There are things you can never hide; and being able to create worlds in the blink of an eye is one of those things. Let your mind wander to those happy places, to those dark places, to those places that you can't remember. Being a creator is something to not take for granted; gods don't ignore their worlds and neither should you. Be the god of your own universe and listen to the worlds. Let them live through your silver tongue. Let them live inside you. And then, you will be truly happy.
Every single word; what does that mean? It means that no matter how you write or when you write it or who reads it; each word interpreted differently. Reactions, dialogue... You are your own God and the words you write, the world you create, are the humans who worship you. Let the readers worship you by understanding the words you write. And if you don't, you let the words decide for themselves. Word can mean many things, as can your thoughts. Let the words mean whatever. Let the words be words.
Listen, do you hear that? It's how much music influences writing. Listen, can you hear that. Your mind spins as your favourite band plays in the background softly. It's very late, or very early, and you can't sleep. You let the thrashing music lift you up and let the words spill out. You are a writer an music is your fuel.
Just let me say this, this email is not for me to boast, this is something that I've decided to do for all of my English teachers throughout high school. I don't want there to be any confusion when I disagree in class with structure and outlining pieces. I don't outline, and here's why: it doesn't help me, my brain works too fast to just have little ideas. When I have an idea, I take it and work to make it longer. Outlining also makes it more difficult for me to write something good, I've tried and by the time I'm writing my ideas have changed a million times and it ends up a piece of crap.
You may be thinking, "what experience do they have?", well, I've been published as of now in 11 anthologies from contests, came in the top three in the country in another contest, and in the span of 6-ish years have written over 100 poems, 70 short stories, and 1 (almost 2) novels. I also wrote an essay on my free time about how creative people can be the most sensitive people. As I've said, this is just to inform you and let you know the skills I have and that sometimes I may argue about plot. For example, last week we learned about how most characters in short stories are very flat, but I try not to do that. Since the majority of my stories are written in the first person, I end up writing a lot of detail and by the end of the story, the characters have at least faced something. My range of words have gone from 3 sentences to over 5000 words.
I am hopeful that this doesn't come off as egotistical, I just want you to know that I know how to write well and that I intend to use my skills at the best of my abilities. Also, be warned, I'm a really angsty teen, and most of my stories are dark and filled with death.
this is where i ramble; have fun
