Me, us, we

A little full of themselves for my taste, with little relevant content for anyone trying to learn or garner useful information. The episode I listened to (July) was time wasted, especially when there are so many other Podcast choices offering valuable information. This episode should have been called “me, us, we.” Maybe for others, not my cup of tea...unsubscribed.

Lively, honest, and thought-provoking discussions

I love listening in on J. Thorn and Rachael Herron's weekly gab session. They catch up on their full-time writer's lives. One of them surprises the other with a question that they both discuss so honestly and then pose the question to us. Check it out!

So much fun!

This is a really wonderful show - I love the feeling of getting to eavesdrop on two writers discussing questions about how they write and what works for them. The enthusiasm they each have for the subject is palpable. Love it! A nice boost to my week with thoughtful ideas to consider.
