The Modern American Woman (A Very Short Story) www.authspot.com/Short-Stories/The-Modern-American-Woman.632185
As a writer, I try to use words to paint a picture that tells a story. Or we can call this “cinema on the page.” There are plenty of examples of this cinema on the page in the sidebar under the category Flash Fiction Stories by Guy Hogan. What’s so great about cinema on the page?
Well, what’s so great about cinema on the silver screen? I can only imagine the shock of movie goers in let’s say 1895-1905. Yes, there were movies even then although they were only black and white with no sound and most were only a few minutes long. But they were movies all right and these first primitive films “packed them in.”
The reason the “flickers,” as they were called, packed them in is because of the images of “life” on the screen. People could “see” life on the silver screen.
That’s why I try to use words to paint a picture that tells a story. Why don’t you try cinematic writing, too.
