SO – is not such a Van Gogh crazy as they speaks about him.
What color do you write in? What colors have your words? How do you feel about your sentences? You copy what you like or invent your own? Or maybe you check the rankings what is best to read and you follow this?
They are next to us, they surround us every day, and they have more influence on us than we think – COLORS.
A skillful writer or copywriter ( just like a painter) knows how to use them for his purposes, although the color palette is not limited to the circles that terrorize us at school.Our eye distinguishes over 1 mln shades and colors. Feminine more. That’s because we’re so cool. We’re better than any apple product will be ever. I MEAN EVER, EVER.
Unfortunately, our language is not there so many words, we could exactly what we feel. But we have these words. We can saturate them with colors and feelings. We can choose them properly. We just need to know what we feel.
Be like Van Gogh.
Let’s get out of the kindergarten bench, where you let us paint a blue sky, a green lawn, a house with a red roof and a yellow sun.
You knew the night sky is not dark blue, and the shadow is not black. It is not. It has never been and will not be – at least for some.That’s how van Gogh invented a long time ago. It is not enough to add black paint to shade the shadows on the image on the academy of fine arts you are threatened with a guillotine when you dare to do this).
It is not enough to use obvious words that everyone uses to delight people. What is sold to some bloggers, writers and painters will not necessarily sell at your place. Because each of us sees differently. The problem is, maybe you’re like Van Gogh. You see more, you see more. You see swirling stars in the purple sky but most of people can not see them. Like a most of people will not be interested with what you write. If you try to copy other writers, you will deceive yourself for a while and your readers for a while. But remember that the reader does not forgive the lie.
if he reads your blog then he is interested in your view of the world, he wants to feel what you feel. Get in your skin for a moment. If you impersonate someone who you are not and your reader will know about it. You re deth- without the possibility of resurrection.
So the best advice is to create your own color palette, your own vocabulary, your topics. Write and create as you see, how you hear and understand. Create new words and combination. Lets people feel like they are inside your story. Let them feel like you. Let them understand you.
Write with your emotions, speak with your voice about what interests you. Be a color in itself. Then you will be valuable.
How did van Gogh end? Not interesting, gently speaking. Does anyone know that Van Gogh was also a great writer, he did not write a single book? Little who knows, but those who have read the letters can see. Van gogh was a pioneer in his field, and unfortunately lived in a time where blogging and freelancing did not take place. They sent each other to a madhouse. Was van Gogh mad? Maybe and there were, but certainly no more than today’s artists. No more than you or me. For sure he was sick ( but in his time was noone who know this). Apparently he had deuteranopihia, possible porfiria and lots of anather misteriouse physical conflickt inside him.
If I am sorry for Him?
Well, maybe a little. I do not buy van Gogh. His style does not suit me. For me, the night is dark and the stars are bright and so many sunflowers painted by myself (unfortunately they are not spinning) but I admire the van gogh man. Because…
he had enough courage to throw away what he thought and thought, despite the mocking crowd he packed into a white caftan.
He may have reported himself. Who knows. In the end it is van Gogh.
So let us thank today for life, that we are crazy in fashion, that we can feel, write and paint the way we want. Let’s find our talents and share them with humanity. Let’s just start.
