 Episode 018: Does Being a Writer Make Reading Unbearable? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 58:32

Up-front apologies for the sound quality for the first 10 minutes of this episode. Though, don’t let this apology deter you from listening; Pablo’s lovely voice (and Caleb’s less lovely voice) still shine through. After the 10 minute mark, everything becomes crystal clear(er). Caleb J. Ross and Pablo D’Stair discuss a recent tweet sent from @calebjross that speaks to the problem of authors and their reading habits, particularly about how being a writer tends to lessen the enjoyment of reading. Of course, part of the enjoyment that writers get from reading comes from the dissective act of reading, but what about when we just want to enjoy a damn story? Is it possible for a writer to be a passive reader?

[blackbirdpie url=”http://twitter.com/calebjross/status/138063727013527552″] NaNoWriMo is a month-long event in which writers of all experience levels attempt to write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November.
