766: Robert Fritz on Contrast

Early in his book, The Path of Least Resistance for Artists, Robert Fritz talks about the fundamental engine of art – contrast.

We talked about Fritz’s work back in episode 681, but here he relates the the example of Paul McCartney writing “Hello Goodbye”.

If you check out the lyrics of that song you’ll see that it’s a masterclass of lean contrast … and each line is a little engine that moves energy forward.

Remember: Contrast creates tension, tension creates conflict, conflict creates drama, and drama creates attention.
