Your Hosts: Brandon, Victoria, Dan, and Howard
Small evils? Yes, please! This episode isn’t about writing the big villainy of world domination, but about focusing on the more relatable villainy of small evils—the little crimes, the minor antagonisms—which can be the key to connecting the reader to the book.
Liner Notes: The deadly nightshade incident Howard described is something he mentioned on Twitter as well. If you need a concrete example of a small evil and/or an external cost, there it is!
Credits: This episode was recorded by Dan Thompson, and mastered by Alex Jackson
