Making Silence BOOM!

Silence happens—in real life and on the page. But sometimes when writers share silence on the page it’s blah-blah bland. Powerless. It’s stated, then the scene continues.

No power there.

But in real life, what happens when a room goes silent?

Hellooo subtext.

Hellooo instinctive reactions and visceral responses.

Hellooo glances, gaze aversions, and veiled or loaded facial expressions.

Good start. But how you convey silence on the page needs to be fresh and powerful.

Join me in this 90-minute webinar and you’ll learn how silence can:

  1. Strengthen emotion
  2. Elicit a visceral response
  3. Share relationship dynamics
  4. Add tension or release tension
  5. Create a chance to slip in backstory
  6. Add more power to pauses and hesitations
  7. Deepen the scene by sharing how it impacts the POV character

Come on! You know you'll learn lots of ways to empower silence.

PLUS -- You'll learn, or get a refresher on, my deep editing techniques. What's not to love about learning? And making your writing NYT strong!

Another fantastic webinar. Everything Margie does continues to blow my mind. I am completely hooked. This webinar helped me to learn techniques to amplify silence and not just say things like the room went silent. After doing this webinar, I was able to truly make my words come alive on my pages. I can't recommend this and all the other webinars enough. Everything is amazing.
