COME JOIN US ! MARK IT ON YOUR SCHEDULE !
This coming Friday is our next Writers Talk Shop. Ed Owen will be our guest speaker and his topic will be Action vs Dialogue. Below is a brief idea of what to expect. Hope to see you there!
When writing a story, there are several parts that the author must consider. Setting, plot/story arc, characterization, exposition, action and dialogue. At the next Shop Talk we will look at the last two, how to balance them and the effect they have on the story.
Action is what the characters are doing, or what is being done or happening to them.
Dialogue is what they say and/or think.
Your mission, should you decide to accept it: Find examples of both Action and Dialogue and bring them to the meeting to read. One or two paragraphs are plenty. They can be good examples, or a lesson in what not to do when writing. Your example can also be all action, all dialogue or a combination of the two.
We will read examples to get a feel for the topic, then go through a short presentation. Afterward we will write our own examples and read them as time permits.
Please RSVP and consider bringing something to eat and drink for your hunger and thirst concerns.
This is an Awesome Opportunity for us to share our collective knowledge of the writing industry with each other !
Bring all the questions and all the information you have to the our "Writer's Shop Talk" meetup so we can swap info over Coffee ! Feel free to bring printed information to hand out as well. Compare notes, connect and network!
Writer Shop Talks will be scheduled as follows:
@ Rick's the 2nd Friday Evening of every month
So please always check the schedule! Address will only be emailed to those who RSVP.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me!
