A Blessing in Disguise

塞翁失马,焉知非福

提示

  请仔细观察以下三幅连环图片的内容,并想象第四幅图片可能的发展,写出一个涵盖连环图片内容并有完整结局的故事。

写作小栈

1.   看图作文在于描述图片的内容,也就是图中人物(包括脸部表情、情绪、穿     着、人物间的互动等)、时间、地点和事件等信息的细节串连起来描写或叙述,一般会以下列两种方式来呈现:

           *描述文(description)→ 根据图中主角姓名,以第三人称的观点来描述或解读图片的内容。

           *叙述文(narration)→ 笔者本身融入图中其中一个角色,用第一人称的观点来叙述故事情节。

2.   不管采取描述文或叙述文,都要牢记运用想象力和逻辑思考先构思出一个合理的剧情,亦即重点分明,有开头、发展、结尾,以求故事情节之前后连贯。

3.   善用转折语来串连每张图之间的关系或发展,方能写出流畅的看图说故事,而非天马行空的跳跃式描述或叙述。再者,随着故事发展,可适度对图中人物的情绪变化多加着墨,让文章内容更丰富、更具可读性。

 

构思方向

检视图片后,以描述文来解读图片内容,构思出以下剧情:

一个男子从刚开始上班就很倒霉,不只是复印机出问题 → 连在需要计算机的同时,它也当机了 → 当他忙得焦头烂额时,一直在关心他的女同事适时地伸出了援手。

故事结尾则是这个女同事帮主角解决了所有的难题,而主角为了感谢她而请她吃了一顿丰盛的晚餐。

范文

  Yesterday started off badly for Kevin. He was using the photocopier when it went crazy. It started making really loud noises and sounded as if it might explode at any second. Pieces of paper shot out until it stopped working altogether. Kevin went to call the repair company. However, before he could make the call, his computer crashed. This was double the trouble because Kevin needed to print out and make copies of quite a few files on his hard drive for an important meeting that day.

  At that moment, Kevin felt like crying. Then he heard a sweet voice asking if he needed any help. It was his colleague, Gwen. She had seen that Kevin had been stressed out for some time and took the opportunity to offer some assistance. She calmly went over to the copier, pulled some pieces of paper out, and got it to work again. Kevin then told her about his computer, and with the push of a few buttons, it was back to normal. To show his appreciation, Kevin promised to take her out for a nice dinner.

 

     She had seen that Kevin had been stressed out for some time and...

  昨天对凯文来说一开始就相当糟糕。他在使用复印机时,复印机像发了狂似的。它开始发出很大的噪音,听起来好像随时可能会爆炸似的。所有影印纸一直冒出来,直到复印机完全不动才停止。凯文着手要打电话给修理公司。然而,在他拨出电话之前,他的计算机又当机了。这真是雪上加霜,因为凯文还要赶着为当天稍晚一场重要会议从硬盘中打印不少文件。

  那一刻,凯文真想哭。然后,凯文听到一个甜美的声音询问他是否需要帮忙。那是他的同事格温。格温似乎一直都有注意到凯文这段时间压力很大,所以藉此机会提供协助。她从容地走到复印机那儿,拉出了几张纸,又让它恢复运作。凯文随即又告知格温他的计算机也出了问题,在按了几个键之后,计算机恢复正常。为了表示他的感谢,凯文承诺带她去吃一顿丰盛的晚餐。
