I write this as I sit in our “studio,” recording the last video for Myth of the Seeker. I’m squished up against a wall with my laptop on my legs and four of my best friends around me. This is a fun night.
Why would I lose eight weeks of sleep over this independent project? Well, for one, it was a lengthy promotion for my book. But it was so many other things, as well: a chance to exercise my creativity every day, another great step for Funnel Productions, and an incredible experience with some talented and dedicated fans.
There is nothing more invigorating than positive reactions from your audience. They’re an incredible motivator, and Funnel owes our listeners a huge amount of thanks. Yes, we read the message boards, and it was comments like these that not only kept us going, but made each day extra-special:
“Just finished listening, incredibly enjoyable, better than what I listen to on REAL radio.”
“Wow, that was great. … Is it just me, or is Creepy awesome? Sooo my kind of lady…”
“Well written and well performed. This was a wonderful way to start the day.”
“this story is getting way better than I ever expected. “
“This has been a lot of fun. I’m really glad this was my first ARG. It has been quite whimsical, which has made all the difference.”
“Really the writing was superb and the pleasure was ours.”
Snorkle256, FSURobbie, Ifihadahifi, Sheep, Tiffany48, Amandel, and everyone else who played along, the pleasure was at this end. Thank you!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Alternate Reality Games (ARGs), I recommend you check them out. You might find another genre of storytelling that thrills you!
If you’d still like to listen to the radio show, don’t worry! All eight episodes are available to stream online. While you’re there, be sure to check out the fan page, where some incredible fan work has been posted. (and then take a look at From Light to Dark to have more fun in the worlds of the myth!)
And, of course, please let me know your thoughts.
