For five years, now, The Every Day Novelist has brought you an almost-daily dose of writing solidarity. In that time, we’ve brought you an episode every day and a half (on average), answered your questions, brought you special guests, and your questions have kept the conversation going.

I love doing this show, I love seeing your careers grow, sharing your creative struggles, and exploring new idea spaces as we talk every day. But producing the show isn’t free–from research to production to (especially) post-production, it eats up a lot of Dan-hours.

Your questions fuel the show, and your donation makes it possible for me to make the show a priority without skimping on my responsibilities to my family and clients. If what I do is valuable to you, please take time to show your support with the occasional donation or a recurring subscription.
