We start off talking about manscaping and other nonsense, but things really pick up when we get into a long talk about things that will drastically improve your writing in a short period of time. Some of the things we talk about are why metaphors are better than similes, how to structure your paragraphs for optimal pacing, and the importance of using active voice instead of passive voice.
In the cold open Caleb shares some quick news about a project. Then we discuss some of our personal pet peeves when dealing with book, anime, manga, and comic book snobs. After that, we get into the meat of the episode and have a long talk about what it takes to quit your day job to become a full-time writer. We don't pull any punches here and give you the harsh reality of what it'll take to make that dream a reality.
