Zabi asked: What makes you decide the length of a fiction? Do you prefer set goals or writing until an arc ends??
Mayanangel asked: How do you plot out your story? In big arcs of “chapter 1, this, this, and that need to happen” or “chapter 1, scene 1, conversation between A and B leads to scene 2″ or something else entirely?
Chestnut Nola asks:
Hi Keira, you’ve talked at length about POV first/third/god, as well as transitioning POV within a scene as opposed to using a scene break.
I’ve only written one story with multiple POV and changed POV in chapter format. I kept the POV the same throughout the chapter, then when I needed to changed the POV in the next chapter I kept that POV throughout. (I hope this makes sense)
What are your thoughts about changing POV via chapter?
Let me just start off by saying that after transcribing writer Sean Ennis' interview (Yeah, I'm back on that again!), I've decided that he's the most conscious self-editor I've interviewed this year.
As soon as the words leave his mouth, he’s already assessed whether it’s actually what he means, whether it’s “a dumb pun” or “too dramatic.” He often doesn’t retract what he says, just adds a disclaimer and keeps going. Somehow, the listener sees actually what he meant initially and what he means now.
The result? An interview that is thoughtful, humble, and personable. Sean's short story collection, Chase Us, fuels our discussion as we meander through the a narrative that is both engaging and mysterious.
In this episode, you'll find out:
- How the people you surround yourself with can help or impede your writing journey
- What one detail can do for an entire story
- What's Sponge Bob Got To Do With It
- The best writing advice Sean ever got
- The rhetorical move that made Sean “wiggle in his seat” when he wrote it
- The "Tom and Jerry Pitch" that landed his agent RENÉE ZUCKERBROT
The “pleasures of a good short story?”
BONUS: This is the first episode that the guest insults me! Listen to find out how. Then, learn something about writing. After, go write.
