Finally! A Guilt Free Way to Put Off Writing for Half-an-Hour!
This is the perfect companion podcast for anybody writing a first book — as I have been, on-and-off for….ever (though in my case what that first book IS keeps changing, so technically maybe I’m working on my 20th book).There are several things I love about the show. First, unlike so many podcasts, the conversation here does not sound staged and fake. Sure, the hosts get together with a pre-set agenda, and you WANT them to otherwise they’d just be wasting everybody’s time, but despite the agenda you really do feel that they are having a genuine intelligent conversation on that week’s topic and you just happen to get to listen-in.Second, Pam and Jeff keep talking about exactly what I’m thinking about, so there are definitely some “universal truths” for authors to be had here. For example, Jeff started talking about the tension between occasionally recognizing the need to change course on a project, versus the wisdom of not completely blowing-up the existing work and starting over every month — you have to find the balance. Who hasn’t struggled with THAT and wondered whether they were the only one?Third, it provides a very justifiable avenue for passive procrastination. Hey, you’re GOING to slack off and procrastinate anyway (I’m talking to myself here), so you might as well do it while taking in some inspiration and information about the very thing that you don’t have the energy to get to right now — writing your book. It’s guilt free!I also like the hosts — low key but not low energy.Keep up the good work Pam and Jeff.
