Writing Excuses

Hurray for Writing Excuses!

Writing Excuses is a podcast where a passel of published pensmiths perorate profusely pertaining to prose.

I’m afraid I am letting my enthusiasm overwhelm me. Writing Excuses is a commendably succinct podcast with a regular cast of, yes, published pensmiths with occasional featured guests discuss a writing topic. For example, the seven point story structure, or how to write for roleplaying, or astronomy for writers (that one struck a deep chord with me…). Sometimes the subject is too large to fit easily into the fifteen minute format and they will break it across two episodes (for example when they were critiquing an outline) but this is very rare.

But the discussion is always to the point, and easily fits into an early Monday time slot with your first coffee of the day. There is an extensive archive of previous episodes which is certainly worth mining for inspiration.
