The Nitty Gritty Writing Podcast: Being Patient When Progress is Slow

This week, Dave and Simon talk about the frustrations writers can have with how long it takes to write books. This can be both the fact that a current book is taking a long time to complete, and the greater fact that a writing career is a series of slow steps.

Unfortunately, anything artistic worth doing tends to take a long time. The image of an author writing a book in a single day is great for movies and tv shows, but rarely happens in real life. And boy are we jealous of those that can manage it. Check out the audio and video for Dave and Simon’s thoughts.


Get Into The Action

For a limited time, I'm giving away the first two books in the Bytarend Fantasy series and the Hard Vacuum science fiction series for free.

Bytarend is fast, fun fantasy that'll have you on the edge of your seat. Hard Vacuum is hard-talking, violent science fiction and my tribute to 80s action movies.
