It was surreal to hear you start with a bit again.  Had me wondering which year it was.

I wonder why the story about the steampunk Victorian cat spoke to Nutshell so much?

EDIT: "beware of crime", "christians", "conservatives", "customer service purgatory", "fantasy", "finding jesus through fanfiction", "good titles wasted", "incurable porn disease", "literature", "misogyny", "nerds", "no plot no problem", "oppression fetish", "paranoia", "please give me money for my stupid idea", "puas", "sex", "spoilt victorian children", "sudden dyslexia", "x meets y and it bites"

Heads up, this isn't showing up like normal in iOS Podcasts (and maybe other podcasting apps). It looks like there might be a problem with the date?

Thanks for pointing that out. The feed is fixed, it should show in your podcatchers shortly.

If I ever get around to writing a detective novel I'm stealing the title That's No Way to Murder a Lady.

So, ALF-reboot jokes aside, this was kind of a weirdly topical episode for me: I've been working on a pitch document for a graphic novel series (mostly just for shits and giggles) so an entire episode of people trying to sell people on their writing feels very familiar. With that in mind, what really stands out to me in this and most of the other "LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE NOVEL I'M WRITING" episodes are how absolutely horrible most of these people are at writing loglines for their stories.

For anyone who's not familiar with the concept: The logline, often called the "elevator pitch" is essentially the heart and soul of the pitching process: It is the summary of what your book/movie/tv show/Darkwing Duck erotic fanfiction is all about, what makes it stand out from other stories and why anyone would want to read/watch it, all condensed into under 70 words. The length of the logline is super important because if most people aren't invested in a concept within a minute or so of reading they're going to get bored and wander off.

It all comes back to the philosophy "Nobody wants to read your story" and it's really readily demonstrated in these sort of vanity publishing endeavors. While these people may have spent a lot of time writing their magnum opus I, as the casual consumer, don't give a shit: There are more stories out there than any individual could possibly read in a lifetime so I'm not going to waste time on yours unless you give me a good reason and if the summary of your story doesn't get to that good reason quickly I'm going to assume there isn't one and leave.

So yeah, kind of a ramble on my part (ironically ignoring my own advice about getting to the point) but just something I got thinking about while I listened to the episode. For anyone creatively-inclined who wants to learn more about pitching their stories I found this post pretty interesting/insightful
