20 Minutes with Patrick E. McLean

Patrick E. McLean

Patrick E. McLean isn’t really all that interested in how things have been done. Sure, it’s useful for a sense of context and perspective, but if you’re going to imagine a new future, you simply can’t let “convention” get in the way. As the author of “Unkillable” and the “How to Succeed in Evil” series of fiction as well as the founder of “Good Words (Right Order)“, Patrick has stepped boldly off the path and, in doing so, discovered a wealth of insight and inspiration. During this 20(ish) minutes of discourse he shares generously of both with Ryan Stevenson and myself, discussing the “work” of creativity, the value of performance in the context of writing, how things go right (and wrong) and so much more!  (and all this creative mojo is put to the test in in Patrick’s Workshop Episode!)

  1. Just wanted to thank Patrick for the rewrite video series. It got me motivated to A) buckle down and start finishing the story I workshopped way back when on the podcast and B) edit an audio drama review collection. Seeing how he edits makes me look at my darlings with an axe in hand and a smile on my face. 😀
