Podcast: Why Don’t People Write?

No two ways to slice this bread: writing is hard for many reasons. People may have trouble put words to paper (or screen) because they feel they have a weak grasp on language skills, or they’re nervous about revealing themselves. After all, writing in a private endeavor in the public spotlight. Criticism could be a good reason not to write, even though criticism can be both positive or negative. Some people have trouble simply finding the time to write, and other may worry about originality.

CC and I discuss these reasons and more in this week’s podcast. We get it. We really do because the struggle is real. But we also give potential writers some reasons to sit down and pound away on the keyboard. Have a listen.

Also this week, I talk about where I get my ideas for books while mentioning some authors you may have heard of:

J. K. Rowling
John Steinbeck
J. R. R. Tolkien
Stephen King
Suzanne Collins
Neil Gaiman

Plug in your headset and have a listen.

As always, let us know what you think. Thanks for listening!

  1. Great episode, and also I like Cassidy’s point about seeing who your critic is before deciding if you want to take said criticism. Just like life, really. You don’t want to take advice from someone you don’t want to be. Anyway, thanks for the podcast!
