ITSS in the future?

May 4th, 2007

No, we’ve not forgotten about the Wordtrip Podcast yet. We’ve actually got some interviews planned for later this year. The Wordtrip podcast is being re-worked, re-tooled, re-thought, and we’ll see where we end up. Until then… You should be writing.

Obviously we didn’t get a Novel Writing Week podcast out

December 28th, 2006

Or a post, or a NaNoWriMo one, or anything else. The day job change in June has proven to be a hinderance to my side projects like this podcast. It hasn’t died completely, but it is in a nice coma waiting some good drugs to revive it.

Delays and other Delays

September 25th, 2006

We’ve been a month since a podcast, and that one was after a long break. It’s the STORY Stupid hasn’t podfadded, but as I’m working a different job, my schedule is such that I’ve not been able to work out time for recording and editing yet. There should be an episode soon as we’re going to be kicking of Novel Writing Week soon and I’ll get some content up about that. Talk to you all soon.

Upcoming interview

July 23rd, 2006

FYI: I’ve been out of town for a week, but right before I left I did an interview with Richard Lowry.
Richard is one of our Wordtrip writers who we’ve watched go from self-published book on the first gulf war to very successful traditional publisher book on the battle for An Nasiriyah. I’ve got to edit the interview together as I did it with skype and audio hijack pro, but it should be coming up later this week.

ITSS #18 OSC Interview Part 3

June 24th, 2006

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 it right in some of his books.

This runs only about 10 minutes as I was eager to move on to writing questions.
