Welcome to The Story Well. It’s a place where storytellers of all stripes can take a rest from their mental labor and listen as we discuss both art and craft. There’s always a seat open for you.
Tonight, we welcome author Ryan Dalton. His new book, This Last Adventure, is available now from the finest of book sellers. Our topic is “Plants or Pants”, is it better to have your story planned out before you start writing or is it better to just sit down and let the story go wherever it takes you? We’ll discuss what we’ve learned doing it both ways.
And before I let him out the door, Ryan and I decide to take some random elements and see if we can create an interesting story out of them. And we give it away for free to anyone who’d like to take it and run with it.
