This is the first of a three-part series in which Brandon, Dan, and Howard tell each other (and you, of course) about the most important thing each of them has learned in the past year. We start with Howard, who seems to believe that of all the many things he’s learned about writing in the previous twelve months, the list-topper should be the fact that he is a satirist.
So really the episode is about satire, and how that form differs from other humorous sub-genres. And then we talk about why knowing this is important, and how others can go about learning these sorts of things about their own work.
This week Writing Excuses is brought to you by “Bringing Writing Excuses To You By!”
Writing Prompt: An artist finds a way to improve or perfect the form he or she is working within, and by so doing unlocks magic.
