Letting go is hard to do (as they say), but with a new year dawning we thought it would be a good time to discuss it. We’re letting go of old works that have passed their “Use by” time, and we’re also letting go of expectations that only hold us back.
The last time our courageous hosts delved into the forums, Amanda was unable to join them, but now she gets her chance to speak out before everyone heads off for the holidays. Join us as we discuss loads of topics and have a few laughs along the way.
In this episode our hosts get a little more personal than usual and discuss their own works in progress. They talk about what those projects are, and why they are working on them at all. Join us as they lay their souls bare to the universe.
In this latest episode, our automaton hosts chit chat about what to do when you feel like you’ve run out of ideas, and where to look for that spark when your batteries run dry. It happens to us all (well, not Amanda, but the rest of us poor shlubs suffer from it), so let’s talk about how to handle it.
Well, in a move of unprecedented selfishness, Amanda took the night off because she was sick. Talk about rude, putting her health above the show. Hrmph! Be that as it may, our two stalwart and true man-boy hosts chinned up and soldiered on without her. In this episode they discuss topics raised on the forum, going into detail about their thoughts and feelings regarding a wide variety of discussion threads. Join them as they carry on without Amanda and her icky germs.
Last week we got to hear from a professional editor, and I hope everyone learned something from that interview, but all of us aspiring writers have to do some editing on our own, too. So, how do you do it? Where do you start? Hardcopy or soft? Come and join us while we discuss that very topic.
Welcome, everyone! Today we bring you a very special episode of the Dead Robots’ Society. In this episode we were fortunate enough to have the chance to interview Nathan Hemmelgarn, a professional editor, to see what life is like on the other side of the red pen of doom. He had plenty of insight to offer, as well as helpful pieces of advice. Come and join us as we pelt Nathan with question after question, testing his ability to stand against fiery oratory assault. It’s exciting and fun!
In this week’s episode we discuss the topic of how writing evolves over time, be it in the outlining phase, in the actual writing phase, or even when it just comes to the ideas. Writing, like all art, is a living thing, and as with all living things, it changes over the course of its life. How hard that process is, or if it’s even allowed to happen at all, is in this show. So, come and listen!
Writing is often a solitary activity, but it doesn’t have to be, and when we involve others the work can definitely benefit, be they your first reader, a writing group, or a workshop. Join us as we discuss writing as a group activity.
In this week’s show we discuss our takes on short stories, novellas, and novels. What purposes do they serve, which do we prefer, and does it even matter? Come, listen, and let us know!
