WriterDojo S1 Ep19: Long vs Short Fiction

14 thoughts on “WriterDojo S2 Ep1: Resolutions”

  1. So, if I want to listen to this podcast, I have to go to Anchor and listen on Spotify. No other choice given. I kinda liked Breaker.

  2. Man, Steve’s year sounded terrible. I mean, we knew about the shoulder surgery, but not about the second, and I didn’t know you had to bow out of Larry’s gun training extravaganza. So sorry to hear that.

    Oh, and on a related note, how’s the recovery Jack? I’ve had friends that had things like loss of taste for 6 months, and hope that’s not you.

    1. Oh, I forgot to add: Steve (not sure if you check Larry’s comments or not), I appreciate you continuing to drop hints at your psychopathy. I admit to being one of the things I now anticipate in each podcast.

    1. It’s not just you. Even weirder, if you just go to Breaker.audio (their official website) you get the same thing.

  3. Larry: I just binge-read all 8 of the MHI novels over the last month or so, and Bloodlines ends on a heck of a cliffhanger. Please tell me your New Year’s resolution is Book 9!

    Steve: sounds like 2021 was rough for you. Here’s hoping twenty twenty deuce is better! Now that I’ve run out of MHI, I’m moving on to Residue, and I suspect I’m gonna be really annoyed I can’t immediately jump into book 2.

  4. You guys should interview Lawrence Block. Talk about a writer with experience. He’s been writing forever, and his prose is so crisp and clean, it’s a thing of beauty.

  5. Since the post for the new episode isn’t up yet, I’ll post my thoughts here.

    “If you teleportation magic, FedEx becomes a lot different”

    Ah yes, Eberron, the only post-TSR full setting for D&D worth anything. The biggest courier service in the world DOES have teleportation as an (extremely expensive) option for delivery and the world is built around that concept as well as the largest notary having magical communications magic that works as a quasi-telegraph.

    Speaking of which, its approach to canon is also unique and noteworth. In Eberron fiction and modules are only canon to their direct sequels. Everything else starts at the same point in continuity (what’s established in setting books and nothing else) with the same canon and any details established in those works are optional. Stops any Cerulean Storm tier nonsense that wrecks the setting, stops any Forgotten Realms style lockouts from most lore being given in long fiction, and especially stops any World of Darkness style metaplot nonsense where new players are both totally locked out and stuck with a version of the setting where every threat has been taken. This is really only applicable to tabletop games writing, though it’s great for those.

    “If you have a character’s personality change dramatic from one episode to the other, that’s going to be jarring to people too, unless you have an explanation for what that character is being so different”

  6. We heard the resolutions podcast today. My wife has listened to a variety of writer podcast and really likes yours a lot. Many of them tend toward unfocused rambling and personalities, or promoting the latest piece of software or product, whereas y’all tend to stay focused on storytelling and producing words.
