Great information, okay presentation

Great advice from a prolific writer on creativity. Lessons are well crafted and to the point. I have to agree with one other reviewer, however. Dr. Eric Maisel is clearly a better writer than teacher, and his speaking can be a bit lifeless. But to me it's a small price to pay, as there's some great information here.

Recording quality is great, as are all the podcasts availabe from PersonalLifeMedia. Check out their other podcasts; they have some great ones.

Can't listen ,

The voice

I can't get past his voice. It makes the podcast hard to listen to.
I tried a few times.

Portrait of the Artist...by numbers

All right, a few of these episodes ("Doubting Process"; "Your new impeccability") have their useful moments, but they are way outswamped by what is ultimately a smug, back-patting, banal portrayal of "the writing life." You know, "You and I, we're not like others, we're writers, we're special--we drink pomegranate white tea, we fetishize the 'quirky' and the 'funky,' we need 92% more meaning than your average mortal, we love Paris, we fret about the relative merits of Freudian versus Jungian therapy, we like our smut with a soupcon of metaphor" etc. etc. etc. It's an odd mix of in-group flattery and stereotype mongering. Though the tone is generally encouraging, it's undercut by the occasional "What you do is not writing--_War and Peace_, now THAT's writing!" If you're at all like me (and I hope for your sake you're not), you'll come away from this podcast with a cheapened sense of vocation, due as much to Maisel's clunking sentences as his implicit framing of the novel-in-progress as an inevitable quirky, funky, tea-serving way station on the road to poseurville. Avoid.
