Kobo Writing Life Podcast – Episode 096 – Pep Talks from NaNoWriMo’s Grant Faulkner

It’s day 8 of National Novel Writing Month, which is perfect timing to listen to some excellent inspiration from Grant Faulkner, Executive Director of NaNoWriMo. He just published a nonfiction book, Pep Talks for Writers: 52 Insights and Actions to Boost Your Creative Mojo. Christine Munroe spoke with him about how to stay committed to daily creativity.

Grant wrote the book because he wanted to “develop something to help people maintain a creative mindset, not just for the short term, but to really sustain it year-round.” In the episode we talk about several key tips for keeping up the bootcamp attitude during NaNoWriMo and throughout the year.
