11.40: Elemental Drama

October 2nd, 2016

Episode 157 of 166 episodes

The word "drama" gets thrown around a lot. What do we mean when we use "drama" as an elemental genre? For us, Elemental Dramafocuses on one character's transformation, and how that transformation affects everyone around them. This isa narrow definition of the word, but it's a very useful way to look at books where the character journey is what has us turning pages. We talk about the tools we use to write these stories, and what kinds of things might trip us up. Credits: this episode was recorded by Jeff Cools, and mastered by Alex Jackson
