join us!
Bill welcomes New York Times bestselling author Eileen Goudge to the show. Join bill and Eileen as they discuss Bones and Roses first in her new Cypress Bay mystery series. As always, our conversation will focus on the link between creativity and our everyday lives, how what it takes to write the book you most want to write, is also what it takes to lead the life you most want to lead. Don't miss it.
