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 24: [ISBW] The Importance of Fanfic (RIV Blaseball)

S19 Ep24

It's June, and I have had some disappointments (She Podcasts, Live! and Blaseball), but at least I'm not worrying about travel so much. Got my 10k words turned into my agent, and lament the loss of the podcast community. But Tee Morris, Scott Sigler, and Christiana Ellis are all live streaming too. And so is Grant Baciocco!

...Whatever you're afraid of, you're not alone. And the thing is about those fears, if everybody has them, no matter how successful you are, does it really have to do with writing? 

What I'm Reading
I'm currently reading The Other Side of Infinity by Joan Smith, magical real world YA romance about seeing the future and wondering if you can make a difference.
