Writing about big things by going smaller
Really really helpful. I revamped and wrote a bowl of cheerios in my opening scene. The bowl that my main character never finished. Because… soggy cereal. It’s insignificant. Totally unimportant to the BIG THING but that’s the point. We all know soggy cereal.
Those costumes! Perfect description.
Brilliant, thank you !
Perfect! Thanks for writing about this. I feel all what you say. I’m working with this and know that I Hate lecturing and if I’m just hammering on all the stuff, people are going to hate it. Have you read migrations by Charlotte mcconaghy? It’s my favorite so far of the climate stuff. It’s emotional and totally gripping. She’s a great storyteller. She wrote a new book as well about wolves I haven’t read yet.
