Making an Indie Radio Comedy Series Part #1

Episode 3 of Space Saga (In Space) is out now for FREE on YouTube, SoundCloud and coming soon to iTunes!

How did Space Saga come about?

It used to be called ‘Space Saga Lol Wow’ and starred all my Uni friends.

I liked writing comedy-adventures with my friends in as a ‘detox’ from whatever my ‘main’ writing project was. So I was steadily practising comedy without realising it…

My partner Gem told me often that these were her favourite pieces of mine. Then one day, my Dad of all people found a chapter of Space Saga and actually laughed.

I hadn’t even considered focusing on comedy until then.

Was it always a Radio Play?

Norman and his Holoccordion by Gem

In all its drafts, Space Saga was a novel. I even wrote 50,000 words of it for National Novel Writing Month.

But I had just spent a year trying and failing to get a children’s book published. I didn’t have the skill-set or budget to publish it or make it into an app on my own. I wanted whatever I wrote next to be something I could make from start to finish.

Quick Laugh: Write a ridiculous Fanfic in 100 words

A silly idea for a writing exercise: write a scene from a fanfic that you absolutely want to be real, in about 100 words.

A man like Squarepants soaked up all sorts of useful information. Unfortunately for him, I was here to wring some truths out of him.

“NO, PLEASE DETECTIVE!” He sobbed as I put my gumshoe through his door. “I’m not in that game anymore!! Not since I lost my partner!”

Ah, yes, dear Patrick. Star of his squad. And now? Sleeping with the fishes. But if Squarepants wouldn’t dish the dirt that was festering in Bikini Bottom, justice would be facing the mightiest rash she had ever seen. I needed Krabs in Bikini Bottom, and to get Krabs… I had to get dirty.
