use playwriting in a sentence.
I have a theatre degree with concentrations in playwriting, acting and directing …
I did have a good eye and ear for character, one of the few things I was able to grasp in playwriting and carry into fiction.
Also, I'm not trying to sound snooty or anything, but I have a graduate degree in playwriting, so I probably spend way too much time analyzing things like character, plot development, symbolism and other imagery, plot contrivances, etc., to the extent that I realize I probably attribute things to an author that even the author may not have intended.
One of the first lessons I learned in playwriting was that if you couldn't boil the plotline down to a single sentence, you had a problem.
I'm not a psychologist, but my years of studying theatre and character development in playwriting and dramatic literature lend some insight to this behavior.
