Here’s the final installment of my interview with Orson Scott Card. I probably failed in my attempt to not be too much of a fanboy when asking him about his work. There IS some good stuff here on the structure of a novel and some examples of how he thinks he didn’t get [...]
This is the second part of the Orson Scott Card interview. This was actually the first part I recorded with OSC and myself PLUS the added bonus of Ed Schubert who is the new editor of InterGalactic Medicine Show The audio quality with both of them talking wasn’t quite what I expected/wanted, so [...]
OK, I got an hour or so of interview with OSC at his class this weekend. I’m breaking it up into three shows, which I’ll be putting up over the next few days. The next two should have better sound quality than this one as I’ll have time to edit them more, but [...]
Getting it down and Wordtripper books.

Roberts Rules of Writing by Robert [...]

We’re still nailing down the formats, and I’m still getting the laptop back to full functionality. I’m hoping my moderators and some of our more experienced writers will record a response to some of the thoughts on writing that I talk about in this podcast, and we’ll get those integrated into the NEXT episode. [...]
We’ve changed the name from The Wordtrip Podcast to It’s the Story Stupid, the Wordtrip podcast. I guess with the name change I could re-start at #01… but I don’t think I will. We’re discussing the next three plots in 20 Master Plots. I tried to talk a little slower tonight, I [...]
