FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
In Short Fiction I discuss why fairytales fit a short story format so well and what fairytales and other short stories have in common. One thing I forgot to put on is that both fairytales and other short stories should have a strong emotional response on your readers.
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
In Legacies, I look at legacies in terms of the impact characters have on your story, other characters and so on. I discuss Roald Dahl’s legacy briefly (I could have written much more about that!).
I discuss Roald Dahl in more detail here and share the YouTube clip of the opening and closing credits for his Tales of the Unexpected. I also list some of my favourite Dahl stories.
