Getting better at Dangerous Writing
This thread pretty much sums up the premise.
It's not at all apparent but what I'm implicitly trying to do isn't to merely write short stories.— ykgoon.com (@ykgoon) March 27, 2021
I'm using this process as a vehicle to uncover traumas and integrate shadows. https://t.co/lmCQMpPDqX
My short fictions are essentially attempts at uncovering traumas and psychologicaly shadows.
So far the results are questionable at best, in that it hardly undug anything of note (save for a few).
Journey, not destination; process, not outcome.
It's interesting to note that in the process of crafting stories I would be able to tell that I'm engaging the same old and not breaking new grounds. At least I've developed some good taste all these while.
On the topic of process, I'm reminded on a recent episode Tim Ferriss's show featuring Jerry Seinfeld. Everybody knows he has this notebook for his materials but there's a specific section where he captures little anecdotes on annoyances, musings and whatever random things that has potential.
I wonder if I should start capturing any negative emotions on text and make it a creative repository to draw from.
