Earlier this year I met Tom Pepperdine who runs The Real Writing Process podcast. It's a wonderful podcast that features writers talking about, well, their process. Usually authors do interviews when they're plugging their newest book and the questions mostly revolve around that particular book, how it got started, what it's about, etc. What's great about Tom's podcast is that he asks questions that get to the heart of how a writer works, what they do or don't do, and what rules they follow or just can't (like me with the "write every day" rule: not gonna happen!). He asks questions that make you really consider what it is you DO when you sit down to work on a new project, from conception to drafting to editing to even publication. I got to sit down with him over some gin and we talked for an hour about everything and anything. You can find that specific episode here, but do take a look at the table of contents and listen to other interviews, some with established authors and some with newer ones. (And this podcast is available on a number of platforms; an internet search will show you your options!).
Mostly thoughts on writing and the creative life.
