30 Days, 30 Podcasts

As if writing a novel in thirty days wasn’t hard enough, this year I set myself a challenge to create a writing podcast for each day of NaNoWriMo.

Future-v2

Well, it was touch-and-go a few times there, but I did it. Most of the episodes center around the writing process–how to find that perfect combination of music, location, and tools to get you into a state of flow.

Here are all thirty podcasts from the last thirty days. Enjoy!

Disaster Gays on Writing Excuses

I had a great time on the Writing Excuses Podcast–which was taped during the Writing Excuses retreat… on a cruise ship. If you’ve never sat on the deck of the ship overlooking the teal blue waters of Honduras while editing your novel, I highly recommend it.

If you haven’t checked out Space Unicorn Blues–it’s the story of a disabled disaster gay in space who has to enlist the help of a part-unicorn to deliver a cargo that might save humanity.

You can also preorder the sequel, Five Unicorn Flush, which follows our lovable foul-mouthed disaster gay as she saves yet another planet from destruction!
