Ditch Diggers #7: Conventions // Brianna Wu Interview

I was sick when we recorded this. We talk conventions, why to go, why to not go, and your questions. Also, an interview with Brianna Wu from Giant Spacekat that I got at Boskone this year! We talk about her game Revolution 60 and then geek out hardcore about games.

(This was recorded before the Hugo announcement over Easter.)

ISBW #345: The pride of busy-ness // Interview with Dora Goss

ISBW #328 – Taking Care of Yourself // Gail Carriger interview

This week we welcome Gail Carriger back to the show, and talk about taking care of yourself. Hint- it’s not romantic to treat yourself like crap in order to brag that you’re not sleeping or drinking too much in order to feel like a “real” writer.

I talk about my skepticism for productivity sites, and then have a LONG talk with my agent, Jen Udden, asking lots and lots of questions. There was wine. And a bit of swearing.
