Caution! Caveot emptor! If you are a kid or a seriously serious person, you'd better not read this. Ok. You've been warned... I think I'm covered. It's obvious that lately I've been slacking off - but mind you, constructively so (but of course ) - and I came up with some realizations and some ideas upon these realizations. Yes, dear writers, something's been bugging me and I feel experimental about it. A lot has been said about self-doubting and about what's good writing and what's bad writing, but always struggled, non the less, to show our best side through the countless tapping on our keyboards, only to post what we believed was the perfect combination of words to produce what we hoped was (or "to be?" not sure... anyways) -> the most interesting shit anybody could stumble upon. Writing fiction means expressing something deeply personal to complete strangers, sharing your fantasies just in case somebody "gets you". We risk it all, in the name of such a cowardly and perverted entertainment. We leave our babies in the middle of the desert and watch them as they get encircled by hungry vultures, contemplating about what we should do next, in case the caravan arrives late or even, never at all. All the while the craziest of things take place outside our boundaries that if we ever happened to notice we'd surely never worry again about another writers block, whatever that means. Writers block is a myth. Just admit to the truth. You are bored of continuing what you've been doing. You got distracted by something more stimulating. Maybe reality was checking upon you or maybe you just smelled the smoke. It's perfectly understandable if you turned to look at the fire. Don't torture yourself by trying to commit to your work. (Just be sure to back it up somewhere safe... just in case). Are you sure that whipping is what you deserve? Will it make things better? Oh, I get it. You think whipping is the ritualistic passage to becoming a serious writer. Yeah... because that's what writers are supposed to be... ssseriousss. Well, bravo! You have reached your goal successfully. You self harmed yourself beyond recognition. By the way, don't forget to be interesting as well because most likely no one gives two shits about your writing journey. Let's face it. It was a long and boring journey. The hedonist only seeks to consume your drug. Writer and reader have a murderer and accomplice relationship. One can never rat out the other. See? You're covered. What's all the fuss about? You think you're writing bad? How dare you claim so? Writing bad is a skill too. It's the symmetrical opposite of good. All your life you have been trying to be a good writer while never once tried to create a bad writing on purpose. Are you up for it? Are you sure that you can do it? ...Serious huh? Well, don't forget that fat birds don't fly. Ffff! This felt good! Now that the ranting is over I'll explain what's this all about. -> Unconventionality! Let's become hooligans! Free write without remorse. I dare you to free write the rawest of the rawest thoughts you have upon anything that matters to you or doesn't. Write about anything. Your thoughts or a piece of fiction. It has to be extreme. It has to be raw and stay unedited (at least to an extend. I know that this sounds hard). First person, third person, second, past tense, present tense, why not future? Write as yourself or as a character persona. You can be whomever you want to be whenever in time you want to be! Whatever will do. We are writers after all, right? I'll respond in the most ridiculous, obscene way that I can. I will be cruel and whip you to the point of excitement. Others are obligated to do so too if they want to criticize. No pep talk here and no seriousness is allowed. Everything is ought to be LIES! The critique is ought to be a JOKE. Everything goes! You are free my lovelies! Fly! Prrr! Ok. Maybe not everything. Hm... I just thought about this. You can't critique upon a critique. You may respond to it but not critique it or question it. Doom it if you will but don't question it. If you do, this means that you are taking this way more seriously than need to be taken and you'll only get traumatized in the process. Just to make things more clear, just to make sure that things won't get out of hand whenever you want to make a critique start by writing: Critique: Blah blah bla... You can start by writing down your piece, or criticize mine. I'm dying for some heartfelt strokes of your rhythm stick. (May god be with us)!
