    #39: How To Write (by Other Writers)

    #39: How To Write (by Other Writers)

    Marc happened upon this lovely clip of writers talking to Women's Hour about their writing tips and advice. Writers such as Prue Leith, Angie Thomas, Ruby Wax, Allison Pearson and Nina Stibbe talk about how to write and how they write, and how to write that book! Jenni and Marc pull out their highlights, what resonated with them, and also how Prue Leith manages to get her laptop into the toilets at cocktail parties (what if she needs a plug? Does she carry a rucksack? Does everyone else think she's just doing a massive poo? SO MANY QUESTIONS!).

Procrastination at its best.....

Thoroughly enjoyable pod cast. Two good friends, good conversation and alcohol. What could go wrong!

I love this podcast. It is true friendship around a real passion for writing. Really easy to listen to, laugh, and furiously nod in agreement to. You are not ‘presented to’, you are invited along for a drink and a natter. The feature interviews have been interesting - especially the interview about the Listening Project. I’m really looking forward to where it goes... and where the novel goes!
