SSP078 Planning and Thinking Ahead
Scheduling can be a logistical nightmare, especially when planning for a creative endeavor. And it’s no different in our story studio. For years, we’ve struggled with creating a schedule that was forward-looking enough that we could say with any certainty what stories we might release even a year in the future. As the size and nature of our studio have changed, planning is becoming increasingly important, and in today’s episode, we’ll share the why and how of our approach to planning our upcoming days, weeks, and years.
We Talk About:
Dave started watching American Gods, and he’s enjoying it.
Johnny was inspired by Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
How we planned the next few years of our production schedule.
Our issues with scheduling over the years.
The value in “slowing down.”
Foreshadowing with your marketing.
This is a book about how Dave understands darkness, its place in story, and how I make dark fiction that people enjoy reading. And, at its heart, this book isn’t just about the dark, but also the light. And in our darkest times, it’s more important than ever that we hold onto the light. But first, we must be willing to explore the darkness: https://sterlingandstone.net/book/into-the-darkness/
