They guys talk about how freeing it's been to write improvisationally this last week. Discovery writing is really letting them explore their worlds and characters without feeling like they're just robotically connecting pre-determined plot points.

This week's book, which can be enjoyed by kingkillers and non-kingkillers alike, manages to be filled with meta-references to fantasy fiction without being annoying, which is rare enough to be the stuff of fantasy all by itself.By overduepod@gmail.com (Andrew Cunningham and Craig Getting).

The return of Shelly Mazzanoble in the introduction is immediately felt when we talk about the Bachelor and D&D before setting up the rest of the segments.
