EP340: Abi Silver — Why We Write
Abi Silver is a lawyer and the author of Burton & Lamb courtroom thrillers, including the latest The Midas Game, which dives into the world of online gaming and Youtubers. Abi also wrote an article on why writers write and she tells us why your writing matters. And the two Marks get nostalgic for early computer games.
In this episode you will discover:
Abi’s three key elements for why we write.
Tips for writing for games.
And why it’s important to let authors know when you’ve enjoyed their book.
