Dramatizing Your Content

Last Update: July 23, 2018

MAKING DRAMATIC DISCOVERIES.

We all know what DRAMA is! We live it in our everyday lives! DRAMA, good or bad, stirs up some DRAMATIC emotions and overtones. Sometimes, without even knowing it, we sensationalize events to make them more effective---to prove a greater point. Other times, we may force DRAMA on purpose.


DO YOU REMEMBER DRAMA CLASS?

For anyone who took DRAMA class in high school, you know that when you ACTED, the teacher always boldly emphasized for you to exaggerate the seriousness of the part you were playing.


Making a play, skit or a movie successful is to use DRAMA throughout, in order to create a great storyline and keep the audience on their toes and involved! The actors and actresses must portray DRAMATIC entrances and exits, as well as, DRAMA-filled plots and climaxes! I think the best example of DRAMA and film is within our TV box with soap operas! Anything that could happen on these programs, will happen!

DRAMA ON SCREEN.

Take the movies, for example. In Gone With the WInd, my favorite movie of all time, Scarlett O'hara is constantly and consistently over-DRAMATIZING and blowing everything out of proportion to get her way. She goes to great lengths to express herself in any way she can to make things go her way, no matter how much pain it causes others.

There are many other over-acting actors, as well, such as Jim Carey, Steve Martin and Dwayne Johnson "The Rock," whether they are acting out comedy or action packed thrillers.

WHAT ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA?!

And let's not forget about Social Media and all the DRAMA dwelling there! There are so many DRAMATIC happenings there that are played out with ridiculous displays of immaturity. We also see ordinary people, famous stars and government officials tweeting with DRAMATIC expression all the time, or posting on FaceBook.


HOW IS DRAMATIZE DEFINED?

The proper definition of the word DRAMATIZE is to create DRAMA, to overdo, magnify, blow up, overstate, hyperbolize, embellish, inflate or amplify. It is playing out an emotion or emphasizing a topic to prove a point.

A hyperactive child uses DRAMA to get his or her way. Sometimes, resorting to temper tantrams.

DRAMA is a widespread of emotions, being overly happy and elated or overly sad and angry. Whatever the case, it neverless is all DRAMA!

YES, DRAMA IS EVERYWHERE!

You might have DRAMA in your family, where siblings may spill out some DRAMA in order to stir up controversary with your parents.

Or, maybe there's DRAMA amongst your friends, displaying DRAMA to win the hearts of certain boys. Whatever the case, it engulfs our life in an upbeat fashion, signifiying that life is full of excitement and flare!


THE DRAMATIC POINT OF THIS POST.

In reading the above, one can see exactly where this is going.---Since DRAMA fills our TV screens, Movie Theaters, the Internet and Phones, we are comsumed with it!

That brings me to my whole point and what I would like to say, in conclusion.

What if you could take all the DRAMA you see around you on a daily basis and apply it to the CONTENT on your website? You could turn it around and instead of using DRAMA unproductively, you could write some very productive articles!

DRAMA always strikes the attention of everyone that is exposed to it.

Writing with DRAMATIC flare will truly captivate, tantilize and intrigue your audience into becoming interested in what you're offering.

Be truthful, and add exciting DRAMA when effective and suitable for both yourself and your customer! To do so will require you to kind of play it out! Put yourself in your audience's shoes and speak to them with vim and vigor---and give it a dramatic call to action at the end.


Use the DRAMA effect in a creative and sensible way---in your CONTENT! Leave the other DRAMA out there!

PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS POST TO SPREAD THE (you guessed it!)--DRAMA! Thank you!

Drama...ohhhh, I tend to avoid it unless I could find a use for it. Sometimes when I see the drama unfold, those lightbulb moments pop up and I instantly regret not having my journal with me. lol

Drama can be very useful in creating masterpieces or just a good ole blog article. Numerous advantages, really. Good or bad. :P

As a fellow Author, I knew you could understand.

Now to what you are saying - yes, yes, and hell more yes - I am going to try to brainstorm how I could add drama to my posts!

Blessings!

And again, thank you for being the highlight of my day so far!

Erin, thank You again for all you do. I am amazed constantly, where do you find the time? I hope the wedding goes perfectly. Weddings are one of the most special events and I believe God is ever present at them! So excited for you and your family.
Just wanted to say again what a blessing to have come to WA and find you here. You are sharing such useful tips and I'm always reading your blog for encouragement and to learn. These last 2 blog posts especially helpful as I'm filling out my first website with posts and pages. Looking to get ranked, looking to get traffic and checking every day for bites! I know that the traffic is coming and will soon overtake me. Until then I'll keep on reading, learning and do-ing.
Thanks for all you bring to this community.
Blessings!

This is so funny because I avoid drama at all costs in my offline life. I detest people who create drama, because it is often at the expense of others.

BUT I know it has a place in content and I do strive to provide interest and intrigue for my readers. I’ve even been getting a bit controversial with my last two posts so I suppose I am creating drama of my own lol.

Great post as always Erin, thank you.

Thanks, Heidi! I also avoid drama in Social Media circumstances and elsewhere--the negative aspects of it. Seeing it in a more positive light will be productive for all who take heed in applying it! Love that you're already implementing it! :)

How do we share on here, I see the like green rectangle, but not sure how to share, I also like how you come across and your grammar and punctuation, that is what I have to work on, so asked my daughter who is an editor to edit before I post

Hey, Khurshi! If you share to Social Media, there is an affiliate link at the top of each post. Click on it and select "copy." Then, when you share it and people go to it, if they sign up with WA, you get them as your referral.

If you share it within the community here, simply copy and paste the domain address at the top.

It is a true blessing having a daughter for an editor, I'm sure! Take advantage of it! :)! xoxo

Awesome perspective Erin. It is all about thinking outside the box but sometimes using what's already within the box. Drama in whatever shape or form will always capture attention.
Thanks for sharing. Keep up the great work.
