The Writers' Hangout

A weekly podcast by two authors who discuss writing, screenwriting, film, and life.

Episode 4: Creativity and Balancing the Writing Life.

In Episode 4 of The Writers Hangout, John discusses the ways he juggles writing, a fulltime job, and family. Randall talks about his first sensory deprivation float, and the ways he gets into the proper frame of mind for writing. Other topics include the popular misconception of alcohol’s relationship to creativity, and the unbearable sadness of swiss cheese.

Enjoy the show and please leave us a comment. Let us know how we’re doing and if there is a topic you would like us to discuss.

Randall’s project Two Wheels, No Map. Check out the video Randall and John created to promo the project. Two Wheels No Map

Here’s the link to Randall’s sensory deprivation experiment (float tank). www.randallsilvis.com

    Great show! Next time I have some rum, I’m going to check out some Swiss cheese and find out if it makes me sad, too! Float tank, huh? I’m going to look into that, too. Maybe people should do that these days just to unplug from everyday life for a little while and “detox” ourselves from the digital noise we experience all day long!

      Jen, thanks for comment. I love the idea “detox ourselves from the digital noise.” That is exactly what we need to do.

      John

    • Jen,
      Thanks for your comment. I suggest you go for the aged swiss cheese; it’s so much sadder than the young stuff.
      My best,
      Randall
