Let’s Get Physical

All Levels | Many stories and novels read as if we’re talking heads or disembodied voices floating in a vague, nondescript space. To create a vivid world on the page with complex characters interacting in a specific environment, you need to bring the physical dimension alive. Learn and practice six techniques to flesh out narratives, build tension, and create propulsion: bodily appearance, gesture, spatial relationships between characters, sex, objects, and the natural-social-economic-political environment.
