Sowing Confusion for Fun and Profit

By  |  0 Comments

Over at Grasping for the Wind, I talk about the perceptions of characters and how, as writers, we can use them to our advantage to create tension and mystery, and to give the story a verisimilitude that would otherwise be missing.

I've recently been reading The Wise Man's Fear, by Patrick Rothfuss, and I used some excerpts to discuss these techniques, so beware: the post is a little bit spoilery, but I don't use anything beyond the 25% mark from the book.

If you're sufficiently braced, head on over to Grasping for the Wind for the read.
