A Talk Show For Writers: Survey and get to the point!

Postby The_Mad_Ink3r » Mon Jul 21, 2014 6:38 pm

Hello,

I know it's been a while since I've posted; I've been busy. I have accomplished a few new things since
the last time I've been on here. Also, I just finished celebrating the life of my first unborn child (baby shower),
and everything was great: the food, the drinks, the music, the gifts, etc. But let's get to the point. I've been
working on an idea for all of the writers out there; aspiring and established. I'm not going to be putting out
the log line and synopsis/ Treatment in this post, but I'm more focused on the name for the show. So my
question for y'all has everything to with writers, crafting, ideas, experience, accomplishment, knowledge, etc.
I have listed below three (3) names that I came up with. Please, all I'm asking is that you just choose a name that
sounds appealing to you. Again, my log line and synopsis/treatment will be posted for your feedback very soon!

A. Conquering Red Ink
B. Writer's Defiance
C. Creative Denotation


Keep your post positive, and if you want to suggest something added onto what I have chosen, please feel free to do so. Remember this would be a talk show for aspiring and already established writers/authors. I think we deserve a talk show that we can all enjoy, daily. This project is for the year 2015-16. Keep a look out for my next post on what the talk show will consist of, and many other treats!

Thanks,
The_Mad_Ink3R

more info would help:

a talk show for what?... tv?... radio?... the net?

are you going to produce it?... host it?... or what?

why do you think you'd need a 'logline and synopsis/treatment' for a talk show?

as for the suggested titles, none of them say 'talk show' to me...

sounds like an ambitious project... but one that will be quite costly to produce, unless you're going the youtube route... but if it's to be d-i-y video, how will you get the guests?... won't they all have to be living nearby, which would be pretty limiting [unless you're in NYC or LA]?

how do you expect to get it on tv?... do you have the backing of or connections to network or cable bigwigs?... or is it intended for a local free-access station?

My questions:
what's the point of a talk show for writers?

After the initial few shows on how to write the great novel, and get published, what is left to talk about?

Seriously, I cannot imagine such a show. A series of workshops, I can see those, but talk shows?

How would these shows make money? How much advertising would a daily Writer's talk show need to cover costs? Even a weekly show would cost a fortune, unless the accomplished Novelists did the show free-gratis, and I can't see that happening either.

Interesting... :)

Brandon Sanderson and friends do a podcast/youtube video series called Writing Excuses, and it's quite popular.
