My Writing Secret, from Bo Keely

September 9, 2012 |

 Here´s my secret writing style after reading thousands of books and standing on the shoulders of my favorite masters: Steinback, L´Amour, Ayn Rand and Art Shay. This is for longer stories. The piece is shaped as the process of an individual walking down the street. There is a sequence of five events though not always in this order:

1. what the senses see, taste, hear
2. the thoughts
3. the feeling/emotion
4. action
5. interspersed with factual material about the stage

Generally, each of the five has a paragraph before moving to the next.

It´s pure formula writing, and a computer could almost do it.

If you think about it, this is what happens when walking down the street. The sequence of five varies with individuals, and a good story teller can train a person to react in a stronger sequence to events of his life.
