Ep3 – Brainstorming Stories

Oliver discusses what a short story cycle is in novel form, his initial brainstorming of stories to include in his novel, and reclaiming dry or even dispiriting material from your school days as a source of pleasure later in life.

I mean, *I* think it’d make a great story.

This episode’s listener question comes off of episode two’s discussion of protagonists, with Oliver answering in further detail how Norman Rockwell’s Rosie the Riveter inspired him, and why he’s been drawn to write several protagonists birthed from that inspiration.

Please consider supporting the show on PATREON and BUYING OLIVER’S NOVELS.
