This week, Janet Morris and Chris Morris – authors of The Sacred Band of Stepsons series, “I, the Sun“, and the Heroes in Hell series, and so much more – return to the Big Chairs at the Roundtable to infuse our story brainstorming with their incredible writing mojo. Joined by my co-host, the eloquent and insightful Michael R. Underwood ( “The Younger Gods“, “Shield and Crocus“, “Geekomancy” and more), this can only be described as a Master Class Story Workshop.
Our “creageous” Guest Writer (both creative AND courageous) for this episode is Melissa L. Hayden, curator and evil genius at the “My World in Words and Pages” blog. Melissa brings a tale of patricide and political upheaval in a land of dragons and ancient magic… a veritable buffet of story goodness. As the workshop unfolds, Janet, Chris, and Michael explore unexpected and startling paths of insight and inquiry, teasing out some potent thematic, character, and story elements.
To say that Literary Gold abounds would be an understatement… this is one of the finest literary workshops in which I’ve had the pleasure of participating. Click the “Play” button, sit back, and let the muse inspire you. (and if you haven’t tuned in to Janet and Chris’s Showcase Episode, then that’s you’re next stop for writerly awesomeness).
