ASOIAF = A Song Of Ice And Fire (George R R Martin). Does anyone know of any websites, blogs, etc that really examine the ASOIAF books? As in, discussing character design, world-building, plot structure, how multiple viewpoints are used, opponents, battle scenes, etc? I find it helps me to read / listen to analyses of stories that I enjoy, especially if those analyses explore how each part of those stories were created. Not just saying 'I like this character' but rather 'This character is good because they represent this theme, they have this goal, they are a good opponent for this other character because...' and so on. Examining each aspect of the story closely from a fellow writer's perspective, rather than just a fan perspective, and looking at how all those aspects affect each other and combine to form the whole story. There are loads of sites out there that give advice about writing. But it's much easier for me to put that advice to use if I actually have examples of how it is used in stories I already know and like. ASOIAF is the most similar story I know of to one I'm writing, which is why I'm specifically looking for resources regarding that. I'm struggling to use a lot of writing advice because it doesn't give actual examples of it being used, which makes it harder to understand properly. If you have similar resources for any other fantasy fiction with multiple protagonists, feel free to post that too. You never know what will be helpful.
