One Painting is worth more than One thousand Short stories

One Painting is worth more than One thousand Short stories

Have you ever been to a museum and been captured by a particular painting? Felt like touching it, establishing a contact in order to discover what you might learn from it? What ideas, insights, or questions sprang to your mind? A single two-surfaced composition can be a source of inspiration and it has been so for many writers who expanded their initial attraction into a well-developed story that captured the attention of a multitude of readers. Why only them? Couldn’t also you be able to do like them and write a story after a painting that stimulated in you a particular reaction? If you see something in it that the artist did not imagine at the time, wouldn’t you like to add it to its value as a work of art that inspires reflection and change. The purpose of this book is twofold: first of all, it’s a reflection on what is at the heart of a creative writing process, with an analysis of the archetypal plots and characters that are found in a short story and an investigation in the working of the creative mind of a young adult. There will be the results of an analysis on the use of creative imagination in young writers, their preferred fictional archetypes, the way they connected their imaginary world to their real life and feelings, and their use of the elemental masculine and feminine principles in the construction of their stories. Secondly, it will be a practical guide on how to write a short story based on a painting from the past. You will be taken by the hand and guided into a journey that will allow you to write a short story about a painting that you consider special, particularly inspiring, that captured your curiosity and heart. There will be practical examples from students who underwent the same experience, at first doubtful of their own abilities to create something original and inspiring, but with the appropriate support, they managed to overcome the obstacles, learn something more about the writing process, and not only that, and eventually acquire some expertise in this field.
