A Great Source

Plain and simple just a great source for inspiration. I always feel energized to write. They condense tons of information in an education and informative way. Love it!

Used To Be Great

Seriously, the first seven or eight, maybe ten seasons of Writing Excuses are fantastic. Great guests, great discussions about technical topics, and a clinic of how to improve as a writer.

Then something started to go off the rails. Some of the episodes are still worth while, but too many of them now wander off into political discussions or social issues. The guest list has become increasingly stale as well, with all the authors sharing the same blandly liberal views on most things.

Woke Social Justice

Guys, we get it, you’re liberals, do you have to spend every episode talking about offending various identities and oppression? Go back to talking about SciFi and writing. Relax, Hillary lost, the world goes on.
