"Save the Cat" Beat Sheet (Moana, Again)

3/1/2020
Last time we talked about the classic story structure, The Hero's Journey. Today, we're talking about a more modern structure: the Beat Sheet. We'll be using Jessica Brody's book "Save the Cat Writes a Novel" (which every author should have on their shelf).

The Hero's Journey (Moana)

2/2/2020
We've all heard of the Hero's Journey, one of the most classic forms of story structure. But let's take a look at it anyway. Today's case study will be Moana. This is part one of a three-part podcast series on story structure. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/dzamarie)

Writing Antiheroes (Thank You For Smoking)

1/28/2020
For my first podcast episode, we'll look at how to write a literary antihero, some common issues, and a case study of one of my favorites: Nick Naylor from Thank You for Smoking. Although honestly, he might have to take a back seat. I only just now started watching The Good Place. Holy hell.
