I'm an amateur screenwriter from boston and I totally dig your podcast. You have a great chemistry, I like listening to you, and it's really good to get a woman's perspective - seems rare on writing podcasts. Please keep posting them.

The Narrative Breakdown

Can't get enough of the great editorial advice Cheryl Klein provides. These podcasts provide lots of food for thought about crafting and appreciating story--and it's fun to hear Cheryl and James talking about story elements using movies as well as books.

I love being able to listen to the podcasts while I walk or drive--they keep my mind turning long after the podcasts are over. Wonderful for writers, but also for anyone who likes to think about what makes a story (in any form) "good" or compelling. Very relaxed, natural presentation--like listening in on an interesting conversation.

Check out Cheryl's book, "Second Sight", if you want more!


After listening to the five current episodes, I think this is already becoming one of my favorite podcasts. I'm a college student and have been writing for most of my life, but I've found it really difficult to find resources about plot and structure, as the creative writing classes I've taken have mainly focused on how to write clean prose. So it's been amazing to find these podcasts -- I love all the examples of movies and books with certain kinds of structures, and the sense of humor wound into the analysis keeps it engaging. I'm hoping to learn a lot, and I'm introducing my roommate (who also writes) to this, too.
