You were thinking it. All during November, while you were writing, you were thinking, “Am I going to publish this thing?” Admit it. This episode talks about the pros and cons of publication.
(Full disclosure: It really doesn’t. It goes off on a rant inspired by some of Dean Wesley Smith‘s advice. There are things I will never understand about the writer mindset, and I lay some of them on the table here.)
ONE CORRECTION: The quote from Anne Hogue-Boucher was in reference to doing NaNoWriMo… it was not about publishing. I apologize if I inadvertently misrepresented it.
Some books discussed in this episode:
