CURIOUS ABOUT SCREENWRITING - PODCASTS

Max Timm's, The WishKeeper Audiobook Serial, Chapters 6 & 7 (ISA Sponsored)

Posted: Jun 14, 2016 Hosted By: Max Timm

A transcript of part of the post-episode breakdown from Max Timm:

 

"So, it's pretty sad when a wish doesn't get granted, right? It was not easy for me to force myself not to dive deep into the entire wishing process and how it works - at least not all at once. During my development of the story, I wrote out tons of explanations as to what the full process of wishing actually is - from inception to granting - and the important elements that are in play in order to keep a wish not only alive, but alive long enough to allow for it to be granted. It was just too boring and a bit like reading an instructional manual when I was all done with the brainstorming and explanation, so I just lightly peppered in little bits of it throughout the book. You'll learn more in upcoming chapters in more of a slow reveal, but if you don't want to wait, I have a tab on the WishKeeper's website called "Anatomy of a Wish" and you can see a lot of what my explanation and instructional manual, so called, included. I also break down each wish with some cool artwork and background.

 

But these are two chapters that are good examples of how exposition can be blended with character development..."
