  1. Writing Excuses 6.17: Writing Assistants » Writing Excuses

    Peter Ahlstrom, assistant to Brandon Sanderson, and Valerie Dowbenko, assistant to Pat Rothfuss, join Brandon and Dan to talk about what they do for “their authors.”

    While this may seem like an incredible luxury — most of you listeners aren’t going to rush out and hire an assistant — there are things that can be farmed out from the earliest stages of your career as a professional writer. The goal, of course, is for the writer to find more time to write.

    It’s also a lot of fun to hear Peter and Valerie talk about how they keep Brandon and Pat writing, and to listen to them talk about some of the unusual things they do as part of this job.

    Writing Prompt: First person once removed — give us a story from the perspective of a first person narrator who is NOT the cool person.

    The Shoes, Pat Has All of Them: Because that’s what Valerie did for him.

  5. Episode 20: Self Doubt with Merlin Mann — The Nudge

    How can we be sure that we’re on the right track? Doubt is the rust that eats away at our ability, as designers, to be confident that what we’re producing is good and worthwhile.

    In this episode Ross and Josh speak to professional speaking human Merlin Mann about overcoming or, perhaps, embracing self-doubt, to become better producers of quality work. Are we allowed to change our minds and how do we deal with the criticism that results from that?
