Episode 100: Reflecting on the best advice and insight from 100 episodes of the Creative Writer’s Toolbelt with writer editor and fellow podcaster Sarah Werner
Released20 May 2017
After just over three years the Creative Writer’s Toolbelt reaches 100 episodes! To mark the occasion I’m reflecting on some of the best advice and insight I’ve received over that time, and to do that I am joined by writer, editor, speaker and fellow podcaster Sarah Werner. In our conversation I ask Sarah some great questions(!) and we reflect on story structure, character, setting, genre, research and the writers life.
This episode is a conversation with Ottawa based speculative writers Marie Bilodeau and Derek Künsken. We explore how to live the writer’s life well, and what it means to follow the navy maxim that we need to be able to float, sail and shoot. We explore Marie’s experiences with retreats, and Derek’s experiences with sabbaticals, and we reflect on Derek’s best advice for writers: Don’t be a jerk!
