Been too long in coming, but snuck in this review just at the start of the second season. As the lucky guy who won the pod’s flash-fiction contest last year, I wanted to hold off long enough so the review didn’t look like shameless self-promotion or sucking-up (even it it’s a bit of both). For anyone who has stared at the “blank page,” not knowing what the hell to put there, and wanting to avoid channeling Jack Torrance, remember that all work and no play makes for some dull writing. That’s where the Failing Writers come in. Press play, give a listen, and let them bring some playfulness to your writing process. They offer clever, funny fare, tales of their own adventures (and quite a few mis-adventures) and a string of guests with practical advice from the trenches. What’s more, they’ll make you want to write, if only to keep the Boys from yelling at you for not doing the work. Promise you won’t be disappointed. If you are, ask them for your money back.
