What do Madonna, Michelangelo, and Michael Stipe have in common? We compare them all to James Breakwell, who built his writing career by workshopping material on Twitter. In his fifth book, How To Be A Man (Whatever That Means), the man behind Xploding Unicorn attempts to determine what manhood is by declaring and dismissing all the things it isn't.
We talk about his writing process, making revisions at 3x speed, how his newsletter has built a solid audience for his book sales, and the burst of pride you feel when your pig makes the police blotter.
