On episode 92 of the WRITER 2.0 Podcast I spoke with Sommer Nectarhoff, a senior at Tufts who has already published over a million words. In a wide-ranging interview we discussed:
- how he grew his writing habit from 100 words a day to 15,000 words a day;
- whether the line between “literary” and “genre” fiction is blurring;
- the recent Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West Twitter beef;
- his epic fantasy novels: The Death Of Ydain and The Book of Lokk;
- how self-publishing and genre writing are viewed in academia;
- his writing “cross training”;
- creating different “entry points” for readers;
- how he uses Scrivener to write more per day;
- Reddit and cat videos.
Plus, on “Today in Writing”: Happy Birthday to Horace Greeley.
