Another awesome episode featuring the awesome Rachel Aaron (RachelAaron.net)! This time she discusses world-building with Ben and Guillermo, and we find out a little bit about how to sneak your voice into a given book too. Afterwards, Ben is all alone because Guillermo would rather sleep. Thanks for listening. Write!

In this (much-delayed) episode Rachel explains how to write 500,000 words in one afternoon (individual results may vary). After this episode. and with some luck, we'll all reach that first million in no time flat. Read her blog on the topic at RachelAaron.net and follow her on Twitter @Rachel_Aaron, and don't forget to get yourself a copy of her newly released book, The Spirit War. Afterwards, Ben and Guiilermo make massive apologies for how long this episode took to get out there, talk about how much we rip off The Dead Robots' Society (DeadRobotsSociety.com), then make general pleas to save Bryan Thomas Schmidt's car (BryanThomasSchmidt.net). Enjoy.
