a:Desmond’s Drops: February Edition

Recommended Posts


Please welcome new Writer Unboxed contributor Desmond Hall to Writer Unboxed today! Desmond pitched a drops-of-wisdom-via-videos idea to us that we just loved, and we think you will, too. You’ll see him here once a month from now on, and each of his posts will offer three of Desmond’s “drops.” Desmond’s debut YA novel, YOUR CORNER DARK, released just a few weeks ago. He has a rich history as a teacher, a counselor, an award-winning playwright and filmmaker/director, Superbowl-commercial writer, and creative director for Spike’s Lee’s ad agency — and that’s just a sampling. Learn more about Desmond on his bio page HERE, and enjoy his drops of wisdom! Welcome, Desmond!

This month’s drops include:

  • Structure points that make scenes come to life
  • Tips on ACTION
  • Advice from Budd Schulberg

Look for more of Desmond’s Drops in March. Have your own bit of wisdom to share? Drop it in comments.
