Commentary On My Entertaining Piece Of Creative Writing

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Commentary On My Entertaining Piece Of Creative Writing I decided to write a piece on the subject of cooking in order to entertain my audience, but I didn't want to just entertain the reader by including some jokes, I wanted my piece to have a twist so I decided to write a piece which had an unusual recipe. Of course it was not meant to be actually carried out, only to point fun at the subject. I decided to write this subject as I have an interest in the subject of cooking, and what I find is that most people are put off cooking because they believe it to be boring. But a chef named "Jamie Oliver" is bringing interest back into the area of cooking. So with his popularity with people of my age, I decided to write a twisted recipe in the style of Jamie Oliver. But I was not only writing in the style of Jamie Oliver, I was also poking fun at his phrases and style of cooking which people of my age will know as they will have seen him on the television cooking. ...read more.

and litres, all weight measurements and also it was common to find summaries for what is needed for the recipe (the ingredients). But with Jamie Oliver and his television programmes, he doesn't do this, he does each individual process separately, and clearly heads it out with a heading. So I decided that this was the best way for me to translate this to text by giving each section a sub-title. I decided to base my style of language that I used on his television performance, rather than the way he writes his recipes. I decided upon this idea because the people find this style of language more recognisable and can easily associate it with the style of Jamie Oliver. As more people in the UK watch his television programme compared to reading his book, they will be more used to phrases, slang, styles and techniques he uses in his television programmes. If I was to use the style of language and techniques that he uses in his writing, then people would find it more difficult to recognise who the actual author is and it wouldn't have the same effect of entertaining than if I was to do it with the style of language that Jamie Oliver uses in his television programmes. ...read more.

Conclusion

Also, because of the recent adverts done by Jamie Oliver for the company Sainsbury's, I decided to make a reference to it, in order to poke fun at them as well as the recent press stories which is mentioned in the piece. In the terms of actions that Jamie Oliver does, I decided to poke fun at how he always manages to add salt to anything and everything. I decided to abbreviate a lot while writing, such as "I'm", "don't" and "That'll", these are all the main ones used, as Jamie Oliver does tend to abbreviate a lot while making one of his television shows. I also decided that I would use slang a lot aswell because I noticed that he pronounces these words like this so the only way I could transmit this to paper was by making it into slang, the examples are "wanna", "em", "ya" and "cos". These slang words are used commonly by Jamie Oliver. So basically just including these slang words and phrases and abbreviations is the way to write in the style of Jamie Oliver, and you can do it with anything, which in return provides entertainment for the audience.
