We talk about how to use setting to build characters and add tension to the scene.
We are going to start a newsletter with writing exercises, and also reposting one of out most popular discussions.
We interview Corey White about his book Killing Gravity. We discuss how he landed a contract with a big publisher without an agent and some of the pitfalls fo science fiction.
Kerry Donovan takes fiction writing as seriously as he did his work with scientific articles. Every verb is weighed and measured, and when the work is done he ensures someone else gives the manuscript the same scrutiny so nothing is missed.
In an attempt to expand his reach Kerry submitted to Kindle Scout and we cover all the details of what it means in terms of campaigns, royalties, and rights if you're accepted into the program.
The great strength of the written word is interiority. The ability to get inside of the character’s head, no other medium of storytelling allows for that, there are monologs and voice-overs, but it’s not the same. Only in literature can see the world the way the character sees it, and Lee Isserow is master of interiority.
