The more I learn about writing. The more I understand formatting, and how to shape ideas into sterner, attractive material. I do wanna keep y’alls attention.
I also have to face my instincts, which is to look at sillier ideas, and explore them. Every time I try to write “serious,” or emulate a tone in that vein, I end up falling short. The stories never fulfill me.
I should be writing things I like. So, what do I like to write?
I like silly, funny, laugh out loud moments, weirdness, monsters, imagintive stories. I like kink, irreverence, mischief, lunacy with charm. I also like to tease, mock, parody, satire, and goof off in stories.
I wanna play, have fun, be hammy as all get out, and feel like I can forget a whole day of woes in a story. I like to smash away agony, even if for a short while.
I feel we all can use time to not be bombarded by suffering.
When I write like I want, I don’t think of it as a chore, a labor, or a hard hurdle. Everything seems to fall into place, or I finess it into place.
I do want to be taken seriously, and for some insecure reason, I feel goober material makes me a less serious person and writer. I should quit lying to myself.
Fun is style, tone, and substance. A little dramtic, comedic flair never hurt nobody.
As always, happy creative endeavors.
