My Podcast Debut
My friends James Monohan and Cheryl Klein are both story-masters: She’s a big-time book editor who worked on the Harry Potter books and runs the super-useful blog Brooklyn Arden. James is a USC-trained video editor and screenwriter who has been developing a neat writing-app called The Storyometer.
As if all that’s not enough, the two have recently started their own podcast: The Narrative Breakdown. All seven episodes are well-worth a listen (True story: I was listening to the last one and missed my subway stop for first time in years) but I especially recommend the most recent, since their guest co-host is this guy right here!
They had me out to their place in Brooklyn, where we discussed scene construction, drawing from this series and especially this piece. I thought it went awfully well. Luckily, my voice is no longer as squeaky as it was when I was a young rake.
