“The Discovery of Theme w/ Kat Karpoff”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
Theme is arguably the most important part of your story but it can be a tricky concept to navigate with. We explore figuring out a theme, keeping perspective on it and how it may take a life of its own.
POINT #1: “HAVE A THEME, BUT DON’T MARRY IT”
-It’s great to start with a theme but by the time your done your first draft you may find it’s become something far more potent. Now rewrite!
POINT #2: “DON’T GET STUCK ON AN IDEA”
-Remain open to inspiration as it comes. It may mean completely changing some of your concepts but it may also reveal treasures you never thought of.
POINT #3: “LET IT BE DONE EVENTUALLY”
-You can retool your story until the day you die, eventually, you have to put it out there and move on.
