Topic: Pertaining to Lesson 4
With some of the more advanced beginner lessons upon us, I'm creating these pre-lesson threads so you know what to expect. Lesson 4 is probably one of the most challenging & significant lessons because it covers topics and tricks that, if absorbed & applied well, can absolutely transform your dialogue.
It also covers areas that all three of you have mentioned wanting to address.
With this lesson, we will also begin working on the writing you are actively engaged in currently. And by this I mean, the examples you supplied prior to the start of class. My advice to you is to look over those examples now, and begin applying some of the previous lessons to them: adjust the dialogue to best reflect the mantra points from lesson one. Fix any punctuation errors according to the guidelines from lesson two. Make adjustments to tags and movement from lesson three. Then you should be ready to begin the serious tinkering prompted by lesson four.
Also, the upcoming lesson is one (and any others you might be struggling with) that you might want to consider copying to your own computer. The toolbox tips especially, are some that I still have hanging on the wall above my writing computer. They serve as a constant reminder to always strive for more dynamic choices when creating dialogue.
Have a great weekend!
