message 1: by Graeme (new)

Graeme Rodaughan McKee breaks up the last part of his book into, the principle of antagonism, exposition, problems and solutions, character, the text, and finally a writer's method.

This thread will be devoted to reading this part of his book, and exploring the specific techniques under discussion.

Graeme Rodaughan Noting that the 'principle of antagonism,' is something I have taken to heart. I.e. the value in having a charismatic, nuanced, villain or nemesis character to throw the protagonist into sharp relief.


message 3: by Graeme (new)

Graeme Rodaughan Note that during discussions, it is entirely ok for a member to contribute a snippet of their story to demonstrate a point, or to ask a question.

The intent of these threads are to illuminate the principles and techniques that underlie effective story-telling in ways that help people to internalize the skills and bring them into their storytelling.

We're workshopping.
