We’ve completed and published a novel (Pop Culture Sucks, Manifesto Of A Vampire), then revamped and re-released a novel (the much shinier Pop Culture Sucks, Manifesto Of A Vampire!), and published eight free e-series short stories entitled Everything Sucks (the first of which is HERE) which expands on the world created in the novel. All of which can be found on R. Smith’s Smashwords page (HERE) in all major e-book platforms.
These shorts, plus some new previously unreleased shorts, will soon be released as the Everything Sucks Anthology. (Scheduled to release in February or March of 2014.)
Anyway, Smith wrote an article today on Team Pop Culture’s blog digging deep into our creative process and giving away secrets, so I figured I’d pass along the link. If you adjust it to a night owl’s schedule, and substitute the wine for vodka, you pretty much have MY schedule. It’s scary.
BEHIND THE CURTAIN, by R. Smith
A QUICK LOOK AT HOW TEAM POP CULTURE (actually) WORKS
7:00 a.m. to ?:00 a.m. Coffee
Later-than-planned ?:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Work while mentally restructuring the day’s work plan at least twice.
11:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Realize you left something off the list, bump it to tomorrow.
12:45 p.m. to 1:55 p.m. Type while stuffing lunch in face.
1:55 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Write/re-write/curse existence of the same paragraph over and over again.
2:30 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. Resist urge to pour a glass of wine.
2:40 p.m. Fail.
Art the world, in any way you can people!
