Episode 259: Which Type of Writer are You?

Show Notes

Vicky and Joe are back after a week off the podcast—and they have plenty to say. Much of it about why Joe has been striding manfully around the estate with a saw. But really, it’s all about the writing: and this week they want to know, which type of writer are you? With a big caveat and a little rant about people on the internet who try to fit you in boxes and tell you that you’re wrong if their stuff doesn’t work. So… which type of writer are you? Just kidding. A bit. Tune in and find out why it doesn’t really matter…
