The wonderful Mur Lafferty managed to interview Neil Gaiman at this year’s Balticon sci-fi and fantasy convention, and the resulting podcast is fascinating. She asks all the right questions regarding starting out with writing, and gets some interesting stories out of the Neverwhere / The Sandman / American Gods / Day The Saucers Came author. He also talks about how there’s no such thing as writer’s block, which isn’t something you hear very often! It’s definitely worth a listen if you’re at all interested in the idea of writing, and what it means in practice.
I’ve listened to Mur’s I Should Be Writing podcast for nearly a year, and it’s always well thought-out and entertaining. However, I do think there’s a possibility that she interviewed the wrong guy in this show, because there’s no way Neil Gaiman sounds like that 🙂
