As Much Protein as an Egg – Episode 9

Seth Harwood PodcastsHere are chapters 15-16 of the novel. Again, we’re in the world of 9/11 with Billy Pilgrim. This is the content I thought of when I originally chose to podcast this book. (Listen here).





As with my story “Tuesday,” I was feeling a connection between 9/11 and COVID-19. Well, we’ve blown that entirely out of the water now. Stick around to hear why I think so. 2020? By far the worst!

Walter Mosley
“The most important lesson I’ve learned as a writer is that practice of the art is something I must exercise every day. The reason for this constant training is that any idea worth discovering is bigger than my head. The twists and turns, story and plot, characters and character development of a novel cannot be held in a single thought or even in a train of thought. This novel takes up a lot of space and needs room to breathe and evolve.”

Annie Dillard
“A work in progress quickly becomes feral. It reverts to a wild state overnight. It is barely domesticated, a mustang on which you one day fastened a halter, but which now you cannot catch. It is a lion you cage in your study. As the work grows, it gets harder to control; it is a lion growing in strength. You must visit it every day and reassert your mastery over it. If you skip a day, you are, quite rightly, afraid to open the door to its room. You enter its room with bravura, holding a chair at the thing and shouting, "Simba!”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Seth. It's greatly appreciated. If you love a good mystery, and you have either a Kindle, Nook or iBooks, I encourage you to try a sample of my first novel. It's called FORBIDDEN STEPS and it's getting raves and 5 stars across the board. Check out what folks are saying by clicking on the link below, then scroll downward.
