Part of the purpose of this blog is to examine elements of narrative, especially those that could be used outside of a traditional storytelling setting. I’m going to look over my notes and write down some of the elements I hope to explore in greater depth in the future. As I write stuff in the future, I’ll try to link it here.

  • Foreshadowing
  • Paralipsis - literary white space
  • Parallels
  • Personification
  • Anthropomorphism
  • Simile
  • Synaesthesia
  • Trope
  • Anagnorisis
  • In media res – which I have explored somewhat, but deserves further examination.
  • Irony
  • Archetypes
  • Motifs
  • Themes
  • Tones
  • Myths
  • Plot – also touched upon, but clearly in need of much more examination.
  • Points Of View vs different type of film shots
  • Unreliable narration
  • Cacophony
  • Metaphor
  • Characters and all their sub-elements
  • diegetic vs extradiegetic / nondiegetic
  • Structures
  • Exposition
  • Suspension of disbelief
  • Details
  • Flashbacks / Flashfowards
  • And more as I think of them.
Not much of a post I know, but I feel a need to step back for a moment.
