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!
