Welcome to the Bite Size Edition of the Editor Roundtable Podcast. Here on the Roundtable we’re dedicated to helping you become a better writer, following the Story Grid method developed by Shawn Coyne. In these episodes we bring you some shorter solo articles and interviews on topics that interest us as writers.
This is Kim Kessler, and today I’m bringing you Vetting Your Book Idea: Is It Worth Writing
This is the first Fundamental Fridays post I wrote and it’s all about how you can use the Editor’s Six Core Questions as a way to vet your story concept before you ever write a word.
This coming season, I’m going to be using the Six Core Questions as a jumping off point to study my topic–Stories That Don’t Work–so I thought it’d be fun to revisit what they are, what they do, and how we can leverage them at any point in the writing process.
So join me for a quick bite of writing insight, starting right now.
