In this first episode of The Paragraphing Podcast, writers (and brothers) Brendan and Jamie Steidle begin where the story begins—with the first nine paragraphs. The premise of the podcast is simple: each day, one of them writes a new paragraph of the story. Each week on the podcast, the brothers read their latest paragraphs and then discuss the writing process, their thoughts on where the story has gone, and where it might go next.
Topics in this episode include the role of wordplay, an appreciation of metaphor in Alice in Wonderland, writing with invented words, how Shakespeare might react to a modern spell check, P.G. Wodehouse, and the always-insightful Charlie Rose.
