In this wide-ranging and fun interview, author/blogger Joanna Penn is interviewed by Gentretainment podcasters Marx Pyle and Julie Seaton on research, ideas, genre, process, and tips for a creative writing career. The interview discusses how they got into writing, and the challenges you encounter when first starting out.
She also gives details of her writing life and shares how she gets ideas, researches books, and tips on self-publishing and book marketing. Like many writers, Joanna illustrates how she immediately started a full time job after college to pay back debts, and didn’t start writing until later. Ironically, her first book was called “Career Change” and she’s been writing ever since!
She also said that she had started a blog, “as you do”, and then discovered NaNoWriMo.org – where the aim is to write 50,000 words in a month. She only managed 20,000 words, but it got her going! Check out what else she had to say!
