Episode 44: How to Write Middles for Fiction

Show Notes for Episode 44: How to Write Middles for Fiction

If the beginning is the most intimidating the middle is the slog, the quicksand, the Wall that runners hit.  What do I include is still in question.  What happens with the conflicts?  Where did my steam go?  Why am I STUCK?

This week Holly and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) go over what differentiates weak middles from strong ones and how you can dissect your own.  We provide from-scratch examples as well as discuss previous works, using these as case studies.

Most every writer on the planet has hit that Middle Mountain.  Do you have a better name for it?  Please share.  Until then, have a look at what Holly has to say about not just fixing the problem, but getting excited and having fun diving into that middle!
