Writing Excuses - A Podcast on Writing

"Fifteen minutes long, because you're in a hurry, and we're not that smart."  This is the catchphrase that opens each weekly episode of Writing ExcusesBrandon Sanderson, Dan Wells, and Howard Taylor team up to wax eloquent on how to write, how to get published, and how to survive.

I've been listening to these 15-minute podcasts, starting with the 2008 archives and working my way up to today.  The trio are fun to listen to and they give a lot of good advice.  The lessons are geared more toward sci-fi/fantasy/horror, but could easily apply to other genres.

If you're pursuing an aspiring writer's career, I strongly recommend listening to these guys.  You'll be glad you did.
