What lessons can fiction writers learn from nonfiction? How does a professional journalist find angles that his subjects want to talk about? On today’s podcast, writer Andy Frye gives us insights into these topics and more.
Andy Frye is not only a talented writer himself, but he’s interviewed some of the most accomplished people in the world. Andy has written for Rolling Stone, ESPN, and currently writes about sports business for Forbes. Over his career, Andy has interviewed hundreds of athletes, rock stars and other celebrities, and now has published his first novel, Ninety Days in the 90s.
In today’s episode, you’ll learn…
- Lessons from star athletes and musicians
- Looking for non-obvious stories
- Handling time travel in fiction
“Just keep with it. Find time to write, find time to do whatever it is that your creative pursuit is. Because I think you’ll, you’ll be a better, happier, and more settled person just based on my experience.”
“So I think you need to have some sort of outlet that is more play than work. …It should be about that. It shouldn’t be about money or fame. Like if you’re really into quilting, be the best quilter ever.”
