What is needed to write a story.
I. Script Written copy of the dialogue that the actors will speak. Written copy of the dialogue that the actors will speak.
II. Language: How the script requires the characters to speak. A. Word Choice/Style: Types or styles of words that are used in the script. Example #1: Shakespeare language (Thou, hither, shalt, etc.) Elizabethan Style Example #2: The writing in modern times is very informal (not as fancy as Shakespeares) and is conversational like we talk today.
b. Dialect: the way a specific group of people speak. Examples: southern dialect, northern dialect, Hispanic, English (accent), etc.
c. Point-of-View: The perspective from which an author tells a story (first, second, or third person). First person point of view includes the thoughts and perspective of one main character, who's telling his/her own story. As I walked up the hill, I realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet. There was no sound from the cardinal who was nearly always singing from the top of the maple tree. I thought I saw a shadow move high up on the slope, but when I looked again it was gone. Still, I shuddered as I felt a silent threat pass over me like a cloud over the sun.
Second person point of view turns the reader into the character. As you walk up the hill, you realize that the atmosphere's just too quiet. There's no sound from the cardinal you know is almost always singing from the top of the maple tree. You think you see a shadow move high up on the slope, but when you look again it's gone. You shudder as you feel a silent threat pass over you. You feel cold, like a cloud just passed over the sun. Cookbooks Choose Your Own Adventure Books Self-Help Books
