BIG shout-out to podcast for naming Writing Excuses as the Read of the Week! Operation: Endgame and The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences
This morning, as the
Dog Days of Podcasting nears its conclusion, Tee returns to his evening with Neil Gaiman at Wolf Trap. There was a pretty valuable takeaway Tee got from that two-and-a-half hours: it’s more than okay to enjoy your own work. Sure, there is a line of self-indulgence to be aware of. The trick is knowing where that line lies.

In our previous episode of Pip, Tee, Matt, and PJ all looked ahead to a week at the Smoky Writers’ Retreat. Now we jump ahead to the end of the week, and this time we are joined by KT Bryski.
