4maya and the secret of prose

Thu Feb 20, 2014, 5:58 PM

I've been reading some of 4maya 's stuff and I just thought it would be an interesting time to bring up an idea I've had for a while about the goal of writing. OH YEAH, and look at the new JOURNAL design! I'm still figuring out this premium thing! Any way,


As I was reading some of her poems and such, I tried guessing the meaning behind them as a common English teacher might. I took her words as miniature metaphors and adapted them into my own way, making them applicable to this generation if not all generations. When I consulted her about a few, I discovered I was quite a bit off. I never told her these ideas, I mainly commented on the literal and not the metaphorical, but even that was a bit off. My interpretation of her work was a bit different from what she intended. What she wanted to convey. What she wanted me to think.


One of the largest goals of a writer is to get the reader to think of what the writer was thinking about. If I write about my travels to Hoenn, I want the reader to feel as if they were in my shoes during the time. This is why we use adjectives so much and descriptor words. Without them, there is no telling where the reader will take it and HOW they will take it. When the writer is not around, it is up to the reader to decide what the text means, which is why it is very important to be precise with your words.


Now to tell you guys the truth, I have NO IDEA where I was actually going with this, but I really have nothing more to write on the subject, so I'll just tell you to check her out. Too lazy to scroll to the top of the page to see her name? Don't worry, I have a solution! MORE LINKS 4maya

There's actually a better way to show the lines (just remembered)

Go to view -> guides -> make sure show guides is selected
then go back to view -> rulers and then click on the measurement things and drag down some lines.

Aww, thanks! I just recently got flash, so it's my newer stuff that's the good stuff. I'm trying to build up to making a simple series, you know 2 minute long things.

How do you manage all that full body stuff though! I've tried it before and I gave up after a bit, which is why I'm doing stick figures now, but if you have any tips or tricks, I'd love to hear them!
