The new workshop room in action!
The first workshop in our new workshop room was a great success. We only had a small group, but we had fun, enjoyed the space and celebrated with a platter lunch and Bubbly.
3 of the attendees are returning students and expressed gratitude for what they learnt and their desire to come back to further workshops.
It doesn’t matter whether your story is written as a short story or novel, poem or play, dramatic writing keeps the reader or viewer on the edge of the seat, totally involved in the action.
By using rising conflict and resolution, your characters will come to life. They will become real individuals instead of paper cut-outs. Conflict plants a question in the reader’s mind and helps to heighten suspense. It also helps to identify the characters the reader relates to positively, and the ones the reader ‘loves to hate’.
Conflict must always be resolved. Unresolved conflict is very unsatisfying for the reader. Conflict can be resolved through the death or punishment of the ‘bad’ guy. But it can also be resolved through growth, resulting in mental or behavioural change in a character or group.
The final resolution at the end of the story must tie up all the loose ends and leave the reader with a sense of fulfilment.
The information and writing exercises in Gondor Writers’ Centre workshop, Create Dramatic Writing, on Saturday May 16, will help you to improve your writing by adding excitement and forward movement so that readers will want to keep reading and not put your story down until they reach the end.
