Artistic talent is more than writing prose, sketching or some form of art. It’s a way of expressing yourself and making choices in what you put into your work. If you write a form of prose, you want to keep some sort of theme or style that makes your work your own. Some writers use vocabulary to express a story whether it’s a different theme of work. If you’ll notice, songwriters have some of the same riffs, words and improvisions in their songs that can be recognized in the other piece of work.
All artists are about like this! Finding ways to express something that we would normally do in a different way is not costly, but very effective. Perhaps we have a character that is a thwarted evil villain. There is something quite kind about him, but all his evil plans is turned on him by cute woodland creatures. The evil villain has to use different ways of trying to take over the forest kingdom without getting confronted by the woodland creatures.
One woodland creature is the main instigator in ending the villains plans. He has a team to help him destroy each little minion that is created by the quirky villian. Anyway, the character makes appearances in real time not on a regular basis, but sometimes with his team. Each member of his team has a way of making you laugh, but the story is around the villain and the hero.
Writing is the same way as creating a cartoon. We all know some mad little man that wants to be taller than he really is and we all know some athletic person that can defy all feats. If we get into writing all genres the same story might apply. Perhaps Florence Joyner (Flo-Jo) had a favorite character to compete against in her running. Perhaps that is what made her colorful in a sense.
Writing is like drawing that picture. In elementary terms, you have to draw upon your resources to come up with a setting that the reader can really see, a character they can really confide, and characters can relate to. History articles can really be written in this way to entertain a crowd or an audience without boring them to tears. Of course, writing for children and young people is great in such a way.
Whatever your asperations are in writing or art, make sure you follow what you want. Inspire yourself in such a way that makes you want to continue to work and grow in an area. Don’t always rely on your critics, but listen to them. Challenge yourself into their criticisms. You can do that in a loving way or in a sarcastic, cyntical way and later laugh about it. Art and all areas is therapy regardless of who realizes it or not.
