Write For Your Life #2: Copywriting versus creative writing

April 11, 2010 at 8:00AM

Part one of this episode sees us talk about the terrible tussle faced by those writers who try to combine a copywriting career with literary ambition. Iain and Manuela Boyle agree, then disagree, and then Iain go through a little unintended writerly therapy. Everything turns out fine in the end. In part two (18:53) they talk about a couple of posts from other blogs. They reveal our worst writing distractions to follow up on 7 Writing Distractions I’m Kissing Goodbye, which featured on Fuel Your Writing (which I shamefully refer to as Fuel My Writing – sorry!) and was written by Suzannah from Write it Sideways. We then talk about whether writers should blog every day, following Bubblecow’s assertion that we definitely should.

Hosted by Donna Sørensen & Iain Broome.
