In today’s fresh new podcast, Ryan and I discuss the importance of layering a plot so that it is not simply one dimensional. How do we do this, though, if we don’t have an English degree? There are many ways to layer a plot so that it is much more complex and interesting to a reader, so that the reader will want to read it again and again to find what they missed.
We also discuss Breaking Bad, about how it is probably some of the best writing on television and why, while doing our best for those who haven’t seen it…but should.
