The Method Writing Technique
In today’s Books with Hooks, Carly and CeCe critique three submissions, in the process discussing intentionality with regards to timelines; how novels with certain types of themes need to get 'messy'; the importance of specificity; showing rather than telling; and using active emotions.
After which Bianca interviews LaToya Watkins, acclaimed author of the short story anthology Holler, Child. They discuss LaToya's unorthodox road to publication; how changing political and social climates can affect publication; writing 'voicey' stories; using the method writing technique; putting your characters in therapy; viewing your entire literary world through the lens of your characters; and not needing to wrap everything up neatly in endings.
