Writing Excuses Podcast


Hero Breaker

I just stumbled upon this podcast. I'm on my second episode, and I find them entertaining/informative. They have an archive section for all of the back episodes.

Writing Excuses

C Hollis

I'm of the opinion you can't go wrong with Brandon Sanderson. He teaches the craft at BYU, I enjoy his books, he comes across as a good guy, and he's been quite successful.

There is a lot to learn from him, and his partners, at that website, but I also think there is much to learn from his books. If you read his works and keep in mind some of the guidelines (or rules, as some like to call them), you will find an accomplished author who bends them and forms them into a well-written story.

He's not afraid of -ly, or -ing, which is refreshing.

Writing Excuses is great - I listen to them a lot.

There's a couple of other great writing podcasts, but they're longer and hard to listen to on a regular basis if you don't commute.
