Writing Tip #1

Written by admin on October 20th, 2010

All great stories have at their foundation, the confrontation between good and evil within the hero. The exterior adventure is only a projection of the inner turmoil, which has been hidden till now. How will the hero act when faced with the story challenge? What characteristics and abilities will be revealed during the pressure of the conflict? Who is this person at core, and what part of their essential nature will be revealed when the story reaches its climax?

How to create yourself into a successful writer! Part 3

Written by admin on December 7th, 2009

In the story industry, many writers wonder why, as well as complain, that they cannot sell their work. This is because what they have written reflects the state of their minds. They need to upgrade their minds and their stories will then become more and more saleable.

Your mind, of course, is remarkably easy to change. It is a plastic, mouldable substance that responds immediately to new instructions. In fact the most extraordinary quality of your mind is just how quickly it responds.

It also has the many higher faculties of the superconscious, which you can access with simple techniques, and so encourage brilliant and unique stories to come into your consciousness.

The superconscious can create utterly brilliant and original works that will have publishers and producers enter into frantic bidding wars, waving cheques of six and seven figure sums, to secure your story.

 

How to create yourself into a successful writer! Part 2

Written by admin on November 27th, 2009

Writing is an expression of your own mind. People read and view stories with their minds. Therefore, if you wish to be successful, you have to turn your attention to your own mind, so you can upgrade its functioning and so influence and inspire the minds of your audience.

Your mind has four levels. The unconscious, the subconscious, the conscious and the superconscious.

The unconscious is the intelligence governing the organic functioning of your body. The subconscious is your personal memories. The conscious is the everyday chatter of familiar thoughts as well as the logical and rational faculties. The superconscious is the source of inspiration, intuition, higher intelligence and genius. It is also the abode of the Mythopoetica, which is the faculty that creates dreams and all great stories.

Most people’s superconsciousness is drowned by the activities of their conscious and subconscious mind. They are on automatic, playing out the patterns that were inserted into them during their childhood. Many even have no idea whatsoever what their mind is, and how it operates.

This is unfortunate because it is their mind that creates their life through the choices they make.

For a writer, it is also their mind that creates their stories. The more pedestrian the mind, the more ordinary the story, and the less attractive it is to an audience.

The last activity when preparing your story

Written by admin on August 6th, 2009

To paraphrase Alfred Hitchcock: ‘First we write the screenplay and then we add the dialogue’. Many people begin to write their scripts or novels by immediately starting writing the characters speaking to each other. A story is something that is built from a variety of elements, just like a house is built from a variety of construction materials. The elements are called your structural principles. These must be mastered before you can write any story that will hold the attention of your audience.

 

The first decision for your story

Written by admin on July 31st, 2009

The easiest way to ensure that you finish your story, and that it has a logical progression, is by deciding on how you intend to finish it. You often hear that stories are written backwards. Not knowing this is like setting out in your car but not knowing where you are going. Why would you want to drive aimlessly through the streets going nowhere? It is the same with your writing. If you don’t know where you are going, you will never arrive, and of course your story will never be sold.

 

Get your story made into a film

Written by admin on July 28th, 2009

If you want your story made into a film, then the best thing you can do is to concentrate on writing an original script that can be made into a low budget film. This is much more likely to be made. Make sure it is unique in some way or another. It must also follow all the story structure principles. If you do this it has a great chance of being made. It will also be your entry point into the film industry because it will also give you a profile and offers of work.
