How We Feel

The endless saga of our flooded basement gives us fodder for this week’s podcast. Long story short: we’re sore.

We talk about how the natural process of aging and Life takes a physical toll on our quality of life, and how we as writers can use these experiences to shape our characters. We also discuss how we can learn more about conditions where we have no firsthand experience. Notable examples would be the use of scooters in supermarkets and childbirth.

We also touch on how the quality of our physical health can be directly related to our ecomomic status. We cite Alice Walker’s The Color Purple, Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes, and John Steinbeck.

Yeah, this podcast was not much of a picker-upper, but these are important discussions for creators who write about real life versus those writing for escapism.

Have a listen and let us know what you think. TIA LYL!
