Ep 82 – Get On With It

This episode the group takes on two topics. First, should books include more inner art? What about your cover? How much of your book should be visual and is it helpful?

Secondly, we discuss stories that take too long getting to the point and talk about ways to make your story get to the point.

Ep 81 – Character Agency

Are your characters failing to make decisions? Is your plot telling everyone how it’s going to be? Are your climaxes failing to have impact? If you answered yes to any of these, maybe it’s time to double check the agency in your story.
Character agency is a fundamental many writers forget to include in their stories. Learn about what it is and how to use it in this episode.
