How writing can change your way of thinking…

  
Since I entered this magical, fictional world of literacy almost a year ago to the day, I have started to look at people and other elements in life differently. I’ve started to take note of people’s actions, dialogue and situations with a lot more intensity and concentration.

They say there is a story in everyone and that each and every one of us are different and that’s true, people have unique expressions and mannerisms. When you are face to face with someone you almost spot them instantly. The same cannot be said for a book making the whole process a lot harder.
In films, I’ve started taking a real interest in plots and how a storyline develops. I’ve found that I sometimes dislike the way something has been done and notice mistakes where others may not. It’s eye opening when you dig deeper into a storyline and begin to dissect it bit by bit.
So whether this new found interest in people and story’s has a benefit, only time will tell. I guess being able to criticise storylines etc can only be a good thing. Watch and learn Mark, watch and learn.
Thank you to each and every one of you for your continued support. I will have completed my version of the editing process in the next few days and then it’s out of my hands and almost time to hand it over to you!
Take care and thank you for your patience! Please do feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or can offer any advice or feedback.
Mark

    Hello Mark, Your style has tremedously improved and one can reed it much easier. You capacity of reflection is so much deeper and cool. It scarcely beleivable that the same person wrote the text I just went thru

    Thank you and my very best regards, Christine (van der vorst – Fontainas)

    I’ve been noticing the same things in films. Words in dialogue are used that weren’t used for that time in history. I see the “cart before the horse” type sequence of events sometimes. Is it just personal preference? Maybe.

      Hi Glynis, this could indeed be the case. After all, you would not expect a director making a multi million pound film to make an error. Surely?
