Every week in the Writer's Routine, we'll have a look at the daily diary of a creative person to find out how they organise their time to use for maximum innovation and imagination.

Some are frantic night-owls, others roll out of bed into their desks, and a few lock themselves away for days in the woods - but none have a regular 9 to 5, and we'll try to find out how they've managed it.

I am amazed...

I am truly amazed... that a whole lot more folks have not taken the time to write a review, considering the amount of time Dan has put into these podcasts, which benefit us all!

Dan's podcast is one of six channels I regularly listen to, but as I came on board late, I am still in the midst of binge listening each morning on my drive to work.

Dan's intervirew style is just what I needed... plenty of pertinent questions, as well as obviously being well schooled in this field of endeavour.

Dan seems to hone in, and manages to dig out the pearls of wisdom that we are all agog to hear from each author.

Such a great channel, this guy simply rocks boys and girls!!!

Loving Writers Routine

Hi Dan,

Totally loving your podcast... have recommended it to all my friends and any lovers of literature I meet.... it’s inspiring me to get off my behind and stop thinking about my novel but actually do something about it! I joined Scrivener as you suggested - also loving this.

Great authors on your podcast... all super different but it’s opened my eyes to other novels I wouldn’t normally go for. Secretly I’m a bit obsessed with your accent! Also I’m enjoying your warmth and how you question your people.

Favourite podcasts so far... Garrard Connelly, Celia Ahern, Ian Rankin and Gabriel Tallent... very different authors... some funny, some intense but all very open and authentic. I really enjoy how you stick to the routine (!!) and start with where these writers write. Totally loving it. Hope to be a famous author one day and you can interview me!!!

All the best,

Clary Lindeman
