In this week’s new Writing Excuses episode, Elemental Drama as a Sub-Genre, the Writing Excuses crew turns their focus on elemental drama. This can be tricky as it’s basically “character change,” and a great many stories use character change in some way—it’s almost ubiquitous. In this episode they pick at the ubiquity, and look at the many different ways in which character change can be featured, and what sort of tools writers have at their disposal to make this happen in stories.
