Listen: Charles Dickens, Lakeland discussed on The Joe Rogan Experience
"They're they're so happy. And and I'm happy to spend time among people, and I'm happy to have the story complete in a way that I never ever could have an -ticipant, it'd that's fascinating. So you do it at the gym. Yeah. The gym is really great because you're around people, and you have these recovery's between set. So you have a little time to talk and at the same time you have during the exercise itself, you have time to think, and so it paces the talking versus a thinking, and it's also kind of highly oxygenated, and it's physically active and your mind is kind of. You mind is not engaged with something else. Your mind is kind of disengaged like it is while you're taking a shower the a lot of people like to walk. They like to read a right read a little bit of it. And then walk and bring a recorder or their phone to record on think probably along the same lines. Charles Dickens walked somewhere between twelve and twenty miles a day as he wrote. Well, and the the lakeland poets walked constantly. I mean walking is a big part of writing anything, physical rightly anything. We've forcing your body to move forcing the blood to flow and also mindless Zun allows your mind to wander. Yeah.

And then incorporate their take is this something you've always done because of the workshop ING is it just this willingness to be open with your ideas and express them. Yeah. Really workshop was the crucial thing having that social expectation that you're going to bring work every week. And it was also kind of a party a reward for having brought the work, and it was also a way of testing the work. So that you knew whether it was working, you know, you weren't constantly sort of questioning yourself. Workshop just provides so many really important ways of keeping riot. Keeping you writing. Now, and you've done this always seems like you've done this most of your career, I have and this is not the first workshop I've been bumped out of the first workshop, I was in was very a lot of very nice, ladies, and I was probably twenty eight and I had written a scene in which a man a young man has done up an inflatable sex doll. So it looks exactly like the woman. He's obsessed with and during the the seduction of the sex doll. He accidentally snags the back of it with zipper of its dress. And he realizes during the foreign occasion that it is gradually losing air. So he's got to copulate faster and faster to try to achieve orgasm before this thing completely goes flat.."
