Art of subtext – between and beyond the lines?

Hi there,

Strange but true – scripts that keep us interested and wanting more are often those ones in which the character’s motivations and intentions are hidden from us or seep out during the course of a story…and this more often through subtext and misdirection!

Now, I picked up a handy subtext template a while back – I’m sorry as I can’t remember where I found it but it is a real gem offering lots of ways to revisit your pages and inject intrigue through silence, action and discussions that are seemingly leading elsewhere…or are they?

Find the PDF of it here. Happy writing/editing!
