Insights and Inspiration for Writers/Readers from Tom Hanks

I don’t talk about the process of writing nearly enough on my blog, but with NaNoWriMo beginning tomorrow, I couldn’t help but create a post after I listened to a helpful podcast earlier today.

I’ve followed self-help/entreprenuer blogger/writer Danielle LaPorte for years now. As much as I love seeing her written messages, I think I enjoy her video and audio messages more. Danielle has a calming, soothing aura about her that I really dig.

This morning on Instagram she shared a photo and link to her podcast she co-hosts with Linda Siversten called The Beautiful Writers. In their latest podcast they interviewed Tom Hanks abut his new book Uncommon Type and I found the interview to be super insightful, fun and inspiring.

Tom speaks about his experiences as a writer, his preference for typewriters (he owns over 200 of them!) and his thoughts on chasing the Muse in the modern world (here’s a hint, put down your Smartphone).

I hope you’ll take a listen to the podcast and you’ll get as much enjoyment out of it as I did!
