Logistics: No video for Talking Text.

In my haste to lay the groundwork for the podcast as the year comes to an end, I have been recording tests to see if it would be possible to do a video podcast version of Talking Text simultaneously. Video has been a big part of my life, and since I was an actor in college who craved the spotlight once upon a time, I figured, what the hell? I’ll try the full camera setup to see if there’s a bit of that yearning for that sweet limelight.

It felt awful. I’ve been out of the acting game far too long.

In many ways, most of that stage-domineering persona has atrophied. It’s still in there somewhere, but at this time, I guess there’s other areas I’m looking to beef up on. Focus on the voice, Jaime. That eagerness to get the ball rolling. The thing you really want to get to know about yourself: The jumpstart. Re-learn how to reach out to fellow creatives to spark story, discovery and possibility. The audio version of Talking Text will do that just fine.

I have always been much more comfortable behind the camera (or the pen), and since Talking Text is supposed to be a jolly old time I will keep it low-key for now, so NO concurrent video podcasts will be produced at this time. Sounds good to me! I know absolutely nobody cares about these dilemmas, and that’s cool, but I find that if I’m going to be honest with myself about my process, as well as being open about starting something from scratch and following through, it will be best if I jot down the journey for self-evaluation later. It’s all about getting better.

So here it is. Step one.

Writers should just stay behind the camera.
