Authors can always be served by returning to the basics of writing. We spend so much time focusing on the grand scale of books – plot, themes, sequels – that the simple pieces of writing which make a story stand out can be lost. This month, Writing Roots is focusing on the nitty gritty, from writing dialogue and humor to developing character voice.
Not every story has to be a tale of good versus evil, or a moral tale reminiscent of Aesop’s Fables. There are a lot of different ideas that can make the basis for a story. In this episode we talk about and share examples of stories that aren’t always good versus evil, including chaos versus law and nature versus technology.
