S41E2 – Writing Emotions: Courage

Courage is one of the niche emotions that nearly every book will contain regardless of genre, age group or tropes. Protagonists especially will have a moment when they need to be courageous despite their circumstances. This emotion, however, is often misunderstood and misapplied to writing.

Fear is not the opposite. Courage is best represented by action despite fear. In this episode, we talk about courage, what it looks like in writing, and how you can use it in any genre to help progress a story and develop your characters.

First aired March 6, 2023.
