Acting for writers

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

 

Here is more great writing advice from Life, the Universe, and Everything. The theme of the presentation is acting for writers: By Scott Bronson. Any misinformation is the fault of the note taker.

 

  • Second entrance: someone needs to enter with already existed. You need to be a person prior to going on stage. The same goes for writing
  • Do you have a private audience that you want to improve? Deceased parents or people in your head who you want to impress you want to perform for them to impress. You may want to determine a character’s private audience.
  • Book acting power by Robert colleen.
  • Even dialog where nothing happens can be front with deep emotion or purpose as motivated by what has happened before.
  • We don’t always talk about important things.
  • Takes the notes on how we behave how we walk, breath, physical actions, looks.
  • The audience likes people who do things more make an effort.
  • Body language. Wipe around tear, leg tense, Sighs. Awkward pause.
  • People behaving by who is observing them.
  • There is as much important to the notes you don’t play as the notes you do play.
  • In a pay q line aid “do you remember the first time I kissed you?” it was hard to do because the play did not give any idea of what the first kiss was like. The actor had an easier time once he devised an image. She was making spaghetti.
  • Actors have to do imagery work all the time, such as they’re in the kitchen and upstairs and need a sense of place and history.
  • How often have you read something that you did not get the sense of people are around? Authors often miss that detail.
  • Whatever details that will reveal who the people are around.
  • You can use action to show thought processer. Depending on how you describe the action will illustrate their attitude.
  • Inherit the stars: James b Hogan. Exposition on the moon discovers a human skeleton. Wearing a red space suit.
  • If a character has a quirk like rubbing their nose all the time, then you need a reason. The action is influenced by mind and hearts. If they break away from expected behavior there needs a reason.
  • Different characters in a scene will have a different objective in that scene. Estranged father and daughter father wants to build a suspension bridge and daughter wants to build a bridge and they miss each other.
  • A lot of power of a simple scene can be defined by what has happened before.
  • Notice other people and make judgments. Their actions may have a different meaning than the same actions you give and has a different meaning.
  • If you want to have your readers follow yours tory along. You need to love every character you are writing about. You need to acknowledge that behavior may not be bad or good.
  • Watch what people do and their body actions.
  • People entering a scene are coming from somewhere.
  • When you start in the middle of a scene you need to find out what has happened before.
  • Know what to say, why you’re saying it and say it so the other people will understand > is the objectives of a writers/ actors.

Strengthening our testimonies:

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

These are notes from church. A husband and wife team gave talks on the same subject. Any inaccurate info is the fault of the note taker.

  • A testimony is like a plant if you don’t nurture it will die.
  • Involve God in your life; he will strengthen your opportunities.
  • If we open our hearts and obey the commandments the Holy Ghost will strengthen our testimony.
  • President Monson says: (paraphrase) most of you are taught the trust of the gospel since being a toddler. The truths were implanted to help you gain a testimony. You believed what you taught. The testimony continues to grow it is up to live your life to build on it.
  • The spiritual experiments are sticks and flame to the fire of a testimony. Open our hearts and let the Holy Ghost in. it will strengthen our testimony.
  • We must be continually converted to the gospel: a testimony without conversion can slowly die.
  • Elder Belnor: being converted to the lord. Helemen 15:
  1. Believing In the teachings.
  2. Exercising faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  3. Repentances. Believe a mighty change of heart. Faith, exercise the path. A combination of active and passive steps.
  4. knowing that heavenly father lives, know that he loves us. Knowing Jesus Christ saved us and knowing that the church was restored.
  • How has your life changed with the knowledge that Christ is there?
  • The first question of the temple interview: do you believe God is real? (Paraphrased)
  • Continually ask God to confirm he is there.
  • People involve him in their lives by conversing with him during the day.
  • Knowing that Gods love us. Hopefully, you recognize he also loves other people. You can learn to value others as children of God.
  • Knowing Jesus Christ is our savior. He helps when no one else would. He performed the atonement which enabled him to understand us. To be fully converted, we need to do something active about our testimony give up our sins, pray daily and put him in our hearts.
  • Know that the gospel has been restored to us in the latter day.
  • President Monsoon (paraphrase) “each one of us has the responsibility for himself or herself that this gospel of Jesus Christ is true. … When we have such knowledge it is up to us what to do with it. One way to make it active is to learn other topics of the gospel.
  • One person was not happy of Hinckley replacing President Hunter. So she read his talks and implemented the teaching he taught and she gained a testimony. She gained the testimony of President Kimball.
  • President Snow: all may have a testimony… this gospel was a heaven-born institute… An honest-hearted man may gain a knowledge of this work. (Paraphrase) Everyone can do the same and become equal to me in knowledge.
  • As we act on our current testimony we build on more testimony
  • Building a testimony is returning to the basics repeatedly.
  • Nothing is insignificant to God. It if is important to you it’s important to him.
  • If you have hard challenges in your life, use them to grow.

Spelling Lightning

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

Good: Lightning

Bad: Lightening

 

I consistently spell this wrong. If I pronounced this correct there would be no E. Here might be a silly way to remember no e. LightNING occurs in an instant. Light and zing it there and gone. Zing sounds like NING.  This is not so good of a mnemonic device; but, we’ll see if it helps until I come up with a better idea.

Populism:

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

 

Panel at life the universe and everything.  I found the subject interesting.

  • Goes through a political process. An uprising from the bottom and has a strong good versus evil theme.
  • It the people opposes the elite of some kind.
  • Chavez: said America is evil.
  • Countries anti-Russian that are not part of Russia. Eastern bloc who felt Russia picked on them.
  • Involves a charismatic leader who becomes the voice of the people.
  • Populism tends to rise when they feel something in their life is in threat. Want a government that will fix the problem for us.
  • Early 1900 in Russia there were restrictions and people were starving and finally overthrew the monarchy.
  • Most people are rational when it comes to their own needs. But they will believe in someone who can take care of their biggest fear.
  • Mussolini did make the trains run on time.
  • The effect of taking care of a problem is the perception of being addressed not necessarily being fixed.
  • Stalin made them feel safe. Wanted to make sure that people who wanted rights they got them.
  • Hitler had an escape goat blaming country ills on Jews and homosexual.
  • Hitler invaded first countries that had Germans in it
  • Russia invaded Ukraine as it had Russians in it. Eastern Ukraine identifies themselves as Russian.
  • Germany and Russia sent people to other countries so that when they vote they want to join their mother country.
  • Populism is a man and a moment converging.
  • Arab spring was populist > but didn’t have a real leader. Social media allows groups to move events faster. It does not change the basic need a charismatic leader to succeed.
  • When someone is accused without being popular if they move from one group to another group that’s a symbol. One group is no longer a worthwhile scapegoat the will find another scapegoat.
  • Vote Loki: is a book that shows an example of a Popularist movement.
  • Love people and having a sound mind is effective then attack.
  • Freak-outs are usually lopsided. Supporters of popular leaders can see antis are not sharing legit info and the followers no longer trust the antis.
  • Hitler gained power with a small base was influenced by the parnonmant / government rules
  • Fiction book: level headiness. Franklin Roosevelt: He did a lot of put people to work that was unconstitutional. Panel thought he was a popularist who didn’t go bad.
  • Occupy movements: was anger at the elite.
  • Trump and Berny Sanders was Populism from both sides.
  • Examples of populism in history: look for revolutions in history. Kirk Ogens> Vaneswella.
  • Almost all human endeavor/movements are based on emotion.
  • 1917 Russia was two popularities’ groups fighting each other.
  • It has to come from the bottom an attitude of good versus evil.
