Episode #7: Our Survey Says...

Welcome to Procrastinate or Write!

Its our survey episode! A few weeks back, you may recall taking part in our survey about the things that make YOU procrastinate and what you do to stop...well here are the results...and that's not all...this is the very first time, in POWpodcastUK history, that an episode has been recorded with Jenni and Marc being in the same room...we think you'll agree it's a marvellous joy to put upon your ears!

We are helped by coffee and the antics of Jen's beautiful dog, Boo. As well as the survey, we discuss writing fanzines and have a good old catch up! Enjoy!
