“…though we often soliloquize about writing being a solitary existence with coveted ideas held closer to the chest than Bluebeard’s…
Each week (starting March 6, 2012), Roundtable hosts Dave Robison and Brion Humphrey – joined by authors, publishers and other literati – invite writers to present ideas for stories they’re developing. What follows is a no-holds-barred discussion of the story’s plot, character, pacing, and theme, in an attempt to transform rough concepts and unformed ideas into literary gold.
This pre-episode is much more informal with Dave and Brion introducing themselves to listeners, sharing backgrounds and experiences, and then expounding on the podcast itself. Show formats, legal stuff, and a general overview of the episodes to come is discussed.
The Roundtable Podcast is a writer’s podcast.
Now, there are a LOT of outstanding writer’s podcasts out there. Heck, we at RTP listen to a bunch of them and you’ll find links to many more here on the site.
We’re going to focus on a very specific aspect of the writing process… the ideas.
