The worried writer 

The worried writer 

Hi everyone,

I’ve been a little slack in posting lately! I have been procrastinating with my writing lately and reading lots instead. 

I stumbled across some books by an author ‘Sarah Painter’ and enjoyed them immensely. I then found out that she has a podcast titled ‘The worried writer.’

I wanted to share this with you all as I listened to all of the episodes pretty quickly and have found it to be very inspiring. Especially at this time with my writing.

Lately I’ve been procrastinating with editing my manuscript. I do think all writers have these times when we are not as productive as we would like to be! 

The podcast is one all writers will enjoy as we all are worried writers at times! 

Check it out!

So you want to be a writer?

Today I decided I’d share with you my favourite podcast show for writer’s.

“So you want to be a writer” hosted by Valerie Khoo & Allison Tait.

so you want to be a writer


These ladies are from the Australian Writers’ Centre and host a great show. It airs weekly and covers all different types of writing tips and information. It covers blogging, novel writing and freelance writing. They also have great publishing tips from authors, publishers and editors.

I also love how they have the show notes on their website (link shared above).

My favourite segment is how they do an interview every week with a different author, the segment is titled ‘writer in residence.’ This part of the show is where they interview authors and get three top writing tips. I have found some of these interviews to be very insightful in the writing world.

I have discovered lots of sites, authors, publishers and even apps for my phone to help with my writing.

It was actually this podcast that pushed me to begin using social media as a platform for my writing. I first joined twitter and have built up lots of tips and learned a lot from this show over the past year. I have now decided to start this blog which is partly inspired by these two ladies.

I highly recommend that you check it out and I bet you will be so impressed that you will backlog the past shows (75 so far).

Link to iTunes with a list of all the episodes:

My favourite episode is hard as I have so many favourite. But if I could pick one it is would be the interview with one of my very favourite author’s Liane Moriarty.

Ep 25: Write for your goals, become a productive freelance writer, agents behaving badly and New York bestselling author Liane Moriarty.
