18.04: An Interview With Dan Wells

Your Hosts: Mary Robinette Kowal, DongWon Song, Erin Roberts, Dan Wells, and Howard Tayler

In this episode Erin Roberts very enthusiastically launches our interview with “OG” Dan Wells with a delightfully difficult question, paraphrased thusly: “is there advice you gave back in the early days that you still stand by today?”

There are lots of other questions, including one about bacon!

Take a scene from a piece you’re working on and strip out all narration and description. Then adjust the dialogue so that the scene still makes sense.

  1. This week, Mary Robinette, DongWon, Erin, Dan, and Howard turned their attention to Dan Wells. Writing Excuses OG, man of horror, what has changed, what hasn’t? From the past, both good and bad, into the future, this week has a lot of intriguing discussion that you can read in the transcript available now in the archives.

  2. what are the dates for the book analysis’? I just finished The Space Man and I want to know when Mary is going to talk about it.
