Award winning crime writer Keith Wright takes you through passages of his books and explains why he wrote it in that way. I mean, it wasn’t by accident, so why like that? Every word counts. Relax and enjoy the passages he reads and listen in; you may just pick up a theme that you want to play with when you write your crime novel. This is your book, nobody is going to write it but you. Nobody else can. You own it. This podcast may just take some of the pain away and give you some confidence at the same time.
Techniques to sum up the plot to a reader. How to use body language in descriptions to subliminally send a message to the reader. How descriptions can give texture, give context, send a message and segue into another style such as dialogue. The flow of the story is key.
In this episode we talk about how new writers approach their first book. We dissect a short passage of 13 lines of one of my books and examine what is conveyed to the reader subliminally and otherwise.
I’ve been lucky to get great advice from top people in the publishing world and authors too over the years.
I would like to pass some of that forward to new writers and talk about storytelling.
