You guys know I don't write, but I still love to look at things critically and understand how things work and someone on tumblr linked me to this and I thought it would be an useful resource for all the writers on here, especially the ones trying to make into the next Thursday Tales anthology.
The bit I was linked to was this excellent first meet scene analysis, which talks about introducing characters and creating a connection. (Because I've fallen down the Arrow rabbit hole I don't think I'll be getting out soon. *sigh*)
On Theme, Premise and Central Story Question. There's also Sherlock and Doctor Who stuff, and the blog writer apparently goes here. I've never heard of Jennifer Crusie* (nor read anything by her) but I think she is also a creative writing teacher. And all of this is fascinating to me, so I imagine it's all very useful to someone who can put it to use.
*say hi if you're around!
