Wherein we present a round-table discussion about the middles of novels (and stories), which are often the most frustrating to writers, where one is beset by the Dark Night of Despair. Join Liars Club members Kelly Simmons, Jon McGoran, Merry Jones, Keith Strunk, and me as once again we try to save the world (of writing).
This week on the Oddcast, the wonderful novelist and short story writer Karen Joy Fowler, author of works such as The Jane Austen Book Club and the PEN/Faulkner Award winning novel We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, discusses her writing career, how and why she came to literature of the fantastic first, a writing process of creating the outline last, and wisdom received from other authors she has known. A great, delightful interview with the amazing Ms. Fowler.
That Terrible Mind, author Chuck Wendig, with 20 novels under his belt in just 7 years (he doesn’t sleep), joins the Oddcast crew to talk about writing thrillers, blogs, Star Wars tie-in books, games, books on writing, and more. A laugh-out-loud interview this week on the Liars Club Oddcast.
