On this podcast Ryan and I debate whether or not a writer needs to be mindful of their audience. What is it that makes readers read? How do you find new readership and keep them interested in what you have to write? We also discuss the upcoming science fiction/fantasy convention line-up and which conventions we are excited to attend this year.

One thought on “New Podcast Up: Your Reader’s “So What” Moment”
I agree with knowing who you are writing for, as a goal to reach for.I think someone told me that the first year I started writing a novel, in ’13.
One thing that I appreciate is that you talk about the issues with kids who don’t take literature from high school seriously without completely panning these great books in lieu of a Cliff notes style of teaching that I keep reading about.
Also my son and I are going through the old testament. Isaiah was a mouthful as you say, but coming back to context, by reading it after we’d read the books that came before it, we gained so much from it.
