FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
Remembering discusses how getting our characters to remember makes them more real to a reader and helps them to see where our “people” have come from. The more a reader can identify with a character (and we all have experience of remembering important things, personally and nationally), the more they will want to read about them after all.
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
The Art of Remembering continues the remembrance theme and asks what important events do your characters recall and why? What events have hit their world and still have an impact? There could be some very good stories on this theme. Good luck!
Incidentally I do have a News Page on both of my Weebly websites. This is usually updated every Friday with news of my latest Chandler’s Ford Today posts but I do post other news items such as publication news and so on.
CHANDLER’S FORD TODAY
My post tonight is a review of the Arthur Miller play, All My Sons, recently staged by The Chameleon Theatre Group. The play and the performances were brilliant. Remembrance is a vital thread to this play too. I not only review the play and performances but also share some of its history, including its links with McCarthyism.
