Summary

Getting students involved in the process of heightening, which is really the transforming of experience and self-expression into fiction, is a basic factor in teaching the writing of fiction. This process of heightening involves two devices for communicating "felt life": concretization and dramatization. In teaching these devices, prewrigting exercises of observation and perception are important for sharpening sensory responses. Next, students should practice writing external descriptions of a character, then present the character's emotions, and later put the character into interaction with another character. This is done by integrating voices, physical detail, and thought passages of concretized emotion to convey the experience of an encounter between two flesh-and-blood people. (JM)
