This week, a repeat of one of our favourite episodes, from March 2015.

James Somers created Draftback, a tool that lets you replay what you've written in Google Docs. He argues that good writing is hard work, and you can gain insight into your writing process by watching it.

James mentioned this article by Chadwick Matlin.

James has been thinking about this for a while, as you can see in this article he wrote in 2010 for The Atlantic.
