How’s it going? I finally got my head out of my you-know-where and started doing videos about some things that I cover here at Fiction and Copy Decoded (one of which you can feel free to watch over here).
Yes, I’m trend-hopping (something I almost never do). I watched a video on this geared toward salespeople about prospecting for clients, and I thought it would help.
Wanna know a secret? Shooting videos and live-streams are difficult for me because I’m really, really introverted. But it’s even more difficult for me for a different reason, and that is…
I hate hearing myself talk on recordings. It’s just really weird to me, because my voice sounds different, and I pick up on all kinds of idiosyncrasies on video especially that I wish I could edit out.
But nothing is perfect–not even in fiction and copy, where writers get to make (and break) a lot of the rules. The principles that go into great fiction and copy still have their place in video, too. 🙂
Anyhow, I’ll probably eventually have to set up a Youtube channel and Vimeo account to increase my reach, but for right now, I think things will be all right.
And at least three days a week, barring time off, I’ll still write to you about things I’ve discovered, things I’m working on, and what-have-ya.
How about you? Do you write and shoot video online? Is it difficult or easy? Drop me a line in the comments and let me know.
Tomorrow is Triple F. Be sure to swing by.
Until next time,
