COMMUNICATION SKILLS-PART 3       “PAINTING A PICTURE”

COMMUNICATION SKILLS TOUCH ON EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES.  WHETHER WE ARE A WRITER, READER, SPEAKER, OR ARTIST, USING DESCRIPTIONS TO “PAINT A PICTURE” IS ONE KEY OF COMMUNICATION NOT OFTEN DISCUSSED.  PAINTING A PICTURE MEANS DESCRIBING ORALLY, IN WRITING, OR A PAINTING THAT AN ARTIST WISHES TO CONVEY A SPECIFIC MESSAGE IN, PAINTING A PICTURE IS VITAL TO KEEP OUR MESSAGE INTERESTING.  IN ORDER FOR US TO PAINT A PICTURE, WE MUST FIRST SEE IT IN OUR MINDS.  IF WE ARE A WRITER, AND HAVE A SPECIFIC STORYLINE, DOING A GREAT JOB “PAINTING A PICTURE” CAN MEAN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A READER HAVING A PIEICE OF YOUR VISION OR A BORING READ.  

WHEN WE COMMUNICATE, WE MUST SET THE STAGE OR PAINT A PICTURE WITH THE PROPER WORDS THAT ARE DESCRIPTIVE AND LIVELY  OF OUR BACKGROUND AND  CONVEY TO THE READER WITH ADJECTIVES, AND ADVERBS THE ERA IN WHICH THE STORY WE WRITE IS SET IN, ESPECIALLY IF OUR STORY IS TIME SENSITIVE.  FOR EXAMPLE, SET BACK IN THE EARLY 1900’S.   WE NEED TO SET THE BACKGROUND PICTURE IN CONTEXT REGARDLESS.  THE READER NEEDS TO BE ABLE TO FEEL AS WE DO WHEN WE WRITE THE STORY.  IF IT IS SET IN A TIME ERA, RESEARCH SHOULD BE DONE BY THE AUTHOR SO HE OR SHE CAN PAINT A CLEAR PICTURE.  IF THE TIMELINE IS NOT CLEAR, THE STORYLINE CAN BE NEGATIVELY AFFECTED.  IF THE ERA OR TIME THE STORY IS SET IN DOES NOT HAVE PROPER DESCRIPTIVES, THE WRITER WON’T CONVEY  CLEARLY THE ERA THE STORY IS SET IN FOR THE READER .  WHAT IS THE  SCENERY SURROUNDING THE CHARACTERS, HOW IS THE ARCHITECTURE IF IN A SPECIFIC COUNTRY WHERE ARCHITECTURE PLAYS A ROLE IN OUR SETTING, AND HELP THE READER GETS LOST AND CONNECT TO OUR STORY.  THIS “CONNECTION OR PICTURE” INCLUDING  DESCRIBING THE WEATHER SURROUNDING THER CHARACTERS  DOES NOT HAPPEN FOR THE READER IF A CLEAR PICTURE ISN’T PAINTED.  

AS WRITERS, WE KNOW READER’S LOVE A GREAT DESCRIPTION.  THERE ARE MANY REASONS WHY THIS IS THE CASE, THE MAIN REASON BEING IT ALLOWS THEM TO CONNECT BETTER WITH THE CHARACTERS IN THE BOOK, OUR SCENARIO PAINTED, AND FRANKLY READER’S ENJOY FEELING THEY ARE IN THE PICTURE WE PAINT.  I HOPE THIS BROUGHT TO LIGHT HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO PAINT A GREAT SCENE THEY CAN CONNECT WITH.  THIS IS ALSO TRUE WHEN WE ARE PUBLICLY SPEAKING IN GIVING A DETAILED PICTURE OF HOW OR WHEN OR WHY OR WHAT OCCURRED SURROUNDING THE EVENTS WE ARE SPEAKING ABOUT.  THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING,
