George Mann; a newer member of Project Luminous (The High Republic) and writer of Wychwood and Newbury & Hobbes is this week’s guest, to talk about writing science fiction, mythology, Star Wars and more!
In more detail, George explains the start of his career into writing and the influences & lessons along the way, how he puts a book together, how he defines folklore & mythology and why they appeal to him, how “fear” as a concept works, how he writes differently for different ages and “respecting your reader”, the moral grey area of the dark side (in Star Wars), perceptions of the force and more – this is a great listen for any Star Wars fans, bookworms or those interested in writing!
