Lit Lunch – Judith Pond

February 13 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The Hero is Released: A Lit Lunch on Characterization

Often we try too hard, and end up mired in detail, without lifting our characters off the page. Literary critic James Wood calls this “the tyranny of necessary eloquence,” and suggests that by allowing ourselves to write closer to the plainness of mental speech, “the hero is released…; he is an ordinary man.” Or woman, or person.

It takes only a few well-placed strokes of color or bits of dialogue to bring a character to life. Let’s do lunch!
