Fringe of Marin Festival packed house 2012 April 13

Carol Sheldon

How can a talented novelist also be a great playwright AND a fabulous actress too! Yes, Carol Sheldon can be all 3!

Carol’s play Three Old Ladies Talk About Sex (monologues) was the second one in the program; during intermission, I heard a woman tell Creative Director Annette Lust “The second play was wonderful” and the two people nearby voice their agreement.

Patricia L. Morin,

The lessons in your play The Gatekeeper are heartfelt.  Engaging, entertaining, thought-provoking!  Brava!

Story Consultant/Editor/Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan celebrating brilliant story-tellers.

All three writers transport Reader to another place another time masterfully: Carol Sheldon (Mother Lode the novel); Mary Jo McConahay (Maya Roads: One Woman’s Journey Among the People of the Rainforest the memoir); and Woody Allen ( Midnight in Paris the screenplay).

How these Authors pull Reader into their story worlds:

Carol Sheldon puts Protagonist Jorie in a blizzard, with no town lights in sight, and it’s almost impossible to steer a steady course with the buggy. . . . One wrong move and the gelding could slip into a ditch . . . .  I need to get to the sheriff’s.  I need to get there soon  . . . .

By the way, Carol Sheldon will be at Book Passage in Corte Madera, CA on Sunday March 18, 2012 at noon!  http://carolsheldon.wordpress.com/ Yours truly Writing Coach Teresa gets to interview Carol on stage at this event!

And, Carol Sheldon will be performing her 15-minute play Three Old Ladies Talk About Sex for Fringe of Marin Festival of New Bay Area One-Act Plays and Solos at Dominican University Campus in Meadowlands Assembly Hall (San Rafael, CA). Carol is in Program I.   Five dates in April 2012 to choose from.    http://www.fringeofmarin.com/performanceschedule.html

 

Mother Lode by Carol Sheldon page 1

 

Mary Jo McConahay hooks in prologue with:   . . .  I never imagined someday my dream clothes would be loose khaki pants, my dream shoes canvas boots.  But something happened when I hit my twenties.  Visiting Mexico City . . .  I saw an exhibit about the Lacandon Maya Indians . . . The year was 1973 . . . .

Maya Roads: One Woman's Journey Among the People of the Rainforest by Mary Jo McConahay

Midnight in Paris by Woody Allen - movie opens with over 3 minutes of visuals and music only (no human voices)

Woody Allen dedicated over 3 minutes of visuals and music only (no human voices) to show us his story-world –  Paris in day light; Paris in rain light; Paris in night light; the music evokes a sense of longing.

Protagonist Gil’s first words:  “This … is unbelievable!  There is no city like this in the world.”

To each one of my clients — past, present, future:

Please review your manuscript. Hook Reader with story-world and what your protagonist wants.

Cheering for you and all writers and readers!

Sincerely,

Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan
