No new podcasts this week due to Real Life events, so here’s a rewind on our most popular episodes.
Elmore Leonard’s “10 Rules for Good Writing” may be better than Stephen King’s “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft.” Link
We talk about jumping In Media Res (“in the middle”) of the action in your favorite books and movies. Prime examples discussed include Georgette Heyer’s Friday’s Child, Dumas’ The Three Musketeers, and basically every James Bond movie. Link
Traveling the tried and true path of Formula Fiction, and why we the people may complain about reboots, yet we’re drawn to the same old formulas in books and movies. Link
We writers love to create and shape the Universe within our books, and we use two of our favorite movies that show the rewards and risks of going too far. Link
Writers are Bruce Wayne by day and Batman by night. This podcast was fun because we got hit by an earthquake during the recording. Link
What also didn’t happen this week: no new Patreon podcasts. I still encourage to you to listen to my ongoing series on creating my book.
These podcasts are unlocked and free at all. Enjoy! TIA & LYL!
