'I Should Be Writing' takes a little while to get started, but is a good look inside a writer's brain. The first part of this particular episode deals primarily with overcoming bad habits such as fear, lack of confidence and distraction, which can make writing difficult, and gives the listener tips on how to combat them. While I tend to only suffer from the bad habit of distraction, having heard similar frustrations expressed in many a writers' workshop, I imagine most hopeful writers would find this sort of information invaluable. The second part is an interview with author Gail Carriger and is a refreshing change from most author interviews. While there are a few predictable questions about character creation and motivations, more specific questions about the careful choice of character names, and writing professionally under a pseudonym are very helpful! The podcaster, Mur Lafferty, takes great care to make sure her interview remains intriguing, and it sounds very much as if the author enjoyed answering her questions. The final part consists of the podcaster responding to email questions sent to her about writing. and I have to admit that's where I lost interest. I realize this may be helpful for some, particularly those who have sent in such questions, but I'm afraid that format doesn't really appeal to me. Overall, however, I found the podcast to be very interesting and thought-provoking, and I feel it is a good resource for potential writers just getting their bearings.
