11.19: Fashion for Writers, with Rebecca McKinney
How do we go about describing the clothing our characters are wearing? How do we use that to add depth to our story? What are the common mistakes that writers make when they start dressing their characters?
Rebecca McKinney joined us on stage at LTUE to address all this.
Liner Notes: We mentioned some resources for those wanting to get clothing right in their work:
- Reader’s Digest Complete Guide to Sewing
- Historic Costume for the Stage, by Lucy Barton
- The International Costumers’ Guild
- Fashion Sketchbook, by Bina Abling
Homework: Describe the same outfit from two different point of view characters.
Thing of the week: Bluescreen, by Dan Wells, narrated by Roxanne Hernandez.
