The Creative Conversation #5 - Nick Earls
In this episode of the Creative Conversation I spoke to the very funny, very awesome novelist Nick Earls. Nick is the author of the novels The Fix, Welcome to Normal, Zigzag Street, 48 Shades of Brown, Monica Bloom, Perfect Skin, World of Chickens and the new childrens series Word Hunters. His latest novel, Analogue Men, came out July 2014.
Nick was very funny, and as you'll hear in the episode, made me giggle till I snorted. One of my favourite quotes from the interview is below:
One of the things I really like about being a writer is that I’m 18 books into my career now and I know that I haven’t learnt everything, there’s more for me to learn. Any time I sit down to write a new book, it’s a new puzzle I haven’t learnt how to solve yet. I’ve got to come up with new stuff for it. And I like the way it stretches me in that way.
