Organic Description - Latest Blood-Red Pencil Post

Description in storytelling is one of those things that can make a story sing or make a story sink. In my latest Blood-Red Pencil post, "Writing in 140: Organic Description," I talk about the importance of weaving description into your story instead of clumping long passages of description into a work, thus slowing the pace of reading for the reader. Check it out here, [LINK], and leave comments!

Part 4 of 5-Part Book to Screen Series LIVE @ APOOO Bookclub

In the first three parts of the five-part series, Book to Screen, I offered advice on books and software to help you on the scriptwriting journey, seeing your book as a visual story, and seeing your book within a movie structure frame.

In this next part, I talk about the actual writing of the script, with short discussion on major story components, such as action, character, and dialogue.

Big thank you to those who have e-mailed about the series, have learned from it thus far, and are actually interested in now turning their books into possible screenplays!

Now, let's move forward in this journey! To read my latest The Write Life for You article in the Book to Screen series, head to APOOO Bookclub via this [link].
