Writers Who Read: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow - Gabrielle Zevin


June's meeting--IN PERSON at the Boulder Library Main Branch 2nd floor Flatirons Meeting Room & ONLINE (see link when you register)--is Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin (USA, 2022) on Sunday starting at 2:30 pm (for 2 hours). Facilities information here.


Today two-thirds of all Americans play video games regularly, and almost half are women, with 9 in 10 players saying they are playing as much or more than during the pandemic. Video games have evolved into a sophisticated story-telling medium, and it's those story creators who are at the heart of Gabrielle Zevin's 2022 novel.

We are Writers Who Read. We use Literary Forensics to dissect a recent novel (published within the past 18 months) with the goal of uncovering how the author has utilized their skills for effect. Storytelling is an art, but it's not a mystery. Every writer must address the following:

  • Structure, Timeline, Pacing, Suspense, Omission
  • Point of View, including Voice, Character, Place
  • Language, Tense, Imagery, Metaphor, Symbols
  • Motivation: Making a story pop - generating a thrill
  • Why this story? And why now? Industry considerations

We ask that all attendees read the entire book in advance of the meeting, and come bearing their discoveries of how the author has addressed each of the five points above.
