That makes sense and I do appreciate this. Thanks for posting your opinion.If you're talking about the characters doing things that require multiple actions I like to write the changes in movement or changes in direction. I start with writing all the changes then smooth it out until it feels visually fluid. I good practice is to write someone doing something simple like washing dishes or dancing a waltz.
I am not be very good at imagining movement while there is description that requires research. For example I read write a list of verbs associated with water if I wanted to describe the movement of a water fountain. Anyways most of us require visual input and that I haven't tried.I don't understand the question.
Do you refer to my most rigorous 'I stood & I hitched up my trousers and I moved one foot in front of the other foot. I repeated the process. Again I moved one foot in front of the other foot until by this process of perambulation I reached an other room. Here I found a chair, used powers of great vision, approached said chaise. I sat on my bottom.'
...truthfully I do tend to overwrite movement, drafting many times. I found, or I attempted at least - quite recently to hop swathes from the process of standing up toward 'one mile later' without damaging the narrative... ...pictures. I hope it was effective. It took me a while. But why?
Or do you mean Bauhaus art movement, 1930s fascism?
Themightyaz: I think that may work for you but what about depicting movement from objects or animals? What if you want to depict a different peron, place, or thing that moves in such places that require research? Am I limited to the places I live or go to because that is using writing what you know? Writing what you don't know is more difficult or interactions with such an environment that I don't know. Let's say you want to depict movement inside a store and not necessarily a house. If you haven't been at an ice skating rink how will you do it?
I don't think the answer to my question is very easy for me to decipher. Let's make this a little more difficult. A movement of a person in a toy shop when its about to close.
Silent movies seems like a logical solution since it is a unique art form for this.
I did order a book on how to describe after using multimedia such as movies and youtube.I am just wondering given that what I want to do is tougher than me moving myself from one place to another on how would you write it or tettsuo? What does the prewriting process look like? What resources do you use?
