Why do we do what we do? As writers, our primary objective is to instill some kind of emotion in the audience regardless of the medium. If you're writing a short film, that short story needs to be packed with a message from start to finish. If you're writing a TV series, little by little that show has to provide a source of entertainment over a long period of time. For a feature film, it's just as pressurized as a short film, only it's technically more difficult because you're relying on the audience to invest two hours (or more) of their time in what you created. Writing a novel? You're in for an even bigger set of responsibilities. At its most simple, storytelling is about evoking an emotional response within the people consuming what you created. How do you do that? Tune in to this episode of Wine Wednesday and listen in on what Felicity and Max think.
