Hey, did you all know what “ekphrastic” meant?
This post on tor.com offers “three ekphrastic dialogues.” Check them out!
Okay, so Google says “Ekphrastic refers to a form of writing, mostly poetry, wherein the author describes another work of art, usually visual.” Fine, fine, this use of the term to describe dialogue that takes place between the writer and the main character is a fun extension of the concept.
Now, I’m sure you’re all asking yourselves: is this what it’s really like to write?
No. No, it’s not. Or at least not for me. And I’m as much as just-go-with-it seat-of-the-pants writer as anybody. Still, I am not likely to forget the Mountains of Night or be startled by the appearance of a whole evil army.
Fun post, though.
