Good Narrative Principles

See How/Notice How


See how she turns away as she talks to that tall guy. Like she knows him. See how he bends down. Parks his ear near her mouth. Betcha he lost his hearing in high school. He could have been a basketball star. All those young girls screaming his name…stomping their feet in the bleachers. All those sound waves ricocheting off hard surfaces.
Maybe he was a dependable point guard.
Point guard? Is that a thing?
Notice how the couple there, in the corner stand shoulder to shoulder. Yeah, the one with that high ponytail which would totally give me a headache. See how one corner of his shirt lurches below the other. He must have missed a button.
Wonder if they notice me staring at them?
