What is your favorite story? What makes it your favorite?Is it the characters, the story, the dialog, the action, the prose? What about your favorite author?Writing discussions with authors usually focus on stories they just wrote, or their craft, and these are valuable and interesting discussions to have! But what about their personal favorite piece of their own writing? What makes it their favorite? Every word they set down is precious, carefully considered, examined, worried over, removed, added back, and removed again. What makes a piece their favorite? Why is it their favorite? What does it tell us about that author? Story of the Story seeks to help us understand our favorite authors, and to give them a chance to tell us about something they'll positively gush about: their favorite story.
