Creators Spotlight: The Flood, Midnight Mind & Paraphernalia (Updated)

Update: Okay so relooking at this, I felt I should change it, so for those reading it how it is now, just know that it won’t be like this later, some things might stay in, but the rest i’m going to try and change around…….

I got to read 3 great posts, by three great writers the other day and I just wanted to write a post about it, it was originally going to be a video that I wanted to do, but I later decided that writing on it would be better, I thought what they did was creative and I thought all of their posts were incredible and I wanted to share it in someway and I hope that’s okay

Just to give you a quick idea on what their post is about, without spoiling anything, they took a song lyric from one of their favorite artist and wrote a story with it, it was very cool, amazing and pretty creative too, very creative actually, they’re are a lot blog posts that i’ve read, but reading theirs, well let’s just say there aren’t much words I can say to describe them, but their way of writing and expression is something truly special!!

I can’t really express what i’m trying to say right now, but it’s good, when you read their posts, you’ll know what I mean right away, but i’m telling they really are amazing writers, but don’t take it from me, read their posts and have a look for yourselves, I think you’ll find it to be really interesting, I sure did!! You can check them and their blogs out here:

The Flood: A Shadow Tilts It’s Head At Me (Sarah’s Post)

Midnight Mind: Spirits In The Dark Are Waiting (Jul’s Post)

Paraphernalia: I Will Let The Wind Go Quietly (Clara’s post)

Just a heads up though when you’re reading, the posts that i’ve shared are hosted ones between the three of them, they did a collaboration post, which means they’ve gone and hosted each others post on their blogs so you’ll be reading them in a different way, but don’t worry they’ve been nice to share the links on their blogs to each others post so you can easily access them once you’re finished reading the one you’ve read, but do go over and share some love and and support toward Sarah, Clara and Jul’s blogs,

I’m pretty sure they’d appreciate it and i’m sure it’d mean a lot to them too, they’re all talented and great writers and I think they deserve for their blogs to be read so if you can and are interested do go check them out!!

What’s The Best Way To Tell A Story!?…….

You can tell a story in many different ways, from artwork, pictures, music, anything really, but what’s the best way to tell a story!? This is a question that I literally just came up with and hope to have it be a post for today, my favorite way that I feel you can really tell a story is from music.

You tell a story from the lyrics of the music you’re listening to, most people prefer the instrumentals or beats behind it, but the real gem for me comes from the way the lyrics are written, now i’m not saying all music have great lyrics, there are some songs that don’t really correlate the best with the way the music sounds, but it doesn’t mean there’s no story behind it,

It just sometimes can get lost in the way it’s being delivered, but I guess everyone has their own way of interpreting so we can’t really say much, you can only go with the genre and style of music that feels and is best to you!! If you didn’t already know, I love a great written song, hopefully that line makes sense……apart from a great writing style, i’d be lying if I said that I didn’t also appreciate the way the music gets arrange instrumentally.

Besides having a song that speaks to you or pulls you in with the lyrics, I love it when i’m hearing a song and the music, you know the way the instrumental moments wraps the song up nicely, welcoming it with open arms and just letting it be what it is, but also getting it’s moment to be what it is as well, it’s just wonderful!!

You’re getting to feel the whole essence, the whole journey that the songs goes on and with each instrument or beat if you’re more on that pitch or field……you really start to admire what the song is and what it’s about and knowing all of that, you’ll start to fall in line and space out with it, you can’t go wrong with that kind of combination you know!?

We all have songs though where we listen to it specifically for the lyrics and some just because we love the way it sounds instrumentally, but when you find that combination where both go hand in hand and you feel it from both sides, you know you’re listening to something good!!

That is my take on what I feel to be the best form of storytelling, but again there’s many ways to tell a story, another form that I like is art!! Drawing painting things like that, with art you get to see things in a whole different perspective that isn’t music related…..when you look at a picture, be it portrait or landscape, you are challenged to interpret what it is you see, what you think the painting or picture is trying to say and if you’re able to,

You then have to determine what the feeling of it is and compare it to your own, it can be the same or it might be something completely different. Art gives you the chance to create and interpret how you want to and it let’s you feel what you want without having to give reason or explanation, that’s why I like doodling, I get to make things in an abstract way without letting you know how i’m truly feeling, sometimes we don’t want to talk,

So we talk by making something if we’re able to, you can be in the worst mood and make something, but people won’t know you were in a horrible mood unless you go and tell them, but you don’t have to and that is the beauty of art making, you can create however you please and leave it all up to be interpreted and guessed upon without having to say a word.

So what in your opinion is the best way to tell a story!?
