Diane had some vacation time last week and is finding it hard to get back into the groove. She talks to Hannah about the mindset of writers who feel like they need to write all the time, how to get back into it, and what you can do to put yourself in a writerly frame of mind even when putting words to paper isn’t in the cards.
Books and media and places mentioned:
- Citizenfour, a documentary about whistleblower and fugitive Edward Snowden. You can watch the trailer.
- Stephen King, On Writing: King’s classic work, a combination of autobiography and his approach to writing. Note bene: his approach to writing.
- The Cloud Gate, public art in Chicago
- Tour of Chicago’s architecture: if you’re in Chicago, make sure you take one of these tours. Fabulous.
