with Matt Wallace
Mur and Matt come to you from Morgan Freeman’s Franklin Mint Collector’s Plates room.
We talk organizing and distractions. It’s unorganized and distracted, just so you know.
Mur and Matt discuss Morgan Freeman’s obsession with Franklin Mint Collector’s Plates featuring older, fatter Elvis.
Mur restates the premise of the podcast, old school, as if it were an early episode.
Matt and Mur talk about their current editing schedules.
Mur attempts to use the above to smoothly segue into the show’s topic, but Matt derails the conversation after an off-hand comment about his hair.
Matt and Mur finally reach the topic of the episode, organization for professional writers.
Mur talks about prioritizing.
Matt talks about being your own assistant.
Social media as a distraction and a tool, and the appropriate amount of time to spend on it to prevent the former and enable the latter.
Apps that help you focus on writing, including real ones like Forest and ones that don’t exist like Matt’s hostage bunny app.
Simple alternatives to app solutions, like shutting off your WiFi, and Post-it notes.
Matt and Mur debut a new segment, the Writer’s Torment Corner, and talk about World Fantasy Con’s woeful lack of harassment/accessibility policies.
Email and Twitter questions.
Matt and Mur remind everyone Ditch Diggers is an awards eligible podcast and it is podcast season.
