You Don’t Need Angst to Be a Good Writer E3

EPISODE THREE: You Don’t Need Angst to Be a Writer

In this episode, I talk about suffering and creativity, I review Brunonia Barry’s The Lace Reader and take some lessons about writing from it, and I talk about the best way to enhance your writing. (Hint, the best way to enhance your writing is NOT to be an intrinsically sad person.)



 


Grammar as Part of the Art Form E2

EPISODE TWO: Grammar as Part of the Art Form

In this episode, I discuss the trend of writers refusing to learn or use proper grammar or techniques because they are able to pay editors to fix the issues with their work.

I also include some learning points from a book review on Asimov’s Foundation, and I include a couple helpful quotes on creativity and writer focus.
