the real problem with writing a really good novel
that it’s impossible to remember all of those philosophical insights
that were happening to you
when you were experiencing them—
and all those snippets of consciousness
become like lost confetti, as if a child smashed in your skull
to see what was inside,
and all they found
were torn-up memories.
Point A to Point B,
What does matter
are all those beautiful layers of consciousness…
An artist sees reality differently
and goes in
and out of their mind
to observe and understand
what can only be seen
without their eyes.

That’s exactly what sets the artists, the writers, aside from the rest of the “crowd”, because they have, the more unique ways of looking, of, interpreting things that are, dissimilar to the, average, person.
That’s why I write down every good thought and constantly reread my own words. It really helps. I know it makes me look extra crazy, but it helps. ❤️ Journaling out loud.
I ***feel*** this.
Oddly, I just wrote about banality… so it’s fresh on my mind. By the time I get to writing an idea, it’s no longer an original idea to me, and that magic is lost. I’m working on that, but I think we need to realize this issue and account for it.
