Episode 6: A mini-episode with kittens, and a writing prompt

Today, we bring you our first mini-episode! We’ll bring you these update/writing exercise mini-eps every other week. Let us know what you think!

You can listen to it in your browser, or you can also subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, or wherever get your podcasts. Theme music is “It’s Time” by Scaricá Ricascá.

This week, we catch up on what we did this week, and share clips from the off-podcast voice memos we send each other most days. We’ve been doing this since midsummer, and find it’s a great way to keep our writing partnership close and maintain momentum. Plus, it’s fun. We cover all the fun stuff — yoga, plotting, cheating yourself, cats, bad moods, day job pressures, and creating anxiety.
