Charles Dickens, Carl Winderl, Zach Winderl

            So what is it that these 3 writers have in common – that they should headline this post?

            Charles Dickens here might be obvious:  he’s the most popular, well-known, and widely acclaimed for his literary talents.

            Carl Winderl . . . certainly less so:  except for those on the que vie – he’s Zach’s dad.

            And Zach? . . . apart from being Carl’s son – he’s most eminently the Literary Busker and notorious for his Atom & Go Series.

            More importantly though, these 3 appear here because they master the NADD Tools.       

            This 6-part series will reveal how all 3 have landed in this Venn Diagram for how to best tell a story “in print.”

            Dickens excelled in Great Expectations, a landmark novel of Realism.

            Carl Winderl plies his trade in poetry, as will be illustrated in his soon-to-be-published The Gospel According . . . to Mary.

            And Zach, in addition to being the Literary Busker, regales his readers with the soft sci-fi adventures of Atom & Co.

            Like all writers, regardless of genre, these 3 to-be-focused on in this series, have on hand a “tool box” for their art, and in it are many tools, but chief among them are those 4 lettered N – A – D – D.

            They stand for Narrative – Action – Description – Dialogue.

            In Great Expectations, The Gospel According . . . to Mary, and Atom & Go:  Trinity all 4 of these tools are used to great effectiveness:  to move storylines forward, to bring characters to life, and to engage and involve readers in each author’s vision of the world.

            The next 4 parts in this series will define, explain, and apply each tool, and then illustrate it with a brief example from the authors’ works.

            So, until the next post:  keep on keeping on; keep your head in the game; and always keep flying the Black.
