Mannequin Monday – Moving the Scene Along
SNL original member Laraine Newman teaches us about improv, about moving a scene along. We clothe our bare mannequin with purpose.
And I offer another character sketch, this one with a touch of humor. Enjoy.
Mannequin Monday – Take Me Somewhere…
I’ve never been to the catacombs of Paris. Never come face to face with the roots of Irish humor. But on this Mannequin Monday books take me where I have never been. Elle Marr, Tana French…
Words don’t simply clothe a blank form. They transport the viewer.
And an excerpt from my next book Surfrider,
Mannequin Monday – The Whisper of Bones
“Come to Paris. Your sister is dead.” The opening lines from Elle Marr’s debut novel The Missing Sister. This week we clothe our mannequin with words, stories set in Paris, We visit three novels, two historical, one contemporary, all set in the City of Light.
And can we talk of Paris without Edith Piaf joining us? I offer an imaginative story of my own about the Paris catacombs. Thanks for joining us this week.
