Visual Words

Visual Words

Real Title: I’m supposed to create a visual with words…what?

By: Scribes Unleashed

This was written under one of my alter egos. I haven’t changed what I originally wrote in this. Did add my Real Title which I’ve been doing and that is it. And might even do an updated one for where I am now. Sort of a before and after.

In any story the author wants to get the reader invested in what they are reading. When words are complied together they should resonate. What is used is in my opinion visual words.

I have and have heard many readers mention how they got into such and such book. They could see the characters or feel they were in their shoes. This is all invoked by the visual words used by the author. When written well a story will bring to life what you are reading. You can picture it like a movie in your mind. The scenes roll out to you. You are living it and wondering what is happening next.

From each variety of emotion – the pulse pounding excitement of meeting someone to when you think all is lost. Then to getting back together and all in between. It is all driven by the visual words created by the tale you are reading.

If you think about it even before we get started to put pen to paper or type on a computer there were storytellers. And just as author now who use the tools to write pen/paper or type on a computer those storytellers used their words to create visuals. To create epic tales that drew the hearer in. Their words made the listener live, feel and be a part of it. Story telling is all about all the visual. Making the words come to life. They become – Visual Words.

Now go out there and kick butt getting stuff done.

Let me Speak I have a Voice

Let me Speak I have a Voice

Real Title: I’m the writer so it’s my way. I’m the characters and I scoff at your way.

By: Scribes Unleashed

This was written under one of my alter egos. I haven’t changed what I originally wrote in this. Did add my Real Title which I’ve been doing and that is it. And might even do an updated one for where I am now. Sort of a before and after.

“Come on it should go this way.” Voice A states.

“No I want it this way.” Voice B defends

“You better let me speak or…” Voice A warns.

“Or else what?” Voice B shoots back.

“I won’t say a word and we’ll see how far you get without me.” Voice A said with no inflection in the tone.

“Okay lets compromise.” Voice B suggests.

Voice A and B watch each other then sit down to discuss.

This is a mythical conversation between a writer (Voice B) and the characters (Voice A).

As a writer it is hard when you have vision of how a story will go then it takes a different turn because of how the characters want it to be. Characters have personalities, wants, desires, and opinions just like anyone else. I learned long ago to let them flow as they are supposed to. I learned to work together instead of against each other. This helps me create vivid real people and paranormal beings that make you want to laugh, cry, fight, and love with them. Writing takes a mix of all parts working together.

Don’t get me wrong in no way it is always roses and harmony but I’ve learned to work together. This is about getting the best story out to you the reader. In the process of creating characters that live you must keep true to the characters. Years ago this was hard for me. I had a vision I wanted but it didn’t ring true to the characters. When I realized in order to make the best book I would have to get deep inside the characters psyche I learned to listen and get their personalities so it rings true. It is a balancing act that you work on for each book to get it just where it needs to be.

Even when I read I can tell if a “voice” of the characters. I don’t know if that’s just me but I do and I enjoy novels that the characters voice is real more. Even some characters that stick with me even after the story is finished I take with me as I sleep. They pop up in my dreams. That to me is a sign of a great book. Characters that stay with you afterwards and make you wonder what is going on in their lives.

With my own characters that I have already written I don’t have to wonder. They pop up in my dreams also letting me know they are still there. When I am on a roll with a new character they won’t let me sleep or have a moment to myself. LOL. Yeah my mind is full and I love it.

My question to you. How does the characters in any novel you have read or written speak to you?

Now go out there and kick butt getting stuff done.

Scribesism ~ Recaps

This is weekly recap of Scribesism I have posted to the fb page and other social media.

When you get your success, writing goals, seeming to do it all right and any others number of things you will face others who will try to bring you down. Ignore them and do you. You know what you’ve done to get there. Work hard, work smart and you still continue to do it. Keep doing it.

#scribesism #motivate #beyou #dosomething #designersedgeink

There never seems enough time to get things done. Set realistic lists instead of the impossible.

#scribesism #motivate #beyou #dosomething #designersedgeink

Change can be daunting but sometimes you need to step outside your comfort zone. Challenging yourself helps you take those risks that can be beneficial and a learning experience.

#scribesism #motivate #beyou #dosomething #designersedgeink

Taking an idea and making it reality takes time, planning and determination. Dig deep and do it. You got this.

#scribesism #motivate #beyou #dosomething #designersedgeink

When you’re stuck on a story and can’t seem to move forward do something different. Take a walk or do something not related to your story. A step away can do wonders for your creativity.

#scribesism #motivate #beyou #dosomething #designersedgeink

Writing is an adventure that you get to build. From that first word, to all the in betweens and that last word and beyond that resonates with the readers.

#scribesism #motivate #beyou #dosomething #designersedgeink

Taking a much needed break once a week helps you recharge. One day off with nothing but relaxing.

Lesson Learned ~ Creativity Pivot

Lesson Learned ~ Creativity Pivot

By: Scribes Unleashed

Each week I’ll post a Lesson Learned. Here’s this weeks.

I was going through my bits/ideas folder. That’s basically where I have snippets of scenes, ideas or so on that I have to do in future. They don’t currently fit my series or books so I put them there.

Anyway I was going through it and came across an idea that I really want to do. So now I’m doing it and well excited. Love when that happens. This is gonna be fun. It’s different than things I am doing now. I’m working it in around my current writing schedule. So it’ll be a while before I even get close to saying anything more about it.

Love when I get these creativity pivots.

The lesson learned is review my bits/ideas folder more often but be prepare to add something new to my schedule. LOL.

I’m gonna end with the same statement I made and continue to make – do what is right for you.

Memorable Line

Memorable Line

Real Title: Where did I read that line…I need to read that book now!

By: Scribes Unleashed

This was written under one of my alter egos. I haven’t changed what I originally wrote in this. Did add my Real Title which I’ve been doing and that is it. And might even do an updated one for where I am now. Sort of a before and after.

Have you had a moment when a line in a book just grabs you. Makes you laugh, cry or just go hmmmm. That right there is the gist of a wonderful memorable line.

A line that stays with you long after you have read it and still makes you feel the emotion it invoked. I love books that give me that feeling. Give me that line that I have to share. Not every book has it but those that do are reader gold. (For more on what in my opinion is Reader Gold go here). Those books are keepers.

In the book I was reading the other day I came across a line that was reader gold. In that one line the author portrayed what their whole book was about. Gave me what the character was all about. It was so awesome that it made me get that tingle I usually get when I find a reader gold. The book went on my keeper shelf.

To be able to portray all that in just a line is so great. It is something I strive for as an author. Writing a book that leaves a lasting impression. Make the reader remember long after they close that book. Making a story memorable… one line at a time.

Now go out there and kick butt getting stuff done.
