Learning To Write Fiction From Non-Fiction.

One of the things about my day job I love is that I get to meet so many fascinating people. I’m the host of a talk show called Sundial on WLRN. Today I spoke with author and reporter Tristram Korten about his new book Into the Storm.

It’s the true story of the maritime tragedy of the El Faro and of a second ship that sank that night during Hurricane Joaquin. His book got me thinking about writing fascinating and robust dialogue.

It also got me rethinking how I lay out scenes, especially moving from one location to another.

I'm blessed. Most of my professional career, almost 20 years, I've spent as a journalist. Some of it was in print, a little in television, but most of it in radio. I've worked with some wonderfully talented producers and directors in those two decades. It would take pages to elaborate on all of the experiences I've had as a reporter, producer and host. Needless to say they include opportunities talking with leaders of state, religious leaders, civic leaders, writers, artists and entertainers. The last couple decades have been a lot of fun. But, the next couple decades will be far better.
