What do you do when you've got multiple projects to juggle? This week's episode is all about figuring out what to prioritize when it comes to our creative endeavors. How do we decide what needs to get done first? How do we stick with a project once we've chosen to prioritize it? How important is it as a new author to consider which book to make your debut novel? Yale and Justin hash out all that and more in this episode of Quick Bits.

This week on Quick Bits, we talk about negativity. Ever get into that headspace where you question whether you're any good at this creative thing at all? We've been there too, and it's a natural part of the process. This episode explores some of the factors that may contribute to a negative view of one's creative output and strategies for dealing with the fallout of such frustrations.

This week on Quick Bits, Yale and Justin discuss our tendency to lost interest in our stories, whether while writing them or years afterwards. Sometimes, it's okay to move on from a project. But the reverse is also true--sometimes, our love for an old project spontaneously reignites.

This week, Yale and Justin discuss the merits (and drawbacks) of introducing a large cast of characters all at once. Is it better to slowly introduce your main cast one at a time, or are there situations where you might want to establish the whole cast right off the bat? If so, how do you prevent the reader from becoming overwhelmed?  Please check out our partners, the publisher tdotSpec at http://tdotspec.com/ Follow us at: IG: @storyfromscratchpodcast Twitter: @storyfscratch

This week, in a special episode, Yale and Justin take an in-depth look at two stories from tdotSpec's Speculative North Magazine. First, we examine Not a Vampire by Jeremiah Kleckner (which can be found in Issue 2), and then we discuss The Alchemy of Curses by Joshua Grasso (which can be found in Issue 1).

This week, Yale and Justin discuss to what extent they've planned out what books and series they intend to write in the future. Some writers develop complex worlds in which they plan to write dozens of novels, and others have only a single story they want to tell. Where do you fall on that scale?

This week on Story From Scratch, we wonder just how clear we need to spell things out for our readers. Is it okay to make the reader work hard once in a while, or does subtlety only alieante your audience, relegating you to a niche?  Please check out our partners, the publisher tdotSpec at http://tdotspec.com/ Follow us at: IG: @storyfromscratchpodcast Twitter: @storyfscratch

This week, Yale and Justin talk about their old writing... and how terrible it was. From frontloading paragraphs upon paragraphs of exposition, to going on author diatribes about things that have absolutely nothing to do with the plot, we've done it all. Sometimes it's worthwhile to look back and reflect on how far we've come (especially if we can get a good laugh out of it).

26 min 29 sec

This week on Quick Bits, we discuss Justin's concept of a dynamic character arc. What if instead of having an arc where a character doesn't change until the climax of the novel, one were to write a story in which a character goes through multiple significant changes of the course of the novel? Yale and Justin debate whether this style of storytelling is actually feasable and has the potential to be satisfying. Examples are provided from some of Justin's works-in-progress, so beware of potential spoilers!

This week on quick bits, Yale and Justin talk about where to end a particular writing session. Do you stop at the end of a scene? End of a chapter? Is it better to write for a set amount of time or to write a set amount of words?

This week on Quick Bits, Justin and Yale revisit the topic of themes. Do you ever wonder how to straddle that line between conveying a message and force-feeding your opinions down the reader's throat? Do you have concerns about making definitive statements on grander concepts you fear you lack authority on? Well, we do--so join us as we hash out the intricacies of thematic subject matter.

Welcome to Quick Bits! For the month of May, due to our busy schedules, we'll be publishing these shorter, more-focused episodes, each delving into a single topic.

Our friend Peter G. Reynolds joins us once again, this time for a deep dive into the hurdles of writing books for children. After all, children aren't (usually) the ones who write children's books. They're not the ones who edit them. And they're not the ones who buy them, either. How do all of these factors affect the way we approach writing them?

This week, we have a chat with children's author and podcaster Peter G. Reynolds. We talk about the influence writing groups have on our creative process and how an author can become pidgeon-holed within their community. Peter also shares a bit about the inception of his lovely podcast, Musings and Other Nonsense, and tells us how the "yes, and" philosophy from improv can help you overcome writer's block.

This week, we get an update from Yale on how his querying journey has been going thus far... which leads us to the topic of how to deal with the anxiety of waiting and the crushing blow of rejection.

This week, we respond to questions and comments from our listeners! Sticking to our theme for the month, we touch on various topics related to querying. Find out how many agents to query at a time, whether you can query multiple agents at the same agency, and what sorts of unexpected questions agents might ask you to provide answers to.  Special thanks to everyone who sent questions in!

It's our Valentine's Day special! Our friend Ana joins us again to discuss writing romance (particularly in genres other than romance). We get Ana's insights on how romance can absolutely gut a character, how to balance a romantic subplot with the main plot, and whether it's possible to write a blank-slate love interest. And remember: don't skimp on dessert! You can find Ana's writing in the anthology Sharp & Sugar Tooth: Women Up To No Good edited by Octavia Cade.

This week on Story From Scratch... we have a difficult time staying on topic. Our good friend Anahita joins us for a discussion on writing multiple projects at the same time, not shying away from harsh critique, and how our educational backgrounds can inform our writing. We also discuss whether Casper was ever alive, what kind of animal Yale looks like, and whether we can trust people who don't believe in ghosts.

This episode, we each give our top 5 list of best twist endings and explain why we think they're so great. Between books, movies, and TV shows, our conversation reaches a wide net, so be warned! Major spoilers ahead.  We talk about Joss Whedon films and classic anime, comedies and horror, novels and short stories, and more.

This episode, we give our takes on how classic movies/books/tv shows could have ended with a twist ending instead of how they actually ended. What starts as a fun game turns into a test of our co-hosts' knowledge of Shakespeare, avoiding New England accents, and surprisingly good additions to some already really great works. We discuss Romeo and Juliet, The Hobbit (not the films), Iron Man, Goodfellas and more!   Please check out our partners, the publisher tdotSpec at http://tdotspec.com/ Follow us at: IG: @storyfromscratchpodcast Twitter: @storyfscratch

In this episode, we (try) to create our version of a good twist from scratch! Taking inspiration from a number of sources, Yale and Justin try to navigate through the complexities of writing a scene with a good twist, but making it both satisfying and unexpected. We discuss why going a 'full 180' is not that unexpected, and the usefulness of subverting expectations by first setting them. Eventually we come to an agreement on how we would write a battle like the Battle of Helm's Deep in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

In this episode, we return to our long-honoured tradition of coming up with a story idea - from Scratch™!  We "borrow" some ideas from the noble Sherlock Holmes stories once again (it's not stealing if we're upfront about it) and follow the Justin method for coming up with the first paragraph.  It's strange how we always end up in the same comedic/horror bent, but I guess that's what you get from concentrated doses of Justin and Yale.  Please check out our partners, the publisher tdotSpec at http://tdotspec.com/ Follow us at: IG: @storyfromscratchpodcast Twitter: @storyfscratch
