Tuesday's Writer's Tip - A Last bit about Melodrama #BWLAuthor #MFRWAuthor #amwriting #Melodrama

 We've looked at using melodrama in your stories from a number of angles. The use can be direct and also by misdirection. Choosing which to use may take some thought on your part.  Using misdirection can be useful especially when writing long bits of exposition needed to establish backgrounds. Using a bit of melodraama can keep the story moving forward through that information you need the reader to know. Information that could be boring without some kind of break. This will allow the story to fall into a pattern of show and tell. I know it's said to always show the reader what 's happening. Sometimes one needs to tell but those passages don't have to be chapter long. Abit of melodrama will bring the story back into focus.
