219 – Over-Burdened Stories

The Mythcreant Podcast
This intro was originally five paragraphs long, but that would have been way too much information, so I shortened it. Coincidentally, we’re talking about over-burdened stories. What makes a story over-burdened, you ask? Listen and we’ll explain! We talk about how stories get loaded down with too much information, what the consequences are, and how you can prevent it. Plus, a fight over maps in fantasy novels!
