“In Hadrian’s Flight you separated your action and character climax. How did you decide to do this?”
“I’m obsessed with a project that’s not working, and it’s getting in my way. What do I do?”
“How can I differentiate my character voices when both characters have similar jobs and backgrounds?”
“What are the differences between crime stories, cozies, thrillers, and true mysteries?”
Also, I have an update on my Nanowrimo progress
“I wrote in a shared world and want to spin my own series off it. Should I use a psuedonym? What are my other options?”
“Should authors be bold or reticent when it comes to politics in fiction? How does this relate to Military SF?”
“What are some non-obvious ways to elegantly switch the narrative point of view, and between first and third person?”
Today, I talk about the Character Climax in Hadrian’s Flight, the denouement, and the experience of finishing up my first ever successful attempt to write a Heinlein Juvenile. Interesting revelations about the nature of creativity and young adult literature ensue.
This marks the final episode in this series of specials–do send in any questions it spawned for you!
