The Implications of Action (Week of 5 March 2012)

The Confabulators came together on a Sunday afternoon last summer and began designing what would become the Cafe, where you’re reading this right now. Though it’s not a physical place, we imagine it being like the interior of a loft with a lot of brick and low-hanging lights that illuminate really only the centers of the tables they hang over, leaving the rest of the place in shadow most of the day.

When someone comes into the Cafe and looks at the menu, there’s a promise implicit between the two: Here’s what we have to offer and it’s up to you to choose what might interest you.

Our crew does its best to bring a variety of opinions and insights for your reading pleasure. This week we’re investigating the implications of action: showing versus telling and what that reveals about character. Some of us are exploring how much we trust our readers and how much description goes into our stories. It promises to be a very enlightening week of blogging. Come back as often as you can.

Cafe Management is run by the administration of The Confabulator Cafe. We keep things running smoothly, post stories by guest authors, and manage other boring back-end tasks.
