Dropping the Needle!

Let the fun begin!

Just a word about Drop the Needle, particular for the newish type.  There's a special challenge involved in critiquing a scene from the thick of a novel, when we don't have a true sense of characters, setting, or story.  The short lead-ins will help, but sometimes we still feel a bit--well, lost.

So I think it's important to set that aside when you critique.  You might have unanswered questions, but that's part of Drop the Needle mystique.  Today's focus is HIGH EMOTION, so try to center your comments on whether the emotion is coming across, whether the dialogue is sharp and believable.

Okay? Good!
