Thinking About Starting a YouTube Channel Devoted To Storytelling

by Shelt Garner

I have the equipment to do a YouTube channel, but, to date, I haven’t thought up what it would be used for. But given how many videos I’ve done about the novel I’m working on — and how much reading on the subject I’m beginning to do — I think maybe that’s the answer: do a YouTube channel on storytelling.

So, I think over the course of the next few days I’m going to begin to plot out my next move. I would have to give some thought to what the best practices are on the matter. YouTube people are pretty brutal — more so than even Periscope people — so I would have to be very careful so as not to make a fool out of myself. I do that all the time, anyway, no reason to make the situation worse.

But I definitely have a lot to say on the subject. The only thing that’s changed is I’m beginning to read so much that I’m accidentally turning myself into a self-taught expert on the subject. Or, I will be by the time I finish reading on the books on storytelling I’ve bought over the last few months.

Anyway, I love to talk and a YouTube channel seems to be perfect for filling up a little extra time. One thing slowing me down is figuring out what best practices for the channel would be. How long should each episode be, extra.

One thing I have to do, however, is speed up the process of actually wrapping up development on the novel I’m working on. I’m getting nervous it’ll be three years from now and I’ll STILL not be done with it.

This is not A Confederacy Of Dunces. It’s not literary in any way. It’s not like my sister can take up the drive to get it published after my death and finally succeed 11 years later.

This needs to be published now — or never.

YouTube Has A Real ‘Red Pill’ Video Problem

One of the biggest threats to the Republic outside of fucking MAGA is its ideological nasty little brother the “Red Pill” video that I keep getting bombarded with on YouTube. I guess some of the research I’m doing for the novel I’m developing makes YouTube think I’m a would-be incel-altRight-MAGA friendly or something. Fuck that.

I hate all that bullshit and I hate that I keep seeing these videos by Scott Adams acolytes that vaguely and barely hide their racism and misogyny in the guise of telling me the “truth” about the things the evil main stream media is trying to hide from me because of the influence of SJWs and “woke” “cancel culture.”


I have some very, very strong political views. A lot of my political views probably would not fair well in the eyes of “woke” blue check liberals on Twitter. But my hatred for MAGA is so absolute that I’m willing to endure the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune from the Left simply for the sake of having someone to help me destroy MAGA as a political and social movement.

It’s somewhat amusing how passionate these Red Pill videos are about how Kathleen Kennedy is the George Soros of Hollywood out to crush Baby Yoda or whatever other fuckwit theory.

I’m not a huge fan of Ms. Kennedy, but, come on guys. Your misogyny is showing.
