Here we’ll be discussing chapters 1 to 4 of Dealing with Dragons.9 times out of 10, talking is a way of avoiding doing things
From Cimorene’s initial decisions to the dinner party later on, the differences between talking and doing are present throughout these first few chapters. A lot of the time in books, it takes the protagonist or someone else ‘doing’ to initiate the action or resolve the plot. But talking can be as powerful under the right circumstances, as our princess finds out when she manages to talk her way into her new position and avoid being rescued. Do you agree with the frog that talking is nearly always a way to avoid doing things? Or is it more complex than that?
