Why Lightly Annotating Novels Is Important For Writers



I'm intoxicated so anything basically is highlighted or as I like to underline various different parts but find interesting in a novel and give you some description about what your thought processes may be to do what character development you might have to do with something well but the character another plot devices or just anything that really catches your interest and doing those different things could help you be a better writer because you're actively taking those other instead of just zooming through it a book and I have three books I'm going to use as examples that I'm Anna paid the first book is called The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood then I'll read to you the back description to describe what the book is about offered as a hand made in the public affiliate she may leave the house but the commander and his wife once birthday to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read she must lie on her back once a month and pray that the commander it makes her pregnant because in an eight decline burst offered and the other hand maids are valued if their ovaries are viable often I remember the years before she lived in Maine level for fun and he played with protected her daughter but she had a job money of her own access to knowledge but all of that is gone now so the end this is the setting for this world and this woman offered she hasn't grown over that he's basically describing her Roman I put a little asterisk and I put near this infant and Betsy near the boat two sentences and it says the door of the room not my room I abused to save my is not locked in fact it doesn't shut up properly now you might think what's the big deal about that me I saw this as rebel wave offer can and sometimes when I'm making notes I don't always write in perfect English sometimes I do so I'm going to make sure I explain what that meant that meant that I believe this was authorized eternal way of rebelling and the only way she could she was acknowledging that this room she was dating was not her room it was Abram juicing and she heard to have both of them and if that is her internal way of rebelling in not letting these horrible society completely brainwashed her the next book I'll refer to is my friends book was his Blair cousin in this book is the distance between the first book in a series in the very first sentence says clock ticked by in this silent classroom now that in itself might seem like okay there's nothing going on here but one of the notes I made was good sentence for setting shows how in the classroom and atmosphere in there what I meant by that is that this is the very first sentence and we already know that this setting that is character is going to be in is going to be in a classroom and it's silent so setting up the atmosphere a sudden basically has to do at the time where the people are various aspects like that things that you really have to take care in a book you trust me people can notice it is not there sometimes be something like to be taken for granted and other people that's absolute something that they love so I thought this was a good person and this book is it says basically orphaned at the age of 13 Esther do ten dreams of the day she could leave her small town and join the ranks of the prestigious planetary force they're bringing combination of ranges ever since been it's a lot of her family she has wanted to become a ranger so she can stop atrocities like what happened to her from happening again but ever before she can become a ranger she has to out bring the hundreds of other major hopefuls make matters worse she can no longer stay Orphanage says she turns 18 meaning she has to get in soon while she starts a roof over top of her head she has the will and determination but she can't afford to get distracted even if it means putting her old things inside if Esther run full speed towards the gold strong horses work in the background forces that may prove to be stronger than anything she has ever faced well Esther's actually save a world or be the catalyst okay the next book this has to do this is Carver Gina Riley this is from the once upon a time series this is by Wendy Tolbert once upon a time is his story where they basically put all the times of Disney characters into one show that also deals with the modern world while going referring back to the Disney characters in their Disney original world this is about Regina the evil which gives Snow White the poisoned Apple seeing of it out of here and these are some notes that I made one note I made was I wish you would have trumped up the stairs and locked the door with her own two hands said amazing magic however subtlety was not her nature this is going to show how Regina is a teenager here and how she already on the second page is showing that she's conflict of her mother and then a comparison I'm going to read this part I've always admired the vote my father had brought home from me for one of his many trips not only did it protect me from hard chilly floor beneath but it also have kept me a muse only I spent countless hours lying on my belly letting my imagination run rampant with adventures I could have of all the trees flowers and animals woven into it as if it were real just opposite warm with father so that was showing that instead of shame and she'd wish the mother would just hurry up and he's go upstairs and would just use ninth magic she admires something the father gave her and it's breathing her happiness thinking about it yeah in another sentence I will show you I will have where it says he shrugs modestly keep in mind for next time that nothing found in nature is truly perfect and I put is there a double meaning I felt like that had to do with some type of something relevant to the plot because it says that keep in mind that time and nothing got in each other is truly perfect like that something that's gonna be relevant to the plot just release it also the last sentence that I have in here that I wanted to go over with everybody is this is Regina she said I have the feeling you'll be a force to be reckoned with someday and I could evil clean cliffhanger dialogue it makes you want to see how Regina goes about this her mother and in magical chances so in this book this is basically Dina doesn't have her powers yet she's started to develop them for something just going to say this is all spoilers don't worry in the description below these are spoilers if you don't want to see the spoilers then don't sin to the it part of the book where it talks about Medina rising you don't go here just go to the end but anyway I've seen like this is saying it's working back in a way that people clean it very powerful and the series and also just in the story because she me she gave Snow White the Apple I'm saying that it's showing that it's a cliffhanger if it's at the end of the chapter and that they makes you want to know how Regina goes about this with her mother who's very controlling and how she gets her magical powers and also I had in here my dear don't wait one more thing I will be my dear daughter I'm sure Claire would agree at least in your art teacher was the only respectable choice in the matter what kind of mother would I be by a lot of the touch you as if you were a waitress in a city tavern I pretty much I put it back because I was really upset with the mothers the uh Regina had like some mutual attraction with this teacher who's not that much older refer he's not really trying to be believed he's being inappropriate that just if you tell that they're feeling feelings there and the mother's not they can you tell me the mother's character he's not acting inward unifesp interest she just wants to control her and I think you just want to control her life as your pond let me see there's anything else that I wanted to come from here I don't want to ruin this whole boat for anybody in case anyone likes Disney or Once Upon a Time or fairy tales I like this book so these are some different notes that I've taken in some different way that I'm showing that writing those notes down helps you think about various things that are happening in the story and be aware of it if you have any questions you can definitely comment below and I will answer if you like this video and give it a thumbs up and thank you so much have a wonderful day
