S:1179 Distinction: Mellow Drama vs. Melodrama

(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)

 

Mellow Drama = Interesting characters, engaging situations, clever dialog, problems solved, satisfying conclusion, curtain closes, lights go up, everybody goes home pleased.

Melodrama = Not the above.

 

Coaching Point: And your choice is?
