Ep.51 NaNoWriMo, Songwriting and Reading the Classics w/ Brett Randell

Brett Randell and I met several years ago at a songwriting workshop and funny enough, I had no idea he wrote novels until we talked about him being on the show. I really enjoy his songwriting and it was great to hear about his book and story writing as well.

We talk about NaNoWriMo, which for those of you who aren’t familiar stands for National Novel Writing Month, where thousands of writers from around the world commit to writing 50,000 words in 30 days. Brett is currently writing 1750 words a day and we talk about how he’s doing that and how he balances a careers as a musician with his writing.

The song in the introduction is one of Brett’s and throughout the episode I’ll be playing songs from his new album which I’ll link to in the show notes, darkenthepage.com/051. He’ll also be playing a segment of one of his new songs live in the middle of the episode.
