Lani and I had our State of the PopD lunch at Panera today, and we came away with good stuff thanks to your feedback.
First, we’re switching back to Fridays. It’s going to be awful for some people, but I wanted my Saturday nights and for a lot of people, Saturday is date night/family night/church night/gig night, etc. Beginning or ending of the weekend is just better than middle of the weekend.
Second, we agreed that the podcasts need more structure so we’re focusing on writing comedy in April, taking the four guy comedies apart according to a specific outline that hits things like protagonist and goal and structure, but all in terms of comedy. We’ll still ramble–we’re ramblers–but at least it’ll be focused rambling. Kind of. I like the idea of the fifteen-minute-after-chat, too, because then we can steal ideas from you all.
We also decided that since we’re really curious about self-publishing in e-format, we’re going to do the PopD RomCom book ourselves as an experiment. You all will have no need for it because we’ll be recapping what we did here and you were here for it, but it might be nice for other people who want to write romcom or just know why the hell it’s so broken as genre right now.
Finally, we picked a theme for the six weeks after the Guy Comedy month: Heists and Capers. Movie list to be posted shortly.
So it’ll be Friday at 7 (chat at 6:30 with longer chat after the movie if Lani okays it), more organized podcasts, and a PopD e-book.
How’s that gonna work out for you?
