Writing Fiction in Thai
Writing Fiction in Thai
Writing a fiction Thai poem may sound difficult. However, if you really want to be successful in creating your own unique novel, the difficulty will be one of overcoming the language barrier. If you are already familiar with Thai, you would have noticed that it has its own particular vocabulary and sentence structure. This is very different from the English language. It is therefore, imperative that you learn some basics of the language. If you know Thai already, then you can skip this step.
Firstly, you need to come up with a story or plot of a novel. You need to think about what kind of story you want to write. In short, think about the subject or theme you want your story to cover. From there, you will be able to choose the type of poem you would like to translate into Thai.
If you want to write a funny story, you can start by thinking about how a joke is made in Thai. This is actually the easiest step of writing any fiction poem. By thinking about a joke, you can come up with a story that relates it to life. With your imagination, you can make the story as hilarious as possible.
After you have created a story for your novel, you can now create a story board or screenplay. A story board is simply a map of your story in large size. It is divided into chapters, sub-chapters and small scenes. These would represent the parts of your story. All these sections would be connected by a string of words and images that connect each section together.
Another way to write your novel in Thai is to use a storyboard and a poem. For example, you could put in a scene of someone speaking a funny poem. Then, connect the poem to the person speaking the poem. You could also do the reverse by putting in a scene where the person is sad, then connect the sad poem to the person speaking the sad poem. These are simple examples and you could actually do this on your story board, not a screenplay.
There are many software packages that will help you create a Thai storyboard and screenplay. The most simple would be to take a piece of paper, write some simple sentences, then draw some pictures to connect these. Create the storyboard and when you are satisfied with it, print it out so you can look at it in real time and play with it. This is one of the most creative ways of doing a story because you get to see how it would turn out.
If you feel like writing more, you can even hire an artist to create the story for you. If you choose this option, make sure you have the budget. You can either pay the artist directly or have the company you are working with send a representative to your house and draw up a rough draft. Let the artist know if you have any specific ideas on how you would want the final product to look.
Fiction Thai Writing requires a lot of imagination. It doesn’t have to be overly complicated just yet. The more you explore how to express yourself through poetry, the better. If you are having trouble expressing yourself creatively through words, try some poetry. It is all about expressing who you are and what you want the story to do.
When writing the story, you can start by describing a scene in your mind. You may do this while watching a video that describes a specific scene in Thailand. Then, you will have something to help you describe in your story. However, once you are stuck in a certain part of the story, just write it down until you can find a frame of mind where you are totally engrossed in your story.
Don’t be afraid to be different. Although Thai writers are known for their creativity, it does not mean that you cannot be as creative as them. It would just mean that you have to be a bit more creative than them.
Fiction Thai Writing can help you express yourself more than you expect. Just make sure you are writing about something you are very interested in. After all, it is not the creative part of the story that will interest readers, but the story itself. Your story has to grab their attention from the first word down to the last word. Once readers get hooked on your story, they would always want to read more of what you write.
