16.37: Deep Dive Into “Inquiry”
Your Hosts: Dan Wells, C.L. Polk, Charlotte Forfieh, and Mary Robinette Kowal
Our third M.I.C.E. Quotient episode asks about the “Inquiry” element, and the ways in which we can use this element to structure our stories—whether we’re writing murder mysteries, thrillers, or anything else in which the turning of pages asks and eventually answers questions.
Credits: This episode was recorded by Marshall Carr, Jr., and mastered by Alex Jackson.
Homework: Use the same fairy tale as last week, and strip out every element that is not Inquiry.
Thing of the week: Even Though I Knew the End, by C.L. Polk (a noir fantasy novella available in 2022).
