Expert's post
Happy Father's Day my friends. While I am not a father (by a longshot) I wanted to pass along my warm wishes. And as usual, the goings on of the day have...inspired me.

In a few short hours I will be headed off to see the Cubs play. Why is this relevant? Well, because it has to do with Drama. Bear with me (as always).

Take two teams. One, "the Yankees" for example, have won many championships, and are practically expected to win each game they play. The Cubs, in stark contrast, have NEVER won a championship. What does this have to do with anything? Drama.

Were the Cubs to win a championship, it would be HUGE news in Chicago...practically the entire midwest. If the Yankees win...another championship...yaaaawn. (No offense, Bronx Bombers fans out there.)

Why is this significant? Because we need to use this kind of drama in our writing. Even something so simple as "a person walking across the room" could be EXCITING and DRAMATIC. How? Well, put the guy in a blindfold and stick him right in front of a chair he's about to trip over. Drama.

Tonight, the Cubs play the Yankees. And if the Cubs win, boy oh boy. THAT will make for an exciting story.

Hope this helps, and go Cubs.
