Part of why we’ve taken this whole month to introduce you to the writing skills involved in various kinds of storytelling is because all of those skills can be useful while writing any story.

It also applies for taking a story written originally for one medium, and translating it to another. The Witcher is a great example of this, going from books to games to a TV series.
Hosts Leigh and Ley take a look at why you should know how to use these different mediums in order to determine which one works best for your story in the end, or if maybe you need to use multiple.
