There is a Truth, where race, creed, gender, nationality, and anything that divides us one from another, does not exist. It is one unifying Light of pure and profoundly tender Love... it is Life, undivided, Truth with no opposite.
During this course we reverse engineer, take apart some well known and beloved characters in order to discover how they were built... the framework that they began as, is entirely responsible for whether they 'work' or not. When they are fleshed out, we believe who they are, we want them to get what they want, we find them irresistible to love, to hate, and everything in between.
This single element of an 'irresistible character' is what launches your ship or sinks your boat. Your character must have international appeal... it has to express the very essence of our shared and very human commonalities...and specify, focus on one of these features. FOCUS.
The novels, novellas, that are written in a style called, 'front-loaded' are typically the only novels that end up going through a scrutinizing process that may get them up on a big screen, or not to minimize it, a television screen (usually in a series). With great irony there were more novels written in this style before there were screens to appear on!
It could be argued, that many of today's writers do not spend sufficient time, or worse yet, lack the skill and techniques, to build the infra-structure of their lead characters. Often the character disappears under the weight of 'plot points' never again to emerge!
In the film making industry, the screenplay, for example, is a framework upon which a whole host of collaborators hang their handiwork. This framework, like other forms of architecture has to be sturdy - sustainable. Costume, makeup, set design, sound, music, light, location, etc. are just the beginning.
The 'Master Scribes' still have their work appearing in countless productions...decade after decade. They survive the 'changing times' and translate into opera, stage, screen, musical, etc. and all of that is due to the framework / structure of the characters.
Discovering how Dickens transformed Scrooge from the sinister miser he was into the delightful Uncle and darling Patron he became, is a wonderful journey...in fact, participants are cautioned to be aware that this course can cause you to plumb your own depths...after all, that's where you keep the fuel to fire up the character you've become and the ones you'll create.
The creation of characters, that are believable and moving.... that make us laugh and cry, are fictional for the most part...or are they? What these penned devices do is locate what's real to us...and they serve to generate power, the 'will to do' in us, or they offer a catalyst to release what we would otherwise find unbearably painful to discover in our selves and go through the process of releasing. Good solid characters 'emote' - MOVE and they make you want to MOVE with them wherever they go.
The 'old fashioned way' of saying 'social media' is 'customer care' or 'customer relations'... so the only thing new about this 'care' is the many new and useful avenues we can contact and serve our clients and cultivate prospects.
Successful companies pay a lot of attention towards retaining clients and spend less acquiring new ones. It would be a sobering moment if we could pencil-out the real costs involved to acquire a new client.
Thanksgiving is a perfect time to express gratitude to those who support your business. After all, where would your business be without those repeat customers who not only remain loyal to your brand, but go out and tell others about your offering?!
A simple 'Thank You!' during this festival holiday is a sure way to show a bit of appreciation and we feel certain that it will be remembered by your client.
We're very grateful for your support during our first year of baking gluten free products. It would never have happened if all of you had not made the effort and taken the time to tell a friend about us. You were the only advertising budget we had! Thank you again and...
