Writing Excuses Notes: Blending Ideas

Here are some notes I took after listening to Writing Excuses.

It is an educational podcast that helps novelists/writers.

The topic of blending ideas was from Season 1, Episode 2.


Blending the Familiar and the Original

Fruit Salad, Yummy Yummy.

The Strange Attractor : Taking something mundane and throwing in a twist or strange element.

Keep in mind that juxtaposition can become cliché.

Different audiences want a different ratio between familiar and original.

For some, the extraordinary can be mundane.

Find the right mix and hit your market.

A Quote

David Farland :

“Take one important thing and don’t explain it.
Take an unimportant thing and overly explain it.”
