So... I've shown you the postcards, I've pimped the t-shirt... what NOW? Today is also the launch of " Writing Excuses," a weekly podcast featuring Brandon Sanderson, Daniel Wells, and Howard Tayler. Episode 1 is live today, and you'll hear from us each week thereafter. Our goals with "Writing Excuses" are threefold: we want to educate our listeners on subjects pertaining to writing, we want to entertain them, and we want to do it all in just fifteen minutes each week. Why so short? Why not a full 90-minute lecture? Because you're in a hurry, and we're not that smart.
