It’s been a while, but R. B. Wood has a new episode of the Word Count Podcast up, and it just so happens to have a story of mine.
Apologies in advance. I was sick when I recorded it, so my voice may not sound quite right.
I’ve missed writing different things. Drafting a novel is a consuming process that makes it easy to forget what it feels like to work on different projects.
And writing for podcast is a bit different. I don’t have to be as precise with the language, or worry that sarcasm won’t translate. It’s freeing that way. When I write for this podcast, I try to write what feels natural for me to say. It’s the actor in me.
Anyway, the point of all this is that you should go listen to the episode. My story starts around 6:30.
