Meetup 025: Drama

Without too much ado, I would like to clap a cheer to our host this weekend, Aravind. He covered a bit and piece of one of the most important elements of writing and literature. Drama! And most of us, were pure naturals at it, figuratively in our writing and actions, resulting in excellently spun stories on variant topics, by the end of the day.

Drama is literature written for performance – or at least that’s what it is conventionally penned for. But today we discover that drama is just another form of expression through writing. Of all fictional forms, drama comes closest to virtual transcription of speech. It relies on simulating the language of everyday speech as well as the encounters and interaction of speech: lying, confronting, prevaricating, concealing, admitting, proclaiming, and a wealth of other social/linguistic interactions.

Exercise:

The task was pretty simple. A write up was to be written incorporating emotions and dramatic content, whilst containing a plot and a sub-plot. Fictional drama has always been a profound yet innate task of every activity at WC and so each and every story reeked of drama and thereby a bunch of life.
