How to Write Fiction: Working with a Theme in your fiction and characters!

In today's episode Author and Fiction Teacher Holly Lisle and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) cover all of this with an example that Holly comes up with and builds upon live.

How to Write Fiction: How to Know if You're Struggling for Good Reason or If Your Book is Killing Your Joy.

It's not always a flaw in your character or a lack of self-disipline - sometimes it's just the story.  So then the question becomes: How Can You Tell the Difference?
