Justin, I can't ever remember mudding a column, only radius walls in showers. I would do it like you explained, run your sticks vertically and have a plywood jig on a half circle for cutting the mud.

On the first shower I did that had a half circle wall (many moons ago), I soaked my sticks and placed them horizontally. I cut a piece of 3/4 inch thick foam insulation board with the correct radius to set the sticks in the mud. Once set, I drove a nail at the end of the sticks to keep them from popping out. Then I run my straight edge vertically. Kind of a pain so since then I've cut the plywood jig.
