I recently filmed a video as part of my involvement with the South Gate Creative Writing School here in Denmark (link). In the video, I talk briefly about writing pitfalls, and I figured I’d share the full, unedited version here in case it might be of interest to anyone else. For the final version, check out the school’s youtube here.
I talk about three pitfalls that I myself am consistently guilty of:
1) Lacking character agency
2) Not setting the scene right
3) Not keeping the emotional dominoes in order (I’ll thank @Natalie_Crown for teaching me this one!)
