Merianna is out for the week, so Elisabeth is joined by Sam Harrelson on this week’s episode. In 45 minutes, they discuss the notion of how reading and writing are counter-cultural acts in a time of persistent Candy Crush and Facebook notifications, and why you should make a conscious act to stick to both. Elisabeth goes into detail about her own daily writing schedule, as well the need to write even if you know that no one will ever read your words (and why you shouldn’t brush your teeth first thing in the morning.) Sam shares his emotional ordeal of going through NaNoWriMo with a writer wife.
And do you ever hear character stories in your head that come out of nowhere? You’re not alone!
