Have you noticed any repetitions or trends in your writing? Any habits that you are having difficulty breaking? Or are you completely comfortable in your habits? I think I understand where my patterns come from but I am unsure how I feel about them. Nevertheless, I'd like to push myself to break them just to be able to. 1) My deep introspection has led me to write stories about the human condition. My themes may seem broad and pretentious, impersonal. 2) My personal history has made me an intense person. I like to push people to feel emotional extremes. 3) My exposure to education and media has given me a certain philosophy on the relationship between humans and storytelling. As a result, I tend to adhere to the traditional storytelling formula of rising action and climax along with some moral redemption. I might like to try to deviate one day, but that itself might be a predictable rebellion in the form of nihilism or absurdism.
