In this episode, we discuss the critical nature of the inciting incident in fiction, which Tayor describes as “a single thing without which none of the characters in the story would have come together.”
We use examples from Taylor’s book, THE CATCH and a story that Steve is working on to illustrate how the inciting incident drives the story forward. We also discuss the reasons to avoid episodic elements in your writing, Taylor’s special talent as a chef and her Thanksgiving cooking plans.
