What the hell is going on?

I’m author and freelance writer Jeff Somers and I’ll be discussing writing by over-thinking stories and what makes them work here. This won’t be your typical ‘here’s how to world-build’ or ‘here’s how to plot’ writing advice. This will be deep-dives into TV shows, films, video games, etc with an eye towards why they work, why they’re appealing in broad, general terms.

There will also be a lot of self-deprecating jokes, references to pantslessness and whiskey, and reasons for you to wonder why I’ve been as successful as I have been.
