I Shot Myself (Figuratively)…

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,



About Ty Mall

Thanks for stopping by. I've almost always been interested in writing, among other things. Along with discovering pop culture, I've uncovered a lot about the craft over the past 10 years. And whether you're a fiction writer or email copywriter, I'm here to pass on what I've found out. And have a ton of fun in the process.
