MANIFESTATION OF YEARNING: The Flesh & Blood Factor of Good Storytelling
Yearning: A longing. A desire. An unfulfilled wish. A questioning. A hunger to know more.
In Page Lambert’s words: “First, enter the white-hot center of why you write. Second, enter the white-hot center of deep yearning…yours…your character’s. Third, enter the place where you dream. Let your vision and words rise like smoke from the creative fire. But manifesting our stories takes more than illusive desires. Our characters interpret the world through their senses, but we create their world through physical detail. Yearning comes alive through detail.” During the May Write Brain, Page will explore these ideas and more, helping us enter the white-hot center of detailed storytelling. “Whether you’re writing fiction or memoir, the deep (and sometimes dark) motivations behind every action, beneath every word–what Robert Olen Butler calls the yearning factor—is how we manifest our stories.”
