Clockwork and mischievous ditties were written by the Russian people since ancient times. I have not lost this genre of Russian folk art of my actuality in the present times.
So how to compose a chastushka so that it sounds resonant and interesting?
Think over the themes of your future chastooshkas. Most often they are dedicated to making fun of someone or something, there may be ditty-flirting, zazyvany, etc. In essence, the ditty is a short, short, capacious statement in verse form, often caustic and funny.
Choose the protagonist (or heroes) of yourChastooshkas. It can be like an animate person (for example, a tractor driver Vasya), as well as an inanimate object (for example, a bowl of soup). "Ah, a bowl of soup! There are salted mushrooms in it. The soup came out one hundred percent! On a visit who? You are welcome!"
Think of the characteristics of your protagonist chastushki. What kind is he? How do you want to show it in your work? Which side?
For example: "Vasya is a harmonious, very clever and broad-shouldered! Planted on his shoulders - immediately I lost my speech! "
Choose rhymes for the main words of the chastushki,Try to make them funny. Sometimes it is useful to laugh at yourself in a kind way over yourself or friends, over problems and fears. In addition, chastushki develop speed of thinking and sharpness of mind.
Try to compose chastushki impromptu, notWring them out. It has long been in Russia that the chastushka was a gossip, it was composed on the move, it could be an endless half-joking dialogue, even between people who were hardly acquainted or completely unfamiliar, allowing one to assess the mind and other qualities of the interlocutor.
Do not try to use profanityIn their chastushki. Although some authors try to express their feelings in a chastushka with such words, such creations are not popular with everyone.
Do your works without looking at anyThen neither were the laws of the genre. Compliance with strict rules on the size, rhyme and content of the ditties is not established. Do not be afraid to show your inner emotions and feelings, do not hesitate to think outside the box.
Perform your ditties without a musical accompaniment, or a balalaika - a tool that has been used for the accompaniment of poetic words from time immemorial.
