Epenthesis-Episode 010: Action Around Dialogue

Today’s episode was fun to record since I got so excited talking about it. Dialogue is a great tool, but the action around dialogue really brings a scene together. It’s important to know that your dialogue and your actions create two very different effects, and together are like harmonies that can make a scene really shine.

I’ll be in NYC this week but I’m hoping to have my episodes post while I’m gone.

Next Wednesday’s Episode: Episode 011: Filling the Void

Have a wonderful Monday :)

Epenthesis Podcast – Episode 001: Naming

My very first podcast! As such, it is a little sucky, but only a little bit. Hope you enjoy me talking about how I come up with names and how that effects the way your reader thinks about that character throughout your story.

When you build a character from the ground up, the name is the first piece of that character’s foundation. If not the name, the way he or she is referred to. The reader get’s a strong first impression and everything after that molds the way the reader sees that person. So make it an awesome name!
