New Girl on the Writers’ Block – #Communicardo15 –

Viewing Rio 2016 Olympics it came clear to me – “most of the game is played away from the ball” – in other words four years of preparation, training and commitment is necessary for just a few days of the game.

And with regards to fictional characters we writers create – the game is also played away from the ball; for when we write dramatic moments for our fictional characters, we show the characters for who they are, through their responses to often eruptive events. But let’s not underestimate the more quieter moments that occur more regularly, like in real-life, can be just as powerful, whereby we judge characters away from the ball.
