Every so often, I conduct a black and white workshop for my photo club.
We go over the basics of looking for shapes, patterns, textures, and high contrast. It's a lot of fun!
Converting from color to black and white can make a scene come to life...
It can also save a scene that wasn't quite right...
How does this relate to writing?
Sometimes a scene or even the whole manuscript isn't working. We need to approach it from a new perspective and see what works best:
* Changing POV?
* Changing main characters?
* Changing setting?
* Changing genre?
* Changing storyline?
Just like switching from color to black and white, we can change something major in our manuscript that presents a fresh perspective and puts a new spin on our work.
Any changes you need to make?
