How Do You Eat An Elephant?

I was a guest earlier this year on a very interesting new podcast called Creative How. As the name suggests, it's all about exactly "how" creative people go about doing what they do. My particular episode is about novel writing, obviously, because that's really the only thing I know how to do.

Over the years, I've been asked about writing in a very general sense. I've talked about things like which writers I like, what inspires me, and where certain ideas have come from. This hour-long chat is much more specific than that. The hosts, Jed and Sean, got me to talk very practically about the steps you need to take to actually write a book. We discussed outlining, writing schedules, rejection, grad school, money, getting an agent, the publishing business, my stance on drinking while writing, and my forthcoming new novel, Last Couple Standing

If you're interested, check it out on iTunes now. My episode is S1:E1. And give the other episodes a look, too. Artists, producers, puppeteers, and more. It's a really cool list.

  2. Honestly...I have no idea. I was just a guest on the podcast, so I don't know the ins and outs. Good luck.
