He also explains how the book can serve as a useful depiction of what it's like to live as an artist.   After the interview, June and co-host Isaac Butler talk more about what we can learn from the letters of great writers.

For this week's episode of Working Overtime, host June Thomas and co-host Isaac Butler speak to Slate contributor and author of Praying with Jane Eyre, Vanessa Zoltan, about jumping into the month-long writing exercise called NaNoWriMo. NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month, is when a writer commits to writing a 50,000 word novel in the span of the month of November. As Vanessa explains, this can be an exercise in creative freedom that does away with the typical structure and hang-ups that come with producing “good writing.” Do you have a question about creative work?

This week, Isaac Butler and Dan Kois fill in for Stephen and Dana, joining to chat about Netflix's new series, Wednesday. Then, they talk about the documentary, All the Beauty and the Bloodshed. Finally, they discuss what our Spotify Wrapped results tell us about ourselves.  In Slate Plus, the panel shares a fun follow-up on one of Julia's recent endorsements.  Email us at culturefest@slate.com. Endorsements Dan: I'm endorsing a delightful book called What Artists Wear by Charlie Porter. It is exactly what it sounds like. This book really reminded me that art is work and it demands respect as a result of that, but it also reminds you that artists are often total, delightful weirdos.  Julia: Somehow I didn't yet share the song that I liked best in 2022. It's a song I considered submitting for Summer Strut. Frankly, I'm a little bit embarrassed because it's a song about having breasts and really enjoying having breasts. It's “Coconuts” by Kim Petras. It's very funny and very peppy.  Isaac: I'm endorsing Connie Willis' wonderful novel, To Say Nothing of the Dog. It is incredibly funny. The Victorian era gets satirized brilliantly. It's just a soup-to-nuts delight. If you're looking to have a really fun week of reading on your hands, this book is a great bet.  Podcast production by Cameron Drews. Production assistance by Yesica Balderrama. Outro music is "Pike Place Market" by Rockin' For Decades. If you enjoy this show, please consider signing up for Slate Plus.
