13.49: How to Finish
Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary Robinette, Amal, and Maurice
Last week we talked about character death. This week we talk about other, less fatal ways in which a character story can be finished, and how we, as writers, can tell when we’re done with a character arc.
Credits: This episode was recorded by Andrew Twiss, and mastered by Alex Jackson.
Homework: You’re about to cut into a cake… and it speaks.
(Note: the phrase “the cake is alive” might qualify as “low-hanging fruit.”)
Thing of the week: This is How You Lose the Time War, by Amal El Mohtar and Max Gladstone
(note: Between the time we recorded and the time this episode aired the publication date was pushed back. The novel is, however, available for pre-order).
