It’s a 1:43 minute commitment. Find the time, and do it.

If you need to be sold on the exercise, read this:

Maria Popova’s/BrainPicking’s transcription of the “most shimmering parts” of the podcast…

… which will make you find the time to listen to the podcast.

Then, supplement with

Write Like a Motherfucker

…and quickly order your copy of Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Life and Love by Dear Sugar.


About mjanecolette

Writer. Reader. Angster. Reformed Bohemian (not). Author of the erotic romance Tell Me, the erotic tragedy (with a happy ending) Consequences (of defensive adultery), and the rom-com (she's versatile) Cherry Pie Cure, as well as the non-fiction collection of essays Rough Draft Confessions: not a guide to writing and selling erotica and romance but full of inside inside anyway. Coming in 2018: Text Me, Cupid, a steamy romance in four episodes. Current WiPs: Queer Christmas in Cowtown, Jewel of the Not-So-Spectacular Boobs, All In the Cards, and Un-Valentine. Yes, working on four projects simultaneously is a spectacularly bad idea.
