Writing Excuses, Season 3 Episode 15

The lovely men at Writing Excuses invited me to stick around and record another episode with them at World Con. They’ve just posted it the Writing Process Q & A. Brandon, Dan and Howard answer a wide range of questions and I tag along for the ride.

The principles of puppetry as related to fiction

While I was at WorldCon, Howard Tayler asked me to swing by and participate in the Writing Excuses podcast panel.  He described it as a bunch of fifteen minute podcasts in front of a live audience, which, I must say, was great fun.

Brandon Sanderson, Howard Tayler and Dan Wells are very engaging hosts and made me feel quite welcome. For the first episode, Brandon asked me if there was anything I particularly wanted to talk about.  I said that lately I’ve been talking about how puppetry intersects with my fiction.  So we spent fifteen minutes talking about the four principles of puppetry.

They’ve just posted the podcast, so go give it a listen.

Then, if you are curious, you can go read the Puppetry Manipulation Clinic handout I have over on my puppetry website.
