'Fireworks and a number twenty-two' - Commentary.
The first 200 words of this essay...
The stimulus for the creation of 'Fireworks and a number twenty-two' derived from columns and articles found in many women's magazines today. These features tell of various events the writers have experienced and convey the accounts in a very 'earthy', 'honest' and 'raw' way. This allows the reader to connect with the writer through a commonality of an experience, which draws the audience more into the article. The model text that inspired my article was the column, turned book, turned major blockbuster movie 'Bridget Jones' Diary'.
'Fireworks and a number thirty-two' is a magazine column written to entertain a female audience, suitable to feature in magazines such as 'Red', 'Cosmopolitan' and 'Company'. These magazines attract a female audience, aged between twenty and thirty-five, who take an interest in fashion, beauty and modern lifestyles. In addition, females are commonly known for their fascination with gossip, and magazines such as 'Company' provide an abundance of scandal and gossip stories for women to feast on.
Magazines such as those mentioned frequently offer a commonality of experience for their audience; problem pages and real-life stories all provide an insight into the life of a 'conventional' workingwoman.
