Well, I guess I was in a mood when I marked this topic for today. Perhaps I was thinking about writing drama, but the picture I grabbed seems to be something else. Nothing to do, but carry on. I mean, we all deal with drama to some extent. Even those who swear that they don’t. Seriously, they’re either in it, watching it, starting it, or pretending that it isn’t around. Life is drama! Can be as small as the dramatic decision to get out of bed, but it’s there. I think the term has been labeled with so much negativity that we can’t see it as anything else too. There can be good drama if it’s entertaining or leads to a happy event of some kind. Instead, we seem to use drama as a simple way of saying ‘starting shit’. Let’s get to the questions.
- How do you handle drama?
- Do you think every story needs some drama?
- Do you feel sorry for the word ‘drama’ because of its new negative connotation?
