The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 51 – Dialogue

“The sea was angry that day my friends, like an old man trying to return soup at a deli,” George said. 

Dialogue.

When it’s good it propels the story to another level. When it’s off it takes the reader out of the story. 

He said/she said. 

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda give their own opinions on letting characters have a conversation in a story and what they like or dislike about the process, what they read and whatever else they feel about it.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 45 – Plotters Vs. Pantsers

Plotters Vs. Pansters. The age-old debate. 

What are they?

Definition stolen from Chuck Wendig, a reformed pantser: “If you aren’t familiar with the definition ? a “pantser” writes without doing outlines or other prep-work, while a “plotter” tends to outline and perform other preliminary planning efforts before diving into the book. Good? Golden”

What does this have to do with The Mando Method Podcast and co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda? 

Besides a gratuitous mentioning Chuck Wendig in our description, it has to do with the way they both write. 

Where do you stand on this hot-button issue?

Listen in and choose your side.

Let’s face it, these two are hard to teach. Am I right?
