The Naked Novelist

1, May,2007

The Naked Novelist is a local show (Melbourne based) but not necessarily only for local people. It can be a bit of a hit and miss affair – but show #23: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Writers, (April 16th)is a beaut.

The podcaster, Brendan Gulifer, is a journalist, non-fiction writer and aspiring novelist. He can a bit self indulgent at times and despite not wanting to fall into the trap of becoming a ‘merchant banker’** he sometimes stumbles on the edge of the bear pit.  What saves this podcast are the interviews.

He has a tendency to rely on contacts associated with his old University writing course. This hasn’t been a problem to date due to the quality of the people interviewed and Brendan’s interview skills.

Worth putting in your feedreader.
