What Do YOU Think?

I’m interested in getting your thoughts about stuff I see and hear, quotes I read, stuff that passes as knowledge – and starting an authorey conversation.

That’s a great way to go through your first draft, with that in mind. Honestly, whatever you feel inclined to skim, take out.

  1. For me is not the case, my mind is constantly bombarded by ideas or words that I inmediately try to write down on my little booklet that I carry around wich most people around me think I’m a nutcase (wich is probably true), anything that catches my eye, sights of mountains, people, conversations of unknown people they are having in the bus while I ride e.t.c.
    Most people that I know, for example I tell them, “what do you see?” And I point to an apple. They look at me as if I’m out of my mind or I’m pulling their leg and say, “an apple” and for me I see an apple that Eve was trying to catch while Adam was saying no and end up with a crazy story or a serious one, who knows. But for me, I write for me. Wich is probably a detriment really if you want to reach a wider audience. Anyways that story about me telling people about “what do they see?…and them saying an apple” That already gave me an idea to write a short story. So maybe yes I’m a bit nuts.

  2. I think this quote perfectly sums up how I feel as a storyteller. We live in a very fast-paced world where instant gratification is a constant. People want their information NOW, a response NOW, feedback NOW, recognition NOW. The few times I have had the moment to really talk to someone about my ideas or have them read a story or poem I’ve written, I become anxious. There’s always some part of me that’s afraid some external interference (cell phone, text message notification, disruptive stranger, etc..) is going to interrupt this moment I have with that person that exist outside of the noise and distractions of daily life.So as an avid reader, writer, and storyteller, this would be an ideal situation for me. I constantly think of new ideas, stories, plots and often imagine having someone sitting with me and hearing my story from beginning to end. This isn’t easy to come by, especially during this time in human history, but writing helps to bridge that gap. This is one of the reasons why I write: I want to be able to guide someone to a different place that exist outside of their present moment, slowly let go of the reigns, and allow them to have that journey on their own. I feel writing helps me to remain still in a fast-paced world that consists of people who intuitively crave stillness.
