Getting to the Core Idea in Your Novel

Getting to the Core Idea in Your Novel | Litteris | Scoop.it

As we continue on with exploring cinematic secrets that can supercharge your novel, we’re going to focus on something that is crucial to filmmakers, and that is getting a clear vision for the story. Novelists, just like filmmakers, need to truly understand the story they are trying to tell and what impact or take-home feeling or message they want to leave with their readers. Just coming up with a neat idea for a novel is only the first step, and is no guarantee they will have a terrific book.

Sarah McElrath's curator insight, February 1, 2013 3:51 AM

Interesting article. This would eplain why so many individuals now thought to be creative were not considered so during their lifetime. Still, if something is useful to you--solves a problem for you in a unique way--is that not still creative? The "useful" part also troubles me a bit. Makes for good discussions.

They cannot focus on one thing quite like the average person. Essentially, their stream of ideas is always running -- the tap does not shut off -- and, as a result, creative people show schizophrenic, borderline manic-depressive tendencies.

Jules Pourchon's comment, February 13, 9:48 AM
I do like this article because in my opinion this is exactly how I see creativity. The main thing that comes out from the video is the way to integrate creativity in people's everyday life, through the environment in which they are living. I like the idea of the term “disruptive realism” because it is for me the perfect way to catch people attention and to make them think about the message you want to deliver. We are living in a new era with new way to express and to create and what the video shows is the modernity of the creativity. Banksy in my opinion represents the perfect example of creativity thanks to his work that creates a real break between our original way of thinking, of perception and the new world we are living in. I’d like to think that these disruptions will lead us to many other experiences and different perception of our environment.

Céline Ferrenbach's comment, February 13, 2:27 PM
This video found an echo inside me and I wish people would teach you this at school. Indeed, that’s exactly what I am thinking about when talking about creativity. When I see advertising, innovative design in the streets, in malls or wherever which focus on “being different, original and fun” I just tell myself: “they got it!” And that’s what any company would want to be. Thinking out of the box, being the difference that matters, and making people smile. <br>Just as Steve Jobs put it: “Think different”. But think different does not mean being an outcast who doesn’t like to be like the others. It means that you should never take anything for granted, not even what you think you know, most of all not what you think you know! Because to me, a good leader is also someone who has as a mantra Socrate’s quote : “I know one thing: that I know nothing”. This leader is curious, eager to learn everything and he knows learning can come from everywhere, everybody. By always putting yourself and what you know into question, you avoid to get stuck in one way of thinking, as often seen. People are often stuck in a vision of the world somebody, a culture, traditions, taught them. This is a perfect way to remind them that there are always different types of perspective. <br>Staying curious is the first step to be creative. And by experimenting new approaches, “disruptive realism”, innovative design and so on, you are offering people new filters of perception they would have never thought about.
