“One Question: Developing an Idea” at Balticon 48

October 12, 2014 Posted by Dave Robison

Batimore Science Fiction SocietyYou get an idea for a story. Now what? What happens between the inspiration and perspiration? How do you prepare and develop a story idea so it’s ready to be written?

That’s what I asked seven gifted and articulate writers at this year’s Balticon 48 (sponsored by the Baltimore Science Fiction Society).  The answers from Paul E. Cooley, Jared Axelrod, Maria V. Snyder, Starla Huchton, Pip Ballantine, Nobilis Reed, and Myke Cole are as diverse and inspired as the people we asked.

In an intriguing bit of serendipity, Ben Delano of the Reader-Writer Podcast was asking a different question that dovetailed nicely into my own. So I invited him and his co-host Mary Ellen Warren to join me on this episode in exploring the answers to my question. They graciously reciprocated and allowed me to discuss there’s on Reader-Writer. It’s a lovely bit of synchronicity stretched across two podcasts, and I’m pleased to offer Part I here on the Roundtable (look for Part II on the Reader-Writer podcast).

Workshop Episode 39 (Guest Host: Cecilia Tan)

November 27, 2012 Posted by Dave Robison

The Roundtable Podcast, Workshop Episode 39, with Cecilia Tan and Nobilis Reed Cecilia Tan – author, visionary, and activist who’s passions are as diverse as the literary works they inspire – returns to the Big Chair at the Roundtable to infuse this Workshop episode with he unique and eloquent brand of literary awesomeness. We are joined by Guest Writer Nobilis Reed, a veteran author in his own right with a wealth of stories, podcasts, and audio adventures to his  name. His erotic noire steampunk fantasy (yeah, that’s right… a four-genre mash-up. One might say a veritable orgy of genres *rimshot*) inspires a vigorous discussion from all sides of the table, which leads – as always – to a mighty hoard of Literay Gold. (And, after you fill your pockets, there’s even more writerly goodness in Cecilia’s Showcase Episode!)

The Roundtable Goes to Balticon (pt 1 of 2)

Balticon 46

This year I had the privilege and pleasure of attending Balticon 46. I’ve been to game and fantasy conventions before, but never Balticon, and I had heard it was THE con to attend for podcasters and new media creators and fans alike.

Wow.  Yeah.  It was amazing… fabulous panel discussions, great events, remarkable guests… and you couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting an author, editor, publisher, or podcaster (I tried and, for the record, it wasn’t a real cat and I apologize to John Mierau for any injuries sustained during the experiment).  I learned so much and had the pleasure of finally meeting people who had existed only as voices in my iPad.  Just amazing.

Brion was unable to make the scene (with some excuse about continuing the education of our nation’s youth or something) but I had to share the awesomeness with him.  So I walked around the convention asking these remarkable creators one question: (more…)
