DToT #5 – A Time and a Pace for Everything

The fifth podcast of Derailed Trains of Thought:

Is this really it? The fifth episode of Derailed Trains of Thought? Yes, it is!

We apologize for the delay, but we were thrown off our posting rhythm, which, coincidentally, is exactly the topic of this episode’s Story School. We discuss plot pacing, dramatic rhythm, forward momentum, and all those things that accentuate the story’s individual moments.

We also introduce two new segments called Listener Feedback and A Bit of Story; Muppet-obsessed Timothy Deal educates us on long-lost Henson products; and Nick Hayden peeks into China’s underground church.

It’s all in a day’s podcast for Derailed Trains of Thought.

SPECIAL NOTICE: This episode does not include a single reference to Star Wars. It does, however, manage to talk about Lost, so Nick and Tim are vindicated.
