Buttercup of Doom is a weekly podcast hosted by Kelli Owen and brought to you by Project iRadio. Everyone else is doing reviews and news and genre-based things, and Kelli’s never been very good at following the crowd. So each week Kelli will offer writing advice, share a smile, rant about society or social media, toss a bit of gypsy wisdom out there, and occasionally have guests. There will be highs. There will be lows. There may be swearing (you’ve been warned). There might be cookies.

    You keep asking for comments on the show, so I figure I’ll stop procrastinating and give you a few:
    1. Really enjoy the show. I hope it continues for a long time. I have personal interest, being a horror writer, but also find it to be smart and funny, while not sounding scripted. I don’t agree with everything you say, but that’s okay because there would be no thinking involved if I did.
    2. I despise Nicole Arbour and did before the fat thing, but I still like the “funnies” recommendation. (P.S. Have you seen the Shia LeBouef interpretive dance thing? Now, that’s hilarious!)
    3. I totally dig the writing tips. Being a writer myself (not in the kiddy pool, more like filling up my bathroom sink with water and playing in it), they’re super beneficial.

    Okay, now that I’ve left a few comments, I won’t have to feel guilty next time you ask for them. Thanks for the fun show!

    • Kelli says:

      you should know, this made me laugh. thank you! =)

      so… while filling up your bathroom sink, are there any special rubber ducks you’d like to discuss (wow, the metaphors!)?

      • Angela Bodine says:

        Ha! Hmmm…

        Well, I might have a few ducks:
        1: always curious how other writers strengthen their personal writing weaknesses. Mine is dialogue and “showing versus telling”
        2. I love to hear things going on in the industry. And pretend like I’m part of it.
        3. How do you handle people who don’t “get” horror? Sometimes people seem excited when I tell them I write, then disappointed when I tell them I write horror. What would you respond?

        That’s all the ducks that’ll fit in my little sink for now :)

  • Angela Bodine says:

    Roll call: raises hand.
    Still listening! I enjoyed this episode. :)

  • Ben Sparkman says:

    I listened last week. I still like the rants even though they went from rated R to pg-13.

  • Dan Myers says:

    I listened to the edited version of the show from the Periscope taping the other day and wanted to expand on the topic of best of lists. If not for one of your colleagues (initials B.K. ) best books of the year read, I may never have heard of authors Carlton Mellick III, Bryan Smith and yourself. B.K.’s collaboration with Nick Mamatas also won Mr. Mamatas a fan here. So see? Best of lists of successful artists can be helpful in winning struggling artists new fans.

    • Kelli says:

      I agree they can be helpful, but they can also be incomplete, rushed, and sometimes, just wrong… but i’m glad you found good things on them!!!

Thoughts? Tell me what you think...
