This is a wonderful episode! We start off by discussing the problems with the introductions at the beginning of books. Then we get into a list of terrible writing advice and why we think the tips are so terrible. We also talk about certain Twitter writing drama, the Nobel Prize in Literature, and even briefly discuss the history of language in modern Japan and how it and their culture correlates to a specific writing style.
We're back with another Book of the Month! This time around, we're discussing the very first Sherlock Holmes story, A Study in Scarlet, written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We have a lot of fun breaking down the origin of Holmes and Watson, as well as how unique this first story was written.
