22 minutes
Episode Notes

So. We've got our producer. We've got our story bible and all our plans set. But now it's time to start writing--which means it's time for Katie to start writing for characters she didn't come up with. This week, hear about how to overcome the anxieties of working with a story someone else already has roots in, featuring some truths and advice from Eli Barraza of The Whisperforge.
