It's all about Youtube!
Do you like watching YouTube videos? I hope so. I know I do, and I've always dreamed of making them since I was a child and would watch the original wave of vloggers. Wow, I just dated myself.
But in all seriousness, I struggle to write these blogs, but I love talking, watching videos, and teaching people how to improve their writing, worldbuilding, and discussing theories. All things people love to do on YouTube, so that's what we're doing.
The goal is to launch our first set of videos in August 2021. I'm so excited. So there will be five basic types of videos.
Writing/Worldbuilding How-tos. I have a lot of writer friends who tell me I'm really good at helping them get through writing blocks and world-building struggles, and I'd love nothing more than to help others do it. If I couldn't stand the schooling it would take to teach and I'd have to do teach more than creative writing, I'd become a creative writing teacher in a heartbeat. And Youtube provides an outlet to do just that. What kinds of things do you struggle with or have questions about? Post them in the comments and I'll do a video on it.
Storytelling as Taught by... So this section is where I'd break down a popular movie, TV show, or perhaps even actual books and break down what we learn to do and often learn not to do from these pieces. I'm super excited about this one because it lets us talk fan theories, storytelling, worldbuilding, and more through mediums I love. This is what I do with my author friends for fun. So I can't wait to do it with you all on youtube.
Behind the Lore This one I'm really excited about. Not all the lore and details get to go inside of the book sometimes, but I'm often dying to share it with you. But I talk better than I write when it comes to doing short explanations. If i write it, I have to make another novel, and I have too many tasks to tackle to be able to do that, so now and then, I'll do a video about some bit of lore I wasn't able to share in the books.
Theories Along with the world-building teaching, I also will post, now and then, my game, movie, TV, and book theories. This will be a more rare video, but every now and then, I have a bone to pick on some fan theorize out there.
Gaming This ties into theories, but I love playing video games, and my friends love coming over and watching. If they love it, why wouldn't you all? So sometimes I'll just play as me, and sometimes I'll even play as different characters, showing reactions of some of my characters as I picture them going through the game. It should be a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to it. Post in the comments the kinds of games you'd like to see me play. They will need to be on Switch, PS5, or PC to be considered. The switch is my preference.
I hope that gets you all excited. Please, please, please, post in the comments or on social media what kind of content you'd like to see from me.
