In place of my own excuses, I'd like to point you towards Writing Excuses. It's an excellent round-table style podcast featuring fantasy novelist Brandon Sanderson (various), cartoonist Howard Tayler (Schlock Mercenary), and horror novelist Dan Wells (I Am Not a Serial Killer). Topics discussed vary, but all of them have to do with writing in some way, and I haven't found any episodes yet that weren't worth listening too.
Also, they update regularly. This is something I could learn from.
