“Exploding a Moment” Is like Looking at life in slow motion.
The Key ingredients for creating a great exploded moment include:
- Writer’s BINOCULARS- fine tuning your observations, using your senses to focus on the smallest detail. Making the blurry details clear!
- SNAPSHOT- SHOW don’t tell- paint a picture, freeze an image with your words. Try using a simile or a metaphor to create an image!
- THOUGHT SHOTS- TELL don’t show- share your inner thoughts and feelings as a writer. Put yourself in the scene!
