Triangles: The Secret Key to Drama

with J. Suzanne Frank

Triangles — The secret key to drama and the how/why of external and internal conflict and how to shift it. We all know our hero needs to change. And we all know that each scene needs conflict. But how do you do both? Enter Triangles, a demonstrable way to understand how your character is feeling in each beat and how/why there is external and internal conflict and how to shift it. Be prepared for diagrams, analyses and playing with dolls. Or spools of thread. Really, three of anything to see how you can design the acceleration of ALL conflict by using triangles.


J. Suzanne Frank is the author of nine novels. Her most recent release Laws of Migration is from Tyrus Books. She contributed to Akashic Books Dallas Noir anthology, edited by David Hale Smith. J. Suzanne Frank is the program Director, and an instructor, for The Writer’s Path at SMU. She's an avid reader and committed Whovian. Frank is working on the next Chloe and Cheftu quartet.
