What a great resource!
Two masters of their respective crafts collaborating for bite-sized, straight-to-the-point and, most importantly, useful tips on honing your craft when it comes to writing! Dave is a brilliant producer and host that allows for Cargill to shine as a concise, enthusiastic teacher. Really looking forward to more episodes, guys! Keep it up!
Looking Forward to More
Great first episode! I remember Cargill once tweeted about three ways to make the audience like a character. Would love an episode on that — especially to discuss “the character who does something entirely for herself,” since that sounded like the most unconventional of the three.
Writing brilliance, distilled in audio form
C Robert Cargill (@Massawyrm), co-screenwriter (with Scott Derrickson) of Marvel Studios’ DOCTOR STRANGE and Blumhouse’s SINISTER, author of novels DREAMS AND SHADOWS and QUEEN OF THE DARK THINGS, has been a wellspring of writing tips and inspiration on Twitter for some time.
His tweets are manuscript manna and a boon to the creative soul. They are also a welcome breath of fresh air for the Dank Web that Twitter can be.
The fact that his significant storytelling skills are now being shared in podcast form is an absolute delight, and a potential game-changer for those looking to build their skills.
Thank you, David and Cargill! Looking very much forward to future installments!
If you want more Cargill talking story, he and Brian Salisbury have a prodigious back catalog of goodness at the JUNKFOOD CINEMA podcast, which is also terrific.
