Carrie Harris on writing ReMade Ep 7: “Mourning Train”

Every story has a rock bottom. You know, the moment where things are at their most dire. The moment when the magic sword breaks, or the MC’s one true love decides to move to Kankakee, or the last ditch escape vehicle dies right in the middle of a horde of zombies. There’s that moment when things get really bad, and it seems like there’s just no hope.

Ellen Kushner on writing Tremontaine S2E01: “Convocation”

The first thing I want to say is THANK YOU to every reader who somehow found their way here, stayed to take chocolate with the duchess (and to witness the giant vengeful swan pudding at the Ball).

E. C. Myers on writing ReMade E4: “The Most Dangerous Game”

ReMade: It’s like a way extreme version of starting at a new school where no one knows anything about you… And also there are tigers.

Carrie Harris on writing ReMade E3: “Home, Perilous Home”

Like Andrea’s experience writing about May in Episode 2, I’ve got a real personal stake in Nevaeh’s character from episode 3.

Andrea Phillips on writing Bookburners Season 2 Episode 11: “Shock and Awe”

You've probably noticed by now that Bookburners can be a little... weird?

Liz Duffy Adams and Delia Sherman on writing Whitehall Episode 13: “Safe Harbor”

It’s the last episode! And it was tremendous fun to write.

Brian Francis Slattery on writing Bookburners S2E10: “One With the World”

If Episode 8 was the easiest one of the season to write, Episode 10 was the hardest.
