There’s been some progress finally!
I’ve all but finished the fifth episode and I’m already planning sketches for the sixth episode. I’m planning them on individual A4 sheets blu-tacked (other adhesive putties are available) onto my wall, which I’m writing on with sharpie. Except the sharpie has almost soaked through to my wall, so I’m buying a whiteboard. I’m not sure what it is about a whiteboard, but somehow having a whiteboard in my room will make me feel so much more in control and able to plan stuff well. Let’s be honest- for most sketches I just write down random jokes and try to work stuff in without a proper idea of what’s happening. Also I’ll feel so much more like an actual comedy writer (and less like a jumped up 16 year old) with a whiteboard; all the writers’ rooms I’ve ever seen or been in have a whiteboard somewhere.
However, I have come across a slight hurdle, and that is publicising the podcast. There’s this blog, which I hope people are looking at (although the statistics tell me otherwise) but other than that (apart from telling my friends) there’s not much else I can do. If anyone has any ideas as to how to actually publicise a podcast, feel free (that means please I’m begging you) to comment below. Also, if you do happen to stumble onto this website, please do recommend it/suggest it to your friends! It makes the difference between having 1 person (i.e. my mum) listening to my podcast to as many people as possible checking it out.
