The Writer Files is one of my favourite podcasts for writers. I love that rather than focusing on how writers market their books and find readers, host Kelton Reid asks about writing habits and productivity and creativity. Previous episodes include interviews with mortician Caitlin Doughty (author of Smoke Gets In Your Eyes), fantasy author Catherynne M Valente, and science fiction novelist Andy Weir.
We had a lot of fun talking about rejection, perseverance, my obsession with heavy metal, ancient languages, and checklists, eating ribs with Nick Cave, and a funny story about my Kindle.
I hope you enjoy it, and don’t hesitate to shoot me an email or comment on social media if you have any questions about anything we discuss.
