Worlds in Characters

By Anthony L. Wolf
Games, films, books, music, feeling hungry and opening the fridge looking for a slice of your favourite cake… All of these have one thing in common: stories.

Hello everyone and welcome to my writing podcast! I’m Antonino (or Anthony, if it sounds easier) and, as you can guess, I’m not a native English speaker. I’m also a writer and editor, which means I have my own unique slice of language challenges to overcome.

If you can bear listening to my weird accent, I will offer you guys insights into the life of an obsessed storytelling maniac with too many interests. In around 10 minutes.

E9: How to bring your personality into your stories... And why that matters
Many writers tend to be afraid to put their personality into a story. In truth, that is the single thing that makes the difference between a conscious writer and someone who's still developing a voice. Here's why letting go will make your stories even more relatable.

Stories are like houses. You'll hear that metaphor a lot. But stories aren't just rigid structures you can plan, build and then hope they will stay up by themselves. Stories are subject to change. Just like every human being. Follow me on this new episode of Worlds in Characters, in which I try and explain (pretty badly) the delicate mechanism of writing stories.
