So one of the many podcasts I listen to these days a great writing centered one called Writing Excuses (Fifteen minutes long. Cause you're in a hurry, and we're not that smart!) I highly suggest for any would-be writers as it details a lot of good writing advice and even tops off every episode with a homework writing assignment.
The show is hosted by professional writers from different walks of life, mostly novelists. Currently they have, amongst three groups, Maurice Broaddus, Amal El-Mohtar, Valynne E. Maetani, Mary Robinette Kowal, Brandon Sanderson, Howard Tayler, and Dan Wells.
Each week they visit intriguing topics like how to structure a novel, points of view, reinventing yourself through new genres, and tons more. They're currently on their 13th season, so there's LOTS to binge on your way to work or while you're doing housework.
I bring this up because of lot of the best writing advice I've been picking up lately has come from this podcast. It's full of great stuff for both rookies and and seasoned pros. They have people who's expertise runs the gamut, from novelists to screenwriters, with some guests even referencing anime, manga, and video games! Currently, my favorite was a writer who authored several erotic Choose Your Own Adventure novels. The panel of hosts couldn't believe such a thing existed and she spent a good several minutes elaborating on it before someone had to steer the conversation back.
So if you swing by my blog looking for writing advice, I highly recommend you steer your podcatcher of choice toward Writing Excuses. You're out of excuses, now go write.
Be Excellent To Each Other.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
