This week on Not in my back yarn! we have a very lively and roundabout discussion on the nature of writing and how we, as mere mortals, ever conceive of an interesting story, character or both. We also veer widely into several tangents that, I think, explore some interesting ground such as the tricky, scary world of storytelling in video games (the concept for a future episode perhaps?). Broad in scope, bulging in all the right places, this episode is all about the origins of ideas. Hope you enjoy and as always, have a happy new year!
