Inside the Mind of Novelist and Screenwriter Edward Savio
Author, screenwriter, and storyteller Edward Savio joins the show to discuss his works and the perspectives that inspired them.
In this episode, you’ll discover:
- What led Savio to write Idiots in the Machine, an anti-screenplay novel (and what rules were broken in the creation of it)
- How Savio (or his characters) view a range of topics, like technology, sustainability, the idea of economic growth, and even interpersonal relationships
- Why Savio has a passion for writing about characters who live in the past, and what type of research he did in the creation of one of his most popular series
“You have to have a kind of determination and a belief that is almost beyond reality,” says Savio, commenting on how he dealt with everyone in his life who, at one point in time, told him he needed a “real” job and shouldn’t pursue a career as a writer.
He shares with listeners the sources of motivation that have led him to become the great writer he is today, and provides insight into some of his main characters. He also discusses some practical differences between the considerations that must be made while writing a novel versus a screenplay, how he’s been able to write a series about time travel without there actually being any time travel involved, human adaptation and evolution, how and why the future will "reveal us to be ignorant," and so much more.
Tune in for a compelling and unique conversation with a brilliant mind and some new ideas for good reading.
