It's October, the season of Halloween and a time when we fright and delight each other with spooks, scares and things that go bump in the night. In advance of next week's "Ghost Stories" podcast (a yearly tradition), we spend this episode talking about the things that scare us. Rational fears. Irrational fears. The things that make us shudder. The things that make us scream.
Your calls and emails welcome. Scared of something? Email email@example.com
The serpent, or snake, is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols. The word is derived from Latin serpens, a crawling animal or snake. Snakes have been associated with some of the oldest rituals known to humankind and represent dual expression of good and evil.

Write Pack explores writing from fiction based on the headlines. Writing fiction from the headlines is a form of immediate writing. Is it possible to write fiction from the headlines or is this a luxury saved for the TV and Comic book media? Is it possible to do this with other forms of writings?
Do you have to be a superhuman fast writer where you produce 50 books a year? Or is it a crap shoot of timing where you can’t predict it? Do you have to pick a long running trend to be able to write fiction based on the headlines and keep it relevant? For example—murder, bulling, so on…. Or should you be a futurist and focus on science fiction?
Is writing from the headlines really just a form of research? Does it have to be immediate? Can it be too soon?
How do you keep your stories relevant when your story comes out? If it is too soon it might turn off the audience and the writer runs the possible of inaccuracy.
Can you use the headlines to write historical fiction? Mystery? Science Fiction? Fantasy? Real Crime? Other genres?
On the other side of the coin: When do you start to feel like a vulture or a writer version of an ambulance chaser? Can the trends burn out?
Another way to use the headlines is to write a reformation book. Grab a cause and write about it as there is nothing better than passion.
The Write Pack explores the questions about violence in fiction. What is an appropriate level of violence in a story? Of course this all depends on the genre and the story, but when is it over the top? It depends on the unwritten contract between the author and the reader. Does the violence have to be on stage or can it happen in the background? Is the story about violence or does the violence need to reflect the story?
How much violence is needed for the story? Does the violence exist to exist? How does violence move the story forward? How is violence appropriate in the world of the story? What kind of message is the author sending with the violence?
Has the level and focus of violence changed in all the media over the last decade and more? Has the level of violence in Children’s Literature changed?
When does violence kick the reader out of the story? When does violence seem cartoonish?
What kind of violence is never allowed?
Is there typical victims of violence in the story? Do you have Red Shirts or Storm Troopers in your story? Are there certain characters that have to die?
What is the choice of the violence? How does it reflect the character? How does it show their emotions?
How does violence in one story effect other stories in a series or does the series reset?
What is the psychology of violence?
