提示

請仔細觀察左側四幅連環圖片的內容, 然後寫出一篇涵蓋每張圖片內容且結局完整的故事,文長至少 120 個單詞( words)。

寫作小棧

  1. 看圖作文在於描述圖片的內容,也就是圖中人物(包括臉部表情、情緒、穿著、人物互動等)、時間、地點和事件等資訊的細節串連起來描寫或敘述,一般會以下列兩種方式來呈現:
    * 描述文(description)→ 根據圖中主角姓名,以第三人稱的觀點來描述或解讀圖片的內容。
    * 敘述文(narration)→ 筆者本身融入圖中其中一個角色,用第一人稱的觀點來敘述故事情節。
  2. 不管採取描述文或敘述文,都記得運用想像力和邏輯思考先構思出一個合理的劇情,亦即重點分明,有開頭、發展、結尾,以求故事情節前後連貫。
  3. 善用轉折語來串連每張圖之間的關係或發展,方能寫出流暢的看圖說故事,而非天馬行空的跳躍式描述或敘述。再者,隨著故事發展,可適度對圖中人物的情緒變化多加著墨,讓文章內容更豐富且更具可讀性。

構思方向

檢視圖片後,以描述文來解讀圖片內容,構思出以下劇情:
Amy 很久沒有見到她的朋友 Rachel 了,所以打電話給她,聊聊近況並約好隔天下午一點鐘在常春藤餐廳碰面吃午餐 → Rachel 那天一點鐘準時抵達常春藤餐廳門口並打電話跟 Amy 說她已經到了 → 當 Amy 氣喘吁吁又滿頭大汗地抵達餐廳時,卻到處都沒看到 Rachel → Amy 打電話詢問 Rachel,頓時,她們兩人同時意識到她們去了同一家連鎖餐廳的不同分店。

範文

Amy hadn’t seen her friend Rachel in a long time, so one day, she called her up to invite her to lunch. Rachel was ecstatic to hear from her old friend and they spent about 45 minutes making up for lost time. They agreed to meet each other at the Ivy Restaurant at 1:00 p.m. the next day.

Rachel, who is always on time for everything, got to the Ivy Restaurant at 1:00 p.m. on the dot that day. She then called Amy to inform her that she was there. Amy said she was on her way and would be at the restaurant in five minutes. However, when she arrived at the restaurant, breathless and sweaty, she couldn’t see Rachel anywhere.

Amy called Rachel and told her that she was waiting at the front door, but that she couldn’t see her. Rachel replied that she was also presently standing in front of the Ivy Restaurant. All of a sudden, they both simultaneously realized what had happened. They had gone to different branches of the same restaurant chain. They both apologized and promised to be more specific about details to avoid such mix-ups in the future.

中文翻譯僅供參考,請勿逐字逐句對照

艾咪很久沒有見到她的朋友瑞秋了,所以有一天,她打電話邀她去吃午飯。瑞秋接到老朋友的電話欣喜若狂,她們聊了大約四十五分鐘來彌補失去的時光。她們約好隔天下午一點鐘在常春藤餐廳碰面。
凡事向來準時的瑞秋那天下午一點鐘整抵達常春藤餐廳。接著她打電話通知艾咪她已經到了。艾咪說她正在路上,大約再五分鐘會到。然而,當艾咪氣喘吁吁又滿頭大汗地抵達餐廳時,卻到處都沒看到瑞秋。
艾咪打電話給瑞秋,告訴瑞秋她正在大門等,卻沒看到她。瑞秋回答說,她現在也站在常春藤餐廳前面。頓時,她們兩人同時意識到發生了什麼事。她們去了同一家連鎖餐廳的不同分店。她們都向對方道歉並承諾未來在細節上會更加明確,以避免再發生這樣子的混淆。
