In addition to writing stories, M.G. Roth creates videos for the YouTube channel Why In The World? which is a channel for writers that demonstrates how different writing tools can be used to analyze stories and help writers become better storytellers.
Why In The World?
Why in the world do some stories work and others don't? It's a question that fascinates me. There is an almost mathematical precision to a good story. Events happen at just the right moment and in just the right way, paying off what came before and foreshadowing events to come. Each character in the story plays a role and complements the rest of the cast. The conflicts are the perfect foil to shape and obstruct the characters' goals.
Long before I began writing, I enjoyed analyzing and dissecting stories. I would learn writing tools, just for the purpose of better understanding why writers made the choices they did and why their work made me feel the way it did.
While studying the stories of other's was fun, and something I continue to do on the Why In The World? YouTube channel, I wanted to challenge myself to create my own stories. I wasn't a naturally talented writer, so at first the idea seemed daunting (if I'm honest, it still does), but I know that with had work and time, writing is a skill that can be learned and improved upon.
I am currently working on my debut novel, Shall We Overthrow the Gods, which is an adult Fantasy novel.
