Literature
2nd person fiction and You
You like fiction written in the second person. You may not admit it to yourself, but deep down, you really do. It teases you with its confrontational otherness, its flamboyantly displayed post-modernism, its teeth.
Do not look at its teeth. You do not want to look at its teeth.
Fiction written in the second person and you have a long history of denial. At first, you were sure it couldn't be done. Then it was done, and it was done to you, and you liked it, too, but it was only the one time and you were kind of drunk. It was an experiment, and it was interesting as an experiment, but that was all it was.
Only, of course, it wasn't.
Fiction written in the second person has invaded your dreams, and what's worse, your sexual fantasies. You'd be picturing a luscious blonde, rubbing her rubbables, yearning for your touch, when suddenly a voice would pop into your head, calmly narrating what you were doing: "You are picturing a luscious blonde," the voice would say, "rubbing her rubbables.

I haven't done any journal updates in a long time - hello thar.

Christmas was lovely, just my immediate family + my brother's fiance, and I love my gifts. I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new cooling pad for my laptop. It's supposed to get here on the fifth :eager: "On Writing" by Stephen King was from my brother, and it was awesome. I'll probably reread it sometime because I rocketed through it; it made me so excited to write, and there was so much good advice and encouragement in there. Not so much because was a big book-length pep talk (it wasn't, really) but because the things King wrote I took as encouraging. The way he describes his process, it sounds a lot like mine, or at least how I feel most natural writing. (I've already written a little of a recent idea I have percolating in my brain, and I'm stoked about it :D)

I'm generally trying to do more with my life, take more action, "get out there" as much as I can. I want to make friends and experience things and have fun. I want to read more and write more and do more, and I think I'm taking a successful few first steps :)

Here's to a wonderful rest of the holiday season and a fantastic New Year. Peace out!
  • Listening to: "Rev 22:20" by Puscifer
  • Reading: "On Writing" by Stephen King (just finis
  • Drinking: something soothing and warm

Thanks for that information :)

Yeah it's interesting, I like quotes given by famous creatives like that; in all areas of the arts.

Additionally it's always inspiring to get it off from extremely talented and successful figures such as Stephen King; I'd like to read some of his books but I never get the chance to!

I'm a graphic designer and I often need inspiration and a good portfolio because, in my industry, there are many cases where one is just another face in the crowd and those who stand out; I really want to be one of those whose work captures the attention of the design world and that quote you provided is relevant to my situation, very much so :)

Er - forgot to add this, might clarify: what King said encouraged me because he's an insanely talented and successful author, and the fact that he felt that same shame/insecurity (as the context around that quote, in the book, explained) seems to me to mean that it's not our (writers') problem, it's theirs (the naysayers).

I have no idea what sort of motivation you need, but I just read this gem today (from my Christmas present, actually, a copy of On Writing by Stephen King) "I think I was forty before I realized that almost every writer of fiction and poetry who has ever published a line has been accused of wasting his or her God-given talent. If you write (or paint or dance or sculpt or sing, I suppose), someone will try to make you feel lousy about it, that's all" (King). I often struggle with feeling like my interests, my personal bundle of human talents, are not the worthwhile ones and that I should do something else, or in some way be working harder. Again, I don't know what you struggle with yourself, but this line encouraged me greatly. Hopefully it'll do something positive for you too?
