Please bear in mind that fuller discussion and examples to support my suggestions here are really what are required for any concrete benefit, as well, I think, as face to face interaction. Also, it needs to be said that different genres attract different necessities. Obviously, poetry is a more distilled form of writing where every single word counts and any word not contributing full energy has to go; crime fiction calls for good plot development and a fast narrative, whereas these two elements in other forms of fiction may not be as crucial; memoir writing is very different to autobiography or biography in its demands, and so on… Continue reading
Two important elements we need to employ in this regard are imagination and curiosity. Even when writing ‘facts’ and non-fiction we need to use our imagination. We need to imagine ourselves into the facts to create the possibility of our understanding them or having empathy with the situation. In other words, we must be able to put ourselves in the shoes of others. Curiosity or interest can be the instigating force here. And when we succeed in doing this the words emerge with energy… Continue reading
The topic for the February column of ‘The Write Approach …’ is inspired by my written conversation with Nicholas Fourikis (03/04 Feb.) He discussed the freedom, or otherwise, associated with different genres of writing from his perspective. While we would all agree, I think, that the different forms have their own restrictions and demands, I want to discuss the power and the freedom that goes with working with words ‘imaginatively’ across genres. Without the use of imagination with any material we are attempting to analyse or associate with, we can only produce a more commonplace prose or verse. Continue reading
Every work of literature has both a situation and a story. The situation is the context or circumstance, sometimes the plot; the story is the emotional experience that preoccupies the writer, the insight, the wisdom, the thing one has come to say. Continue reading
The last column focussed on the discipline required within writing and I intended to devote two columns to this subject due to both the importance of it and the confusion that can enter a writer’s mind in relation to utilising emotion, imagination and discipline. Hence this column continues the discussion. Please Login or Register to read the rest of this … Continue reading
As writers we draw on many facets of ourselves for the telling of a story, the creation of a poem. We utilise knowledge, experience, feelings, sensory perceptions, memories, et al. As mentioned previously, you have a SITUATION and a STORY; to bring this alive the feelings that belong to it must be acknowledged and then realized as being the actual … Continue reading
Ron Price: I try to respond to incoming posts at the internet sites to which I belong. I rarely get time to respond to many incoming posts. This is due to the fact that I have a busy and full agenda. I will post below an outline of my internet activity to give you some idea of the range of my activities on the world wide web. I wish you all well in your online marketing and in your personal life–if the two can be separated in your case–or in mine.-Ron Price, Tasmania. Continue reading
