Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary Robinette, and Dan, with Shannon and Dean Hale
Shannon and Dean Hale join us to discuss how to effectively and convincingly write about¹ children. We cover dialog tools, point-of-view elements, stakes, and character ‘quirks’ that can help signal to the reader that a character is a child.
Credits: This episode was recorded by Joseph Meacham, and mastered by Alex Jackson
¹ “About,” not “for.” Shannon and Dean join us again to discuss writing FOR children next week!
Take a story about adults and write a synopsis of how it would go if it were about kids. Like, DIE HARD might become HOME ALONE…
