Episode 121 — Writing Technique Discussion Based on Lev Grossman’s The Magicians

The Magicians

Join us over at Speculate’s Patreon page for a discussion of writing technique, where Greg and Brad use Lev Grossman‘s The Magicians to discuss topics such as pacing vis-à-vis word count, set pieces and how to use them, how and how much to codify magic, the dialogue authors can have with other works, the relatability of your characters to readers, and authorial intent vs. reader response.

This is for backers at our $5 level, but remember, if you DO join us, you’ll get access to all the other extras as well like the Good, Bad, and Ugly segments, and other special episodes.
