I Should Be Writing

"I should be writing" is what people say, but they rarely do it. This podcast is designed to help you get past those blocks, whether it's what your teacher told you when you were a kid, to being totally sure you'll never be as good as (FAV AUTHOR) so you might as well quit.



episode 17: Agents and Author Expectations

S19 Ep16
Recorded live, March 16, 2023
