A word on Episode XI – About the creative process

I am often caught off guard about how my words… impact others.

And it never ceases to humble me.

A response to a reader… who asked if a person can be taught “how to write” and who queried about my creative process (a Spring flashback).


The assumption is made…. that I sit on a rock in a remote locale and in the process of sitting:

An epiphany of ethereal proportions descends upon me, that I quickly transcribe into prose or narrative.

Sounds glorious, doesn’t it?


Well… that’s bullshit, it isn’t easy at all… actually the creative process hurts at times, sometimes the prose that has inspired a small legion was written through the storms of what I refer to as the Fuckery.

On Episode XI of my (not so fledgling podcast As the Incense Burns) I talk about one of those mediums:

The Conversion Method... come through and add me to your playlist, have words do travel.

Episode 35 – What is your value proposition? As the Incense Burns 🔥

On this episode, I have an ongoing soliloquy, as I attempt to answer a question on the benefits of water therapy, in a time where selfishness seems to be the default setting for living. I wonder about those things that we honor and hold most dear… our FOUNDATIONS. That ongoing journey of living, that omnipresent search for God's face. I thought of my family and the majesty of history repeating and how we have an obligation to leave the Earth in a better place. I also touch on the poetry of living, genealogy and food for the soul with a tie in to the impending cookbook. Lastly, I make a humble ask at the end of the episode… for ways that you can support, spread the word to those who haven't heard. Such as: Becoming a monthly supporter of the podcast. Grab a book or two and write a review. For your foodie and literary fix? Follow the handle #shunpwrites on all the social media channels. I'm an indie publishing house, we are trying to keep the lights on and the incense burning. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/shunpwrites/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/shunpwrites/support
