    How do I write my own version of News from Lake Wobegon?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by aguywhotypes, Mar 20, 2015.

    I love listening to the News from Lake Wobegon.

    I'm trying to break it down and analyze it and the more I do the more I find it so difficult to put a finger on it. On the surface it sounds seems so simple but so complex at the same time.

    I want to write my own version of this. How would I go about it?

    1. Create a fictional town - I'm assuming maps, buildings/businesses etc

    2. Create rich quirky characters?

    3. Let life happen?

    Would you come up with a daily routine for each character?

    Isn't NFLW nothing but slice of life/vignettes?

    Any Help would be appreciated.
