John McNally PhD - Award-Winning Author, Screenwriter, Lecturer, English Professor

As the school year winds down, a Ph.D joins the podcast once again, this time to talk about fiction writing and The Promise of Failure. His most recent book is a collection of lectures and essays he's given to writing students about the certainty of rejection and how best to handle it and move on from it. 

I mean, what better guest and topic are there for the Why I'll Never Make It podcast??

He shares how he combats writer's block and why acting and theater play a vital role in his own writing as well as how he teaches his students.
