Today we had one of the great actresses of our times, my niece, Marissa. She took time out of her busy schedule to come meet with some local authors who wrote two stories each from her acting. The exercise involved with Life in Keystrokes was quite a unique experience.

Marissa's first act was that of a young confused woman sitting waiting for something to happen. That's all she did for 10 minutes. We discussed 10 essential scene requirements to make writing come to life.

Each one of the authors gave her opinion of what they were seeing. Both of their stories were completely different from the other author. We're talking about setting, time, locations, age, emotions, and so much more.

After the workshop, the author's took their notes home to work on this week. We will read about their stories soon. So stay tuned and you will read what they wrote.
