A microcast is our word for an asynchronous Q&A episode: you ask us tons of questions online, either through twitter or facebook or our listenermail account (on the sidebar), and we want to answer as many of them as we can. Not every answer can fill an entire episode, though, so we take the smaller ones and cover a bunch of them at once in a microcast. This week we take a brief, pithy look at the following:
- Prologues and epilogues
- Using drawings to get across settings
- Simple tricks for naming things
- Would you self publish if you had a do over?
- How do you keep a powerful character interesting?
