I didn’t do much writing yesterday, and that’s on me. Today I got some ideas down, and after my two-part post, I’ve been contemplating how better to see and explore the themes in my stories. As I’ve said before, art exists in a variety of mediums, and words happen to be where I’m focusing—at the moment, but I may want to add visual components to my work.
Here I found myself looking up definitions and theories on art as a whole. The idea was to inform my further creative decisions. Also I like learning.
Thematically, I think if I underline the root action or theme I wish to explore, I’ll be in the right direction. Not worried about story structure, as I pretty much reinforced what I previously learned from college, reading, online classes, and applying said knowledge.
So while I have a moment, I will evaluate the four projects currently on my plate and see if I identify the primary theme or goal I wish to explore. Then I gotta get more research done that directly impacts each story. Granted it is finals, and its busy time, I think I can managed an article or two this week.
As always, happy creative endeavors.
