How do you create tension?
I really like the opening scene from ‘Falling Down’. Builds tension through overstimulation and by the end of it you feel the need to take a breath, despite the scene just being a guy sitting in his car. https://youtu.be/piPzExBdfIg
Congrats to the winner! I’m sure Chuck will teach you a valuable lesson in tension when you open the package. (I’m not saying it’ll be the same, but for me, it was a matter of cutting the green wire).
Congratulations, Tom. Great examples!/
Congrats, Tom! 🎉
Curious what the other two favorites were? 😊

Another thing: Can I ask, are the Hindsight Story Nights every Monday?
And the Feedback/Critique nights, every Thursday for how long?
I'm looking to make the trip from out west to y'all – just want to make sure I got the dates right!
Thanks a million!
Congratulations! Love those examples.
I totally missed the contest somehow. My emails havent been showing up promptly.
Once again, for anyone interested, several members of this workshop also congregate in a Discord channel, and we're doing weekly video conference readings to help one another be better writers. Chuck is not present there, but the feedback helps. A lot.
