S5 E64 NaNoWriMo Special Compilation
On the Podcast: NaNoWriMo Special Featuring Chris Bohjalian, Ibram X. Kendi, Dani Shapiro, and More!

November is National Novel Writing Month, otherwise known as NaNoWriMo, a time when new writers and experienced authors alike participate in a single self-directed goal: write 50,000 words of a novel in thirty days. To celebrate the creative pursuit, this special episode of This Is the Author is a compilation of some of our favorite author answers to the question, “what makes a good story?” Whether you are looking for the motivation to get words on the page or are curious how other writers approach their work, take a screen break and listen to bestselling authors Chris Bohjalian, Ibram X. Kendi, Dani Shapiro, Matt de la Pena, and others as they share their no-fail story ingredients.
