New Podcast Up: Beginning Lines and Ending Hobbits

Podcast CoverIn this end of year podcast we discuss the most important beginning of any novel: the first line. The first line is something that writers like Stephen King spend a month preparing. It is the line that hooks the reader, that sets the tone for the novel, and is a sort of “thesis statement” for your narrative. We also discuss the final Hobbit film, spoiler free of course, and we break down what the Hobbit means to us and what direction Peter Jackson might be taking with the series.

You can find the episode here.

iTunes Users: The podcast may take a bit to upload to iTunes as they have a slow-down in submission until January 5th.  If you want to listen now, however, click on the above link “here”.
