Apology and All That's New.

First, I'd like to apologize for the recent lack of posts. You see, a few weeks ago life showed up at the door, and I've been busy ever since. However, my time is finally freeing up, so you can expect awesome posts coming your way anytime now.

Here's what the team and I have in store for you:

A review of "The Social Network." (It's better than you think--trust me.)

A review of "The Town." (It's also probably better than you think.)

And for all of you writers out there: how do you keep writing fresh dialogue page after page after page?

Write in between the lines.

Sound confusing? Good. That means I can write an entire post about it.

Now, make the best out of this absence of new posts and go read the old ones. Didn't you know they're all works of literature with multiple layers of meaning? 

Okay, fine. They're all simple and straight forward. But still, enjoy your time on the blog.

See you in the next post. Gotta get back to writing it.

  1. Writing between the lines--subtext--is critical for the fleshing out of story and language. Language itself becomes a character in the story, creating layers of meaning and depth. If she is flat and uninteresting, the story will be as well.

    If she is rich and full of her own stories and secrets, she will seduce us into her world and make the story addictive and engaging.

    The right use of language can create a lifelong love affair with the work. Subtext is one of my favorite methods of foreshadowing, revealing hidden secrets to the adept reader, and creating prose and dialogue that leave people breathless.

    I look forward to your post on this. I'm sure it will be very informative.
