New at AFW: Zoom Labs

The first Zoom lab is The Logline Lab

Still struggling with loglines? We are going to be covering things like the two types of loglines, using tone in loglines, when stakes apply and when they do not in loglines, the importance of the word "must," the mindset of an industry logline reader, why metaphors and adjectives are not your logline's friend — and much much more.

I hope to see you there:

Saturday, September 25th, 7 PM EST

This is the last day to register for the logline lab. 

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone registered with the lab tomorrow.

So. The Logline Lab. There were a whole bunch of comedy of errors technical glitches and such that went down with the poor Logline Lab. The guests and lab participants were really nice about it, (thank you, lab participants, for being so wonderful and patient), and we have rescheduled the Logline Lab for next Saturday, October 2nd, 7 PM EST.

In between now and then I will be beating Zoom into submission.

I will also probably be drafting people unceremoniously into Zoom tests between now and then. You are forewarned, Sunday chat peeps. (ho ho ho)

This also means, if you missed the first lab, you have the opportunity to register for Logline Lab II — The Reckoning. And attend the October 2nd Lab.

The last AFW class of the year, The Writer's Reel, begins Tuesday. You are about out of time to register for this class if you have not already registered. (Crazy Person!) Hit that:

*The Dynamic Writing November session of the online master course has been bumped this year. The 2022 schedule will be coming out soon with new Dynamic Writing course dates. If you are in a massive hurry, though, the Dynamic Writing video master course is available online right now.

The new AFW 2022 course dates are up. Was cutting it a little close there but I beat the new year....

Why are the classes so light, you ask?

Because I need to finish the video classes. If I do not there will be a riot.

@seemaxrun I find it appealing. And I'm a pathetically slow reader, but the timing and repetition seem to be set up to handle that.

See (or read) you there. After I signed up, I realized that on 4/14 I won't be able to make the chat. It's my wife's birthday and I'd like to stay married.

And as far as my reworked log line here it is

" Shadow and Light is a drama about a responsible young man grappling with the consequences of being unjustly registered as a sex offender."

Essentially, the same thing I just added some words (although I don't know if they are too big, lol).

@chad It is on the right track. I think ex-con is more defining than "responsible young man." I also think being targeted by the police chief is an important factor. Did you save the loglines we did in lab? 

Shadow and Light is a drama about a young ex-con unjustly placed on a registered sex offenders list targeted by the police chief and a crusading journalist.

Stay away from "grappling." It's one of those sort of "mentally struggling" internal verbs that don't have much meaning in a logline because those are inactive.
