Sam Byers

In Epsiode 47 we talk to Sam Byers. 

We talk about the difficulty in thinking ideas through without writing them down and the pressure for ideas to eventually be written. Writing a journal alongside writing a novel. Getting the voice right before anything else and the vast gulf between dialogue on the page and in the real world – and the different purposes dialogue is serving in each.

Sam has a website:
