The Writers' Hangout

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

Episode 6: He said, she said.

In this episode, John and Randall play a revealing game of “He said, she said,” in which they dissect quotes about writing from the masters, and, in so doing, reveal their own writing philosophies. Quotes from Hemingway, Doctorow, Flannery O’Connor, Philip Roth, and several other writers lead John and Randall to various interpretations and make for a lively and entertaining discussion.

Show Note:

During the show, Randall mentioned a quote from 19th century Irish playwright and poet Richard Brinsley Sheridan who said, “Easy writing’s vile hard reading.” The full quote is “You write with ease, to show your breeding, but easy writing’s vile hard reading.” Randall gave an in correct attribution, so we thought we would mention it for any Sheridan fans.

  1. Another great podcast guys. It was your longest so far , and I couldn’t be happier. I think my favorite quote is Philip Roth’s one about works-in-progress because I definitely can relate. 🙂

    Anyways, I was wondering if in one of your shows you guys could share more about your individual editing process since it seems you both enjoy that part of writing a lot. I’m specifically curious to hear about how you both approach it, like are there specific things you do and in a certain order, or do you just jump in.

    Also, have either of you ever set out to write, say a short story and realize as you were writing it, there was a lot more to it and it became a novella or even a novel? Or, do you always pick a direction before you start because you know from the get-go that an idea is going to be a novel, or a short?

    Lastly, I’ve always wondered, since you both go through publishers, what all goes into pricing paperbacks vs ebooks? And as an author do you have any say?

    Thanks.

    • Those are all interesting questions, Brian. And I think the answers, from both John and me, would take up too much room here. So I’m going to suggest to John that we devote an upcoming podcast to answering your questions and any others that come in. So…any other questions out there?
