At the end of my last blog I said: 'Next time I'm going to try out making a Youtube 'reactions' video – in the first case it will be my reaction to Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time In Hollywood which I saw in Bristol a few days ago and LOVED his re-imagining of the Sharon Tate case.' Well here it is! youtu.be/74eAQdtF2p0
I love the power of reimagined stories. For instance (spoiler alert) the way that Tarantino handled the terrifying denouement of the Sharon Tate case was quite a stroke of beauty and genius combined. By shifting who the victims of the case were and by keeping Sharon alive it handed over a feeling of peace to her soul, allowing her to live on brightly.
I look at the subject of reimagining (contemporising myth and story) in my 10 hour Advanced Creative Writing Course – available for immediate download here: https://www.freewriterscentre.org/store/p3/Advanced_Creative_Writing_Course.html
The focus of the four sessions (making up the 10 hours) goes like this:
Week 1: Contemporising myth, finding the personal links to given stories; looking at the existing plots and motifs in such stories and mimicking/re-writing them. Also looking at, discussing and using Cavafy's Ithaca.
Week 2: Symbolism and surrealism in writing.
Week 3: Review and critique: how to write non fiction creatively.
Week 4: Write your own Creation Myth. Looking at the 5 given plots of worldwide creation myths
and writing your own birth of a new world.
