The first line of any story is the most important.
People get drawn in to a book because of the first line.
Brandon, Howard and Dan talk about how to start a book and what’s important about the first line.
Are you a fan of Howard (who isn’t)? Or have you recently been introduced to him via Writing Excuses and want to know more about him and how he became a comic writer? Well you’re in luck because Howard was recently interviewed on Wired’s Geek Dad podcast. So take a listen and enjoy.
We’re finally on iTunes now (it can take several days for us to get listed in the browser but you should be able to find us via a search) so I’ve re-added the iTunes button on the left, as well as in Yahoo podcasts and we should be on the Zune Marketplace soon as well.
If you have a favorite podcast directory that we’re not on let us know in the comments and we’ll see what we can do.
Brandon, Howard and Dan discuss where their ideas come from and Howard tells us a little too much about his love of Pepsi.
We’re still figuring some things out with the website here, but the important part–the podcast itself–is up and ready to go! We’ll be posting a new podcast each Monday. Each 15 minute podcast will some aspect of writing, and (hopefully) will be snappy, fun, and informative. Whether you’re an aspiring writer or just want some insight into the way writers think, we hope you enjoy listening!
