You were once a wellspring of hope, honesty and emotion. The words you spoke and
wrote were raw. Each emotion you expressed was without filter. It is time to release your
inner child. Allow him/her to write lines that touch the heart, words that pierce with the
clarity of their pain.That’s right, I’m challenging you to be honest and to let your
characters be vulnerable on the page. No more censoring the lines typed into the
keyboard. Let us feel the emotions from the description of body language through their
inner and spoken dialog.
Be bold! Start with one scene. How does it read when the characters feelings are clearly
displayed? Notice the intensity and try it in an additional scene. You are an artist charged
with expressing concepts, creating worlds and pouring out a piece of yourself across the
page. Remember the inner child who said what he/she felt. Let that part of yourself
share in the expression process….
