WET029 – Write Better, Faster with Monica Leonelle

Monica Leonelle is a fiction writer, but I found her through her book Write Better, Faster: How To Triple Your Writing Speed and Write More Every Day. I talk to her here about some of the concepts in the book including tracking your writing, dictation vs writing at a keyboard, and her controversial views on editing. We also talk about napping, audio books and more.

WET027 – Technology has caught up

This episode is a little experimental in that I read a little and ad-lib a little, but I didn’t go back and edit, so you get the raw recording, with all the ums and uhs and asides. Tell me if you like it or not. 

I talk about the play I was in this Spring as well as some thoughts about how technology has finally caught up to us creative types and now allows us to do many things we had always wanted to do but didn’t have the means.
