Write As Rain

Write As Rain

This is a podcast for all creative writers. I aim to help get my fellow writers into a creative mindset and a daily habit while sharing my successes and struggles in my journey. There will be creative prompts that I do alongside you because that's how I always used to get into the right headspace to write. I will also review books that have been adapted for the screen.

Quote of the day:
“I don't write about adolescence. I write about war. For adolescents.” Suzanne Collins.

In today’s episode, I am reviewing the Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, both the book and movie that was adapted from it. As a video producer and writer, I respect that movies and TV shows are different mediums for storytelling. No screen adaption of a book will ever be 100% like the novel, but that doesn't mean it can't work.
