Week two is over. You might be asking yourself if it’s worth it. Is it worth it?

Hey! Dan Wells and his brother Rob are here to tell you why this is worth it.

And then, in the spirit of distracting you, they tell you about their pop-culture podcast, Do I Dare To Eat a Peach?

    Great advice! doing Nanowrimo for the first time this year i can easily say that the second rule of thumb is shut your inner editor down. I used to edit as i was writing and usually i could write 200 to 300 word on my lunch break but now i can pop from 600 to 850 words. i mean it’s crazy i never wrote that much in my entire writing life. I passed the 26k last night and i’m doing good. 14 days so far and it never stop, i’m on a roll baby!

    And for those who would like to print this out and pin it to your workspace so that you can contemplate it…

    A transcript! Yes, words! Just for your perusal and edification.

    An additional motivational story, if you start feeling down. Stephen King’s first published novel, Carrie, was only finished because his wife fished the first 3 pages of it (or rather, the short story version) out of the garbage and made him finish it. Successful writers get discouraged about their stuff, too.

    Odd. This episode does not show in the iTunes store for me. Is there a way I can fetch it to my iTunes Podcast directory by hand? I’m sorry to ask, but I can’t seem to figure it out myself.
