This episode is all about Dan's path as a writer. We're going to take you on a journey that involves new audio equipment, a swampy lawn, and doubling down on mistakes to make even bigger mistakes. Leah even pens a poem about Dan's forthcoming zombie apocalypse novel, so buckle up!
We'll also be exploring my journey to become a writer. My discovery of creative writing in summer school after failing english class, how I used writing in my own teenage rebellion, and how writing is now a way of talking about my traumatic past without actually talking about it. We'll delve into a poignant tale about my mother, who was swindled by a publishing agency, and how this influenced my path as a writer.
We're going all in with Dan's zombie novel. We'll discuss how my time in the military and my experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan have shaped the narrative. We'll examine how I've tried to capture the essence of an invincible enemy and impossible odds. Join me in my dream of writing my zombie novel. My own personal Magnum Opus.
