A Million Words by Age 24 with Sommer Nectarhoff–Episode 92–February 3 2016

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.

  1. AC, as a fantasy writer, I found this to be one of your most interesting podcasts. Sommer is an interesting and smart guy. A lot more tech savvy than me!
