Craft-minded series: Trusting the Craft You Already Know, featuring Andrea Bartz

Oct 31, 2022

Andrea Bartz

This week we’re kicking off NaNoWriMo (Happy November) with a final bonus craft-minded episode. Grant and Brooke talk with thriller writer Andrea Bartz about her process—including the Pomodoro Method, creating fake deadlines, and writing discovery drafts. This is a perfect episode to GET YOU STARTED, which Andrea acknowledges is one of the hardest things a writer can do. This week’s show is also a reminder about how much you already know about craft that you don’t even know you know. Tune in to discover more.


Andrea Bartz is a Brooklyn-based writer and editor and author of three thriller novels, The Lost Night, The Herd, and most recently, We Were Never Here, a Reese’s Book Club pick and New York Times bestseller. She’s also a journalist whose work has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Travel + Leisure, Marie Claire, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Women’s Health, USA Today, Elle, and many other outlets.
