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.

We’re taught so often that art is a solitary practice. We’re taught artists are introverts, sole creators of their work, and that the influence of others always diminishes their vision. On this episode of Scoring Magic, we’ll tell you why that’s a whole mess of hogwash.
