Hey, just another writer in this otherwise world of lawless literature. Just going to use this space to post basically everything I’m doing at anytime. In other words, expect short stories, novellas, and the occasional ramble. I’m not much of a genre writer, so a wide variety of genres is to be expected. However, from reading my own works and from your own exploration there is commonality.
To me writing is a form of art. It is the inevitable dance of words across a page, and as those words finish their dance, they become coherent sentences, a performance. String a few performances together, and you have an act, a paragraph. All of the acts are composed together to form a routine, a story. Once I get into the flow of it, words flow onto the page like water in a fall. Suddenly, I’m on stage, and I’m performing, I’m creating a routine for everyone. That’s the art of writing, and that’s why I love doing it.
Admittedly, I post a lot of pieces that are for the most part unpolished. I say this in retrospect to the lack of clear editing in a lot of the things that I have published. In one way, it’s just my way of expressing whatever story I had and just pumping it out there, everything in my head falling onto the page and then to the reader. But in looking at those works, I find myself not enjoying them. They’re very clunky, and inefficient, things could be worked on.
And so, the crackdown of me actually going through my pieces and editing them to be more polished is something I hope to do more, along with taking time to post new stories already polished. But either way, those pieces will remain here as I’ve made them, since I don’t entirely hate them. And I don’t find them a wasted effort on my part. No art is wasted effort. It’s just that I need to find time to shine those pieces to the best I can make them.
