Class Title: Internal Dialogue: The Voice Inside Our Characters' Heads
Instructor(s): Marcy Kennedy
Price(s): $35.00 USD
Where: WANA Virtual Classroom (OnDemand)
When: Whenever you want
Internal dialogue is the voice inside our heads that we can't ignore, even when we want to. We second guess ourselves, pass judgment on the world around us, and are at our most emotionally vulnerable in our internal dialogue. And the same needs to be true for our characters.
Internal dialogue is one of the most powerful tools in a fiction writer’s arsenal. It’s an advantage we have over TV and movie script writers and playwrights. It's also one of the least understood and most often mismanaged elements of the writing craft.
This one hour webinar will…
• explain what internal dialogue is and what it isn't,
• show you how to format internal dialogue so you don't confuse your readers,
• walk through how to use internal dialogue to improve your characterization, add conflict, and move your plot forward, and
• make sure you know how to keep internal dialogue from stalling out your story.
This is an OnDemand class. You can sign up and listen to it at a time that's convenient for you.
