This is a wonderful episode! We start off by discussing the problems with the introductions at the beginning of books. Then we get into a list of terrible writing advice and why we think the tips are so terrible. We also talk about certain Twitter writing drama, the Nobel Prize in Literature, and even briefly discuss the history of language in modern Japan and how it and their culture correlates to a specific writing style.
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.
