I recorded a sprawling and impassioned motivational episode of Death Of 1000 Cuts today, for anyone who wants to write more fiction in 2018. I talk about writing resolutions and why most of them are rubbish, what studies into motivation have shown us works, all the great short and long term reasons why you – yes, you – should write, and 7 Rules for Kicking the Dick Off Your Writing in ’18.

I’m in many ways a petty, mediocre man, but I know what I’m talking about when it comes to writing and if you listen to this I not only guarantee that at the end of it you’ll be totally transformed, but you may well VOID YOUR BOWELS with sheer approval. So be warned.
