Episode 115 of Speculate! — Writing Technique Discussion Based on Ann Leckie’s Ancillary Justice


Episode 115 is the last in our triptych of shows based on Ann Leckie’s incredible debut novel, Ancillary Justice. This episode is for our Patreon supporters at the $5 level.

In the episode we discuss building your technique before tackling a major project, how to convey emotion, tension and pacing, the use of parallel timelines, alternatives in choices of protagonists, using historical cultures as a template for your own work, and more.

If you’re already a supporter, we thank you and ask that if there are others you think might enjoy this episode that you please spread the word about our Patreon so that they can access it (and future writing technique shows) as well. We’d love for these episodes to reach as many people as possible.
