The importance of writing well
A few people don’t know The Ozark. I started watching this successful series and asked myself what the secret behind that was.
Why was I so drawn into it, and why were the characters in Ozark so engaging?
Then, I watched the interviews with the cast, and there wasn’t a single one that didn’t mention the quality of the screenwriting.
I quote one of the actors:
“Thanks to Bill, I was able to explore my character. I knew perfectly well what I had to do, how I had to interpret my character.”
So, how important is the writing?
Writing is essential for the actors to be more confident in acting their roles and it is critical for the audience to be completely engaged in the fiction world prepared for them.
How many times have we spoken about the importance of reading?
So many times, I lost the count.
It’s not just about reading, but it’s mainly about understanding more about the world surrounding us and shaping it through reading. Writing has to come naturally, as a form of expressing what it would need too much time to tell by simple words.
Every time I start writing, I don’t enter another dimension, but I remain silent and hear my thoughts flowing. Someone uses some techniques to relax, but I try to focus on techniques only when creating good characters.
I study every day how to improve my writing, make it more or less dense, raise the hairbows of the audience in curiosity, and create something really, genuinely original.
But then, as every writer would say, you need to read, you need to experience, and you need to write. If you read and experience, but you don’t write, your hands get rusty after a while, and you start overthinking.
Remember when I told you I don’t go to another dimension while writing?
Yes, of course, I go to another dimension, I hear my thoughts and I have to work on them to express my ideas. However, I have to come back to my steps and make that inner voice sound more natural, engaging and understandable.
So, thanks to The Ozarks, for reminding one again how important is good writing. To remind me that what I do every day has a significant impact.
