Greetings, Robot Army!
Yesterday I assembled four amazing authors to the Angry Robot orbital platform for a discussion of long-term world domination planning.
Oh, how silly of me. That was the other meeting. What I meant to say is that we were talking about Series Writing - how to do it, why so many writers work in series, and how to make each work in a series stand on its own and/or build a larger story.
You can watch (or re-watch) the video here:
Thanks so much to everyone who tuned in! Please keep an eye on the blog here for news of Angry Robot Live! #4, coming soon to an internet near you.
We’d love to carry on the conversation here int he comments: what are some of your favorite series (Angry Robot and otherwise). What do you love about series? What kinds of series do you prefer – serial, episodic, somewhere in the middle?
Hello, all! Mike here, with news of our third Angry Robot Live! panel.
On Wednesday, at 11:30AM PDT/2:30PM EDT/7:30PM BST, we’re going to be talking about series writing (how to do it, why to do it, how not to do it), with four fantastic Angry Robot authors:
Adam Christopher, Sir Julius Vogel-award-winner and author of Empire State, The Age Atomic, Seven Wonders, Hang Wire, and others.
Anne Lyle, Syndey J. Bounds-nominated author of The Alchemist of Souls, The Merchant of Dreams, and The Prince of Lies.
Carrie Patel, author of the forthcoming The Buried Life and Cities & Thrones.
Chuck Wendig, John W. Campbell-nominated author of Blackbirds, Mockingbird, The Cormorant, The Blue Blazes, and many more.
RSVP for the event here. As before, there will be some prizes for people who ask questions of our illustrious panel. If you won’t be able to join us for the hangout, you can leave questions here in the comments or on Twitter the day of with the #AngryRobotLive.
Hope to see you on Wednesday for the event!
Today we hosted our second Angry Robot Live hangout, “Crossing the Streams,” focused on cross-genre storytelling and storytelling across multiple media.
If you missed the panel, you can watch it in its entirety here:
I’ve also re-posted some questions we didn’t get to to continue the conversation, and if you have questions inspired by the panel, add them in the comments below!
Thank you all for joining us, and stay tuned to the Angry Robot blog for future Angry Robot Live announcements!
How do each of you use ‘place’ as character in your writing and how much does ‘place’ influence your writing? (Apologies if this has already been asked.)
(Tuned in late, so apologies if this has already been asked.) In cross-genre work, how much preexisting familiarity with the involved genres do you assume in the reader? Are there minima and maxima in this?
We’ll be hosting our second Angry Robot Live panel tomorrow, at 8:00 AM EDT, 1PM BST, 10PM EAST.
If you have questions about cross-genre writing or any of these authors works that you’d like me to ask at the panel, please comment below. And be on the lookout for the link to join the discussion live on Thursday the 22nd
For those who won’t be able to attend live, we’ll record the panel to be uploaded to YouTube, as well as archiving it on Google+ for viewing for years to come.
And you can join discussion on Twitter with the hashtag #AngryRobotLive
I hope you’ll join us for the conversation! Anyone who asks a question will be entered to win a copy of the panelist’s books and other Angry Robot prizes!
